MERCURY Conference

MERCURY log with three mountains and two cloudsThe consortium, known as the Molecular Education and Research Consortium in Undergraduate computational chemistRY (MERCURY) was founded in 2001 with the goal of establishing research collaboration among seven computational chemistry faculty from primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs). The consortium members share NSF-funded computational facilities and meet at an annual MERCURY conference to network and present their research.

Mercury Consortium Conference 

Monday, July 15 - Tuesday, July 16th - MOLSSI Workshop

Wednesday, July 17th - Friday, July 19th - MERCURY Consortium Conference

The 2024 annual MERCURY Conference for undergraduate computational chemistry will be held the week of July 15, 2024. MERCURY is delighted to have Hrant Hratchian, dean for Graduate Education at UC Merced, hosting the meeting in the heart of California's Central Valley.


MOLSSI: The Molecular Sciences Software Institute Workshop

We will have six outstanding speakers, an undergraduate poster session and evening social networking events. The conference will be preceded by a MOLSSI workshop. The conference is an excellent forum for undergraduates to present their work and to learn from experts in the field, allowing them to put their own research into perspective. It is equally valuable as a networking event for faculty working with undergraduates. Undergraduates from all types of institutions are invited to come present their work.
