Southeastern Theoretical Chemistry Association Meeting

May 18-19, 2018

at Louisiana State University


About SETCA:  The Southeastern Theoretical Chemistry Association (SETCA) is a loose organization of theoretical and computational chemists from across the Southeastern United States. Since its inception in 1970 by Prof. Bruno Linder of Florida State University, its primary function has been an annual conference to give faculty, students, and postdoctoral associates an opportunity to present their most recent research results.

It is especially exciting for the Center for Computation and Technology at LSU to be welcoming such a talented and diverse group of computational chemists. SETCA has a longstanding tradition of excellence in bringing together these communities to address the widespread challenges of computational chemists, and we at LSU are looking forward to continuing this tradition.
