Overview for 2022

FOMMS 2022 will be held July 17-21, 2022 at The Lake Lawn resort in Delavan, WI (85 miles northwest from Chicago O'Hare airport and 50 miles southwest from Milwaukee Mitchell airport). 

FOMMS 2022 will be the eighth triennial FOMMS conference showcasing new developments and applications of computational quantum chemistry, statistical mechanics, molecular simulation and theory, and continuum and engineering process simulation.  The theme of the 2022 conference is Molecular Modeling and the Data Revolution.  Past FOMMS conferences have attracted an interdisciplinary mix of participants that includes chemical engineers, chemists, physicists, and materials scientists from both academia (including students and postdocs), government laboratories, and industry.  The FOMMS conference is a Gordon-style meeting, with invited talks (plus ample discussion time), as well as poster sessions for contributed papers.  The FOMMS conference also features hands-on workshops on research and educational topics.   A good amount of free time is built into the schedule for scientific discussions, and activities are planned that take advantage of the beautiful surroundings, including hiking, water sports, and local tours. 

FOMMS 2022 will be anchored by a Keynote Lecture on Sunday evening and the FOMMS Medal Lecture on Thursday afternoon.  Previous medal winners are Michele Parrinello (2009), Keith Gubbins (2012), Carol Hall (2015), and Peter Cummings (2018).

We look forward to seeing you at FOMMS. Please find below some helpful information for participants.
