The Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry (STC) is an annual meeting of scientists from all areas of Theoretical Chemistry in which a specific topical focus is featured each year. See the homepage of Arbeitsgemeinschaft Theoretische Chemie (AGTC) for the long history of the STC conference series.

We welcome and encourage very much younger members in our community to register and participate in this event. We invite submissions of abstracts for oral and poster contributions. The registration/application deadline is July 31 2017. You can register and submit abstracts online now. Note that we do not request any registration fees for this conference. Participants only need to cover their travel and accommodation expenses.

It is both an honor and a pleasure for the theory labs of Anatole von Lilienfeld and Markus Meuwly at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, University of Basel to host the STC 2017 in Basel for a second time (after Martin Jungen in 1976). This year's STC will take place in the Bernoullianum, and the theme is ''Big Data in Chemistry: From Molecular Structure to Condensed Phase Dynamics''.

The Aug 22 Tuesday afternoon session of the STC will be held jointly with the Computational Chemistry Section of the 2017 Swiss Chemical Society Fall meeting. All SCS members and representatives of Swiss academic or industrial institutions are kindly requested to register and submit their abstract here. The speakers will be selected from the abstracts received for this session. There will be no dedicated SCS Poster Session.
