    FOMMS 2015 will be the sixth triennial FOMMS conference showcasing applications of theory of computational quantum chemistry, molecular science, and engineering simulation.  The theme of the 2015 meeting is Molecular Modeling and the Materials Genome.  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 third time. Previous medal winners are Prof. Michele Parrinello (2009) and Prof. Keith Gubbins (2012).
