Computational Chemistry Day (CCD) is an international scientific conference held in Zagreb (Croatia, EU) intended for scientists who develop and apply methods of computational chemistry using High-Performance Computing (HPC) and/or High-Throughput Computing (HTC). The meeting is open for diverse approaches, both static and dynamic, in ordered and disordered phases, from molecular mechanics to advanced quantum chemical methods, and for a wide scope of research subjects, including reaction mechanisms, quest for new drugs and materials and rationalization of physico-chemical properties.


The conference is organized by the Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI), the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science (DC-FS), and the Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry of the University in Zagreb (FPB). Additional support is provided by the Croatian Chemical Society and the University Computing Centre – Srce.

The conference was organized for the first time in 2018 and has been held once a year since then (with a break due to the COVID-19 pandemic). Scientific results are presented in the form of lectures and posters. The working language of the conference is English.

There is no registration fee for the conference. However, please register your attendance (even if you are not completely sure will you be able to participate).
