To encourage young molecular modellers at the beginning of their careers, the MGMS invites PhD students who wish to present their work on any aspect of computational chemistry, cheminformatics, or computational biology at the 2018 Young Modellers’ Forum. Other members of the modelling community are are strongly encouraged to attend this event as it is your opportunity to see these talented young modellers and to assist us in the evaluation of the prizes. There is also the chance to discuss the talks afterwards in the pub!

  • This year there will be oral presentations and posters during the day, so there will be plenty to see and hear!
  • Prizes will be awarded to the best presentations. Take a look at the past prize winners of the YMF.
  • Lightning Talks: Each of the poster presenters will be given 2 minutes (and one slide) to promote their poster and try to tempt people to come and read it!
