Sérgio F. Sousa represented BioSIM at the “2nd Quantum International Frontiers” Meeting that took place in Shanghai, China between November 18 and 22, with oral communication entitled “Application of Quantum Mechanics in the Study of Enzymatic Mechanisms”.
Quantum theories emerged about a century ago with a completely new view of the Universe then the previously established classical one. However, only very recently we are really moving to the quantum era with the direct applications of quantum theories in very diverse disciplines as telecommunication, technology, material science, bioscience, cryptography, quantum computing and so on. The new established International Quantum Frontier series acts as a platform for the exchange of experience, research directions and techniques, and nexus for new ideas in the Quantum Sciences by bringing together and encouraging collaboration between researchers working on different aspects of quantum theories and their applications in “real life”.
The meeting included presentations in the Developments in Theoretical Concepts in Quantum Chemistry, Spectroscopy, Molecular Structure and Dynamics, Quantum Effects and Applications, Quantum Computing and Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Information, Catalysis, Reactive Collisions and Chemical Reactions, Surfaces and Interfaces of Complexes and Clusters, Molecular and Nanomaterials for Electronics and Atoms and Molecules in Strong Fields
