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.

Topics & Application Areas

Online abstract submissions are now being accepted. Proposed topics include, but are not be limited to:

  • Molecular Modeling
  • Protein Engineering
  • Structural Biology

Journal Submissions

Molecular Simulation

Molecular Simulation

Selected Nanotech Proceedings papers will be reviewed and invited into a Special Issue of Molecular Simulation. The journal covers all aspects of research related to, or of importance to, molecular modelling and simulation (including informatics, theoretical and experimental work).

For consideration into this Special Issue of Molecular Simulations, please select the “Submit to Molecular Simulation” button during the on-line submission procedure. You may only select a single journal during the submission process.
