Molecular Simulation 2020:
Present, Past and Future

Due to the current situation with the pandemic, the conference will not be taking place in July 2020 as initially planned and it will be postponed to July 2021. Registration is presently closed, more news will be posted later in the year.

The conference will take place in Erice (Italy) from 5th to 9th July 2021 at the Villa San Giovanni complex, previously a clerical summer residence but now used for conferences and cultural manifestations. The medieval town of Erice in Sicily is situated at the top of a mountain overlooking the City of Trapani.

This meeting will bring together old and new friends to discuss the state of the art, methods and current challenges in computer simulations, as well as reflect on the past, present and future of the field. The meeting will enable scientists from different generations to meet in an atmosphere that combines excellence and open discussions and will pave the way for new scientific advances and collaborations.

The conference is a special event on the occasion of Prof Michael Klein’s 80th birthday to highlight the vitality and future perspectives of the field, starting from his numerous important and remarkable contributions to chemistry, biophysics, materials science, and, in particular, computer simulation.
