This conference is a forum for domestic and international scientists to present their researches and scientific works, and to discuss topics focusing on computational techniques, molecular science, and simulation in biomedicine. The conference includes the following main topics: History of Computational Quantum Chemistry-Theory of Models-Development of Computational Methods; Quantum Chemistry Calculations for gas, liquid, and solid phases; “Artificial Intelligence” (AI) and “Machine Learning” in computational quantum chemistry and biomedical simulation; Materials Science – Catalytic materials; Molecular kinetic simulation; Molecular processes in life science; Renewable energy; Natural products; Probe Materials (inorganic, organic, and biological); and Pharmaceuticals.
Attending and present at the Conference, representatives of University of Phan Thiet were Dr. Nguyen Minh Tam – Vice-Dean in charge of Faculty of Basic Sciences, who is a member of the Local Organizing Committee and MSc. Vo Duc Tu Duy – Specialist in Scientific Management and International Cooperation Office.

This conference has created an opportunity for international and Vietnamese scientists to maintain existing multidisciplinary cooperation networks, as well as initiate new networks. The Conference also helps young Vietnamese scientists to find opportunities, learn experiences, and improve their own professional capacity.
The next conference is expected to take place in Kobe (Japan) in 2024
