The 2018 Conference on Foundations of Molecular Modeling and Simulation (FOMMS 2018) will be held July 15-20, 2018 at Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan, WI. In addition to outstanding lectures and discussion on a range of topics in molecular modeling and simulation, the conference will include mini-workshops, organized outings, and the FOMMS Medal banquet.


FOMMS 2018 will be held July 15-20, 2018 at The Lake Lawn resort in Delavan, WI (85 miles from Chicago O'Hare airport and 50 miles from Milwaukee Mitchell airport). 

FOMMS 2018 will be the seventh triennial FOMMS conference showcasing applications of theory of computational quantum chemistry, molecular science, and engineering simulation.  The theme of the 2018 meeting is Innovations for Complex Systems.  Past FOMMS meetings 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 meeting is a Gordon-style conference, with invited talks (plus ample discussion time) in the mornings and evenings, as well as poster sessions for contributed papers. We also hold 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, rafting, and local tours. In addition, the FOMMS medal will be awarded for the fourth time. Previous medal winners are Prof. Michele Parrinello (2009), Prof. Keith Gubbins (2012), and Prof. Carol Hall (2015).

FOMMS 2018 is sponsored by CAChE ( and by the Computational Molecular Science and Engineering Forum (CoMSEF) of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), as well as the AIChE Nanoscale Science & Engineering Forum.
