Special Symposium

The largest gathering in the field worldwide, ICCN is the premier technical forum for presenting the latest research and development in computational methods, tools and applications in the biology, chemistry, physics and materials fields.

With the continued miniaturization and blending of technologies, advanced computational techniques in the nano and micro regimes are paramount in the advancement of all high technology regardless of its traditional domain. The ICCN provides a forum for the interdisciplinary blending of computational efforts in biology, chemistry, physics and materials, founded on inherently similar ab initio approaches but applied towards traditionally distinct disciplines.
