The Seventh Congress of the
International Society for Theoretical
Chemical Physics (ISTCP-VII) took place on September 2-8, 2011 at
Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan.
ISTCP-VII Proceedings have been published in special issues of
International Journal of Quantum Chemistry.
ISTCP-VII has been successfully completed. We thank all the people who have
contributed to and/or supported ISTCP-VII.
Fujitsu Poster Prize winners were announced.
Photos were uploaded.
Next ISTCP Congress (ISTCP-VIII) will be held in 2013 in Budapest, Hungary.
A Congress is organized by ISTCP every three years.
A total of 375 participants from 36 countries attended the last Congress.
The venues of the past Congresses have been:

The main theme of this Congress "theoretical chemical physics"
has recently attracted considerable attention owing to the recent developments
in theoretical methodologies and advances in computer technologies
such as massive parallel computers.
Theoretical chemical physics is an indispensable means to carry out
This Congress will cover not only theoretical methodologies in
quantum chemistry, dynamics, and statistical mechanics but also the
applications of theoretical chemical physics to material science,
biochemistry, and biophysics.
This Congress will offer an excellent opportunity to present cutting-edge
research and exchange ideas.
