The Brazilian Symposium on Theoretical Chemistry (SBQT) in its seventeenth edition in 2015 is turning 34 years of existence. The success saw in previous meetings endorses the fact that this event becomes progressively the largest instance, national and in Latin America, expressions of Theoretical Chemistry Community, surpassing even the language barrier of the American region.
The success of the SBQT lies in the fact that this event allows a large and direct articulation of research groups in Physics, Chemistry and Biological areas optimizing efforts to develop theoretical and computational methods of common interest and to use and improve experimental known techniques in the country searching a complete and better understanding of problems in Modern Chemistry.
The Theoretical Chemistry, before seen as a purely academic area of interest, was recognized with great importance in the development of Chemical of the XXI Century. In this last decade, multiplied the number of courses, as in undergraduate level as in Graduation and Pos Graduation degree in all country.
Nowadays, Theoretical Chemistry in Brazil includes several specific areas of contributions such as Quantum Chemistry, Atomic and Molecular Dynamics, Computer Simulation of Liquids and Solids Systems, Molecular Modeling of Biological Interest and Technological, Catalysis Chemistry, Physical Chemistry Organic, and others.
In this context, SBQT’s contributions to the development of the area in the country are undeniable. Therefore, in this Symposium as well as in previous, the programming has a diverse character looking especially for different lines of existing research in Theoretical Chemistry Community in the country.
The 18th edition of SBQT will be held in the historic city of Pirenópolis (GO), taking another audacious leap out of the Southeast region to the internal of Brazil. Note that this Symposium will take place at 50 km from the city of Anapolis (GO), which is the second largest center of pharmaceutical and agricultural industry in South America.
This action solidifies SBQT as a national important event, both for the regularity as the geographic and scientific scope. In the general context, that character aims to empower and train specialized staff in chemistry as well as facilitate the exchange between the various groups of national research to industry productive and also establish goals of the Federal Government for the next decades in CT&I.
