This week, the CCEM Group has had the opportunity of disseminating the wonders of Computational Modelling to the general public in the Trinity PROBE, as part of a series of workshops carried out by the most amazing research groups in our college. With the help of Max, Arantxa and Eric, we revealed the molecular shape of water with an interactive experiment in a giant touch screen, where everyone that came to our stand was able to see, in real-time, how water molecules are oriented in a simple molecular dynamics simulation. This is the first outreach activity that we do in the CCEM Group, and it exceeded our expectations by far. We had a lot of fun, and we cannot wait to do it again next year!
With around 1,000 participants in the last editions, the Biennial Meeting of Chemistry has become an essential event for the Spanish chemistry community because, in addition to disseminating the most relevant results of the chemical research carried out in this country, it also gives the opportunity to interact with a large number of internationally renowned researchers who will be attending as speakers.
This edition will be attended by 6 plenary speakers and more than 80 top-level guest speakers, who will deal with a wide range of subjects throughout the 22 Symposiums which will take place in parallel sessions during the 5-day conference.
After attending this year’s National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Orlando, Florida, the members of CCEM are attending the XXXVII Biennial Meeting of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry in San Sebastián, the Basque Country. We will be giving a talk and presenting a poster related to two of our most interesting projects. If you want to ask us any questions and know about our research, see you in San Sebastián from the 26th to the 30th of May!
