Background

It is a great tradition to share information among scientists. Since we strongly believe in this principle, in 2015, we started the Virtual Winter School of Computational Chemistry initiative.

With the Internet as basic tool, sharing information is today easier than ever. Already in the 90’s, Steven Bachrach had the idea of running a virtual computational chemistry conference (ECCC, Electronic Conference on Computational Chemistry) and Henry Rzepa followed it up with ECTOC (Electronic Conference on Trends in Organic Chemistry, all of which are still online at http://www.ch.ic.ac.uk/ectoc/). These were made to share information among (computational and theoretical) chemists using media apart from regular conferences.
