About DAE-CCS-2019

The first DAE-CCS symposium is being organized by Chemical Engineering Group, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Trombay, Mumbai, India, during November 7-9, 2019. The symposium is supported by the Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS), Department of Atomic Energy (DAE). The field of computational chemistry is growing rapidly with the continuing development of computer power, new and robust algorithms, and the availability of scalable software. Computer simulations provide a direct route to generate macroscopic properties of molecular systems of experimental interest through microscopic information. Today computational chemistry can provide useful estimates of the properties and behavior of materials even before they have been synthesized and evaluated through experiments. The purpose of the symposium is to create a platform for scientist and engineers, especially to the young researchers for an effective interaction among those engaged in research in the area of computational chemistry , as it will be attended by eminent scientists and engineers from national laboratories, universities and research institutes across India.

Scope of Symposium

The following topics would be covered in the symposium:
  1. Fundamental studies on structures, thermodynamics and transport properties
  2. Metal ion and Isotope separation
  3. Water purification
  4. Reaction mechanism and catalysis
  5. Nanomaterials and polymers
  6. Hydrogen and other gas storage materials
  7. Chemical biology
  8. Radiation damage in materials

    The scientific programme of the symposium will include invited talks by eminent scientists from India. The invited talks will encompass basic studies and applications and will address various advanced topics which include novel solvent design, high capacity nanoadsorbents, robust membranes for desalination and fuel cell, identification of composition of glass for vitrification, high capacity hydrogen storage materials, mechanistic pathway of enzyme catalyzed reaction, interaction of radiation with matter and many more. Contributed papers will be presented in poster sessions. Further, the best poster presentations will be selected for the awards. Abstract of the contributed papers will be peer reviewed prior to their inclusion in the symposium proceedings. Limited number of selected papers will be considered for publication in journals of international reputation. The prior intimation will be given to authors about the selection of their contributions for consideration of journal publication.
