The conference will cover a broad range of topics in computational and theoretical chemistry, including wavefunction-based methods, DFT and various applications. The aim of the Winterschool is to combine tutorial-style lectures with the latest research results and increase the accessibility of scientific research to all scientists, regardless of their situation. There will be an online forum for discussion and the opportunity for early career scientists to present their work in the form of Single Figure Presentations.
This year’s edition of the conference will also feature a workshop on the ADF software (https://www.scm.com/) on 20th February,

Discussion sessions will be planned during the meeting, giving participants a chance to ask and discuss various scientific questions raised during the school.
