To inspire, motivate and support young women in computational and theoretical chemistry
We are proud and excited to organise the “Women make Computational Chemistry (COMP)” symposium at the 2019 Fall National Meeting in San Diego. The symposium will be dedicated to graduate students and post-docs, who will receive direct mentorship from renowned women PIs, such mentoring the next generation of women in computational chemistry.

Ada Lovelace (picture) is the role model of the “Women MAKE COMP” symposium. Ada Lovelace (1815–1852) was an English mathematician and writer, known for having founded computing science. She wrote the first computer program, disclosing for the first time that computers could do much more than just calculations. Her visionary perspective pioneered our current computer age.
