The Physical, Theoretical and Computational Chemistry (PTC) subject division is hosting a series of online seminars in the field of physical, theoretical, and computational chemistry.
Following in the footsteps of the Global Inorganic Discussion Weekdays (GIDW), we proposed a similar series focused on Physical, Theoretical, and Computational (PTC) Chemistry. The PTC seminar series aims to bring these chemistry communities together for biweekly seminars from individuals at different career levels, and from academia, government, and industry.
This one-hour seminar is hosted biweekly on Tuesdays at 2:00 pm ET.
- Once you have registered for the symposium series, you will receive a unique link to access the webinar. Please do not distribute this link.
- Registration will be confirmed for upcoming sessions between September 22, 2020 to January 26, 2020. Should the series be extended you will be notified by email.

The seminars are intended to represent the full diversity of the physical, theoretical, and computational chemistry community. This includes gender, ethnicity, location, type of institution, and career stage. Participants are encouraged to contact the organizers to address concerns about ways in which underrepresented groups are excluded or if accommodations are required.
All participants are required to treat each other and the speakers respectfully. This includes during the seminars, on the mailing list, and on the slack channel. Rude or inappropriate language will not be tolerated.
At the discretion of the speaker, some seminars will be recorded by the CSC and will be available for a period of time after the seminar. No other recordings or screenshots should be made of the seminars unless explicit permission is given by the speaker.
