Thanks and see you in 2014!

The X Girona Seminar 2012 has already finished. It has been a very relevant meeting, which has gathered most of the top researchers in the field. From the IQC we thank all researchers who have attended the meeting, and we hope that they have enjoyed both the scientific content and the social events enclosed. We are already thinking about eh next XI Girona Seminar 2014. See you soon in Girona!

X Girona Seminar is open for scientific discussion

The X Girona Seminar on Theoretical and Computational Chemistry for the Modeling of Biochemical Systems: From Theory to Applications is already open for scientific discussion. This morning, the opening ceremony has counted with the presence of the city major of Girona, Carles Puigdemont, the vicerector of the University of Girona, Jesúss Garcia-Gil, and the chairman of X Girona Seminar, Miquel Solà. From today and till next Thursday the most relevant scientists in this field will discuss on their last research in Girona.

X Girona Seminar starts tomorrow

The X Girona Seminar 2012 on Theoretical and Computational Chemistry for the Modeling of Biochemical Systems: From Theory to Applications starts tomorrow. It will be celebrated from July 2nd to July 5th in the Auditori Josep Irla of Girona. It includes 28 invited lectures, 24 short communications and 60 posters.

The aim of the conference is to discuss the recent advances in the theoretical modeling of biochemical systems and biophysical processes, from new methodological developments to applications. This will be the main subject, although, following the philosophy of the previous Girona Seminars, other aspects such as theoretical chemistry, photochemistry, reactivity of organic and organometallic molecules, catalysis, molecular properties or nature of the chemical bond will be also welcome.


BE VERY WELCOME TO THE CITY OF GIRONA AND TO ITS UNIVERSITY!

Definitive Program of the X Girona Seminar

The program for the upcoming X Girona Seminar is done. You’re welcome to check it and see the impressing international list of scientists from the best research groups working on the modeling of biochemical systems.

 The X Girona Seminar will also include three social events, which will include:

– On July 2nd: Guided visit to the old quartier of Girona (19:45 – 21:15h).

– On July 3rd: Excursion to the Costa Brava, with dinner included (16:40 – 22:00h).

– On July 4th: Conference gala dinner in Hotel Carlemany  (21:00h).

Finally, please find above a video created in the recent TEDxUdG event celebrated in our Universitat de Girona, under the theme “Swell People and Ideas, Enhanced University”.

Open Registration to the Girona Seminar 2012

The registration to the Girona Seminar 2012 is already open. The Seminar will include 34 lectures plus a reduced number of short oral communications, as well as a poster session. Please follow the REGISTRATION link and join us in Girona in July.

Conference site

The X Girona Seminar will take place at the Auditori Josep Irla (Plaça de l’Hospital), which is located in the church of the old hospital Santa Caterina of Girona, now converted into the main building of the Catalan Government in Girona.

Inside the room there is the painting called “The Great Day of Girona”, the largest painting in the history of Catalan art.

International Advisory Board set up

The International Advisory Board of the X Girona Seminar is already set up, and it is composed of outstanding researchers in the field of modeling biochemical  and biophysical systems. Almost all of them will attend the conference and deliver a conference. The list of the members:

Introduction to X Girona Seminar

The Girona Seminars have taken place in the historic town of Girona every two years since back to 1993, with the aim of bringing together, in a beautiful environment and in an informal and friendly atmosphere, young and senior scientists.

For 2012, we have decided to continue the organization of the Girona Seminars that started in 1993 and continued until 2010 with the IX edition (see also a list of previous organized congresses). We are now starting the organization of the X Girona Seminar that will be held at the Universitat de Girona from July 2th until July 5th 2012.

The aim of the conference is to discuss the recent advances in the theoretical modeling of biochemical systems and biophysical processes, from new methodological developments to applications. This will be the main subject, although, following the philosophy of the previous Girona Seminars, other aspects such as theoretical chemistry, photochemistry, reactivity of organic and organometallic molecules, catalysis, molecular properties or nature of the chemical bond will be also welcome.
