About The Midwest
Theoretical Chemistry Conference

For 51 years, the MWTCC has been a distinctive meeting where students, faculty, and scientists come together in a relaxed environment to share their latest results in theoretical and computational chemistry. The MWTCC is a short, inexpensive and intensely focused meeting. Participants will be able to learn about the latest advances, present their work, and build relationships with other researchers from around the Midwest.
