Sérgio F. Sousa represented BioSIM at 12th Congress on Electronic Structure Principles and Applications (ESPA-2022) which took place in Vigo, Spain, on 21st-24th June 2022.
ESPA (Electronic Structure Principles and Applications) is a series of international conferences organized by the Spanish Community of Quantum Chemists. The ESPA conferences, initiated in 1998, have a two year periodicity and cover all major fields of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry from method development to state-of-the-art applications across computational molecular science. These conferences were initially intended to bring together the Spanish Theoretical and Computational Chemistry community, however, they grew over time (both in national and international participation), thereby evolving into a key event with international reputation in the field.
This year’s edition counted with close to 300 participants and included plenary lectures by eminent scientists in the computational field such as Donald G. Truhlar, Peter Gill, Krishnan Raghavachari and Laura Gagliardi.
