Following on the highly popular series of QBIC meetings in Warwick (1999), Lund (2003), Český Krumlov (2011), Bath (2018), and Marseille (2019), the sixth Quantum Bio·Inorganic Chemistry Conference took place in Warsaw, Poland, on August 29 - September 1, 2023. The conference was organized jointly by the Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences (IChF) in Warsaw, and the Laboratory of Chemistry and Biology of Metals (LCBM), French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). The conference focused on computational inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry, covering theoretical methods, novel applications, and combined computational/experimental approaches.
The QBIC Society opens a call for nominations for the Quantum Bio-Inorganic Chemistry Society Award for the years 2023 and 2024. The award is intended to recognise outstanding contributions in the field of inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry that were achieved with theoretical, quantum chemical or computational methods. It will recognise a specific body of work, developed in one paper or a series of papers, that established new chemical or physical insights into a long-standing question, developed a new method or concept, or defined a new research direction. Awardees will be given the opportunity to present their research in award lectures during the next international QBIC meeting.
Closing date for nominations is January 15th, 2024. For more details, please download the call for nominations.
The "QBIC Topics" is a new activity of the QBIC Society. In these monthly panel meetings, a discussion leader speaks with a number of invited experts on a topic that is of interest to the wider QBIC community. Each meeting starts with a general introduction of the topic by the discussion leader, followed by short statements by the invited experts and a general discussion between the panel members. The audience can participate with questions or comments.
The Quantum Bio·Inorganic Chemistry Society was founded in 2018 with the purpose of bringing together scientists from academia and industry who are working in the broad fields of theoretical and computational inorganic, bioinorganic, and biological chemistry. Our aim is to encourage, support, and promote all aspects of research and knowledge exchange in these areas of science.
Among the activities of the Society are the organization of regular international scientific meetings, the support of summer/winter schools targeted at young scientists, and the coordination of networking actions.
The Society plays a key role in connecting the international community of computational chemists that are active in method development or applications within the scope of inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry. Application for membership is open to any individual from all over the world.
