The 12th Triennial Congress of the World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists in Vancouver (WATOC 2020), August 16-21, is currently proceeding as planned.
The WATOC 2020 Organizing Committee is continuously monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 and its potential impact on travel to Vancouver. WATOC 2020 will be following the guidelines from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and currently believes that we will be able to move forward with a successful conference. We are working with the organizers and venue on additional measures to ensure the health and well-being of our conference attendees/presenters, exhibitors, volunteers, and the Vancouver community.
In the event of any changes to the conference status, the WATOC 2020 Organizing Committee will communicate immediately to all attendees through email and the WATOC 2020 website.
