Foundations of Molecular Modeling and Simulation (FOMMS) is an international conference showcasing the applications and theory of computational quantum chemistry, molecular science, and engineering simulation. The motivation for this conference is the continual need for precise control of product properties, the accurate prediction of physical properties, and the development of a fundamental understanding of the chemical processes that allow the efficient creation of new products that meet specific marketplace demands. Theoretical and algorithmic advances along with modern computing technology routinely leads companies to capture the cash value of truly sustainable, far-reaching competitive advantage. A molecular-level understanding of these chemical processes lead to model mechanisms that are robust, pertinent, scalable, and most importantly, integratable across statistical, chemical, and engineering technologies. The future for these methods is extremely bright as they continue to prove their value to the chemical and chemical-related industries in the coming decade.
