The Computational Chemistry Days have a long, successful history of bringing scientists together to initiate collaboration and share inspiring ideas. This year, the Days were organised in Helsinki, on 28th–29th May 2018. The two days were filled with inspirational talks and good company in an exceptionally beautiful and summery Helsinki.
The emphasis of this edition of the meeting was computational method development, including machine-learning techniques. We had four outstanding international plenary speakers representing this year's themes. In addition, a number of high-impact national speakers and junior scientists presented their work. The poster session, coffee breaks, and evening programme offered a magnificent setting for networking with fellow scientists, senior and junior alike.
The Computational Chemistry Days offer a perfect opportunity for getting an overview of what can be, and what is studied with the aid of theoretical and computational simulation techniques, also for experimentally oriented scientists. Next year, see you in Kuopio!
