251st ACS National Meeting & Exposition




March 13th – 17th, 2016 | San Diego, CA

"ACS Meetings organizes two of the most respected scientific meetings in the world. Our National Meetings offer scientific professionals a legitimate platform to present, publish, discuss and exhibit the most exciting research discoveries and technologies in chemistry and its related disciplines. Everyone who attends an ACS National Meeting & Exposition walks away with a greater understanding of the role chemistry plays in the global economy, health, safety, and the environment and is given the unique opportunity to exchange ideas with leading experts in the field. Expositions at the national meetings give attendees the chance to meet more than 250 exhibitors, many of whom are showcasing new technological developments."


Find us at booth #1205!

In honour of the theme of this year's Spring National Meeting, "Computers in Chemistry", we will be hosting our own booth (#1205) at the American Chemical Society's National Meeting & Exposition, this March in San Diego, CA.

Our goal is to display our optimized systems for molecular dynamics packages, such as NAMD, GROMACS, and LAMMPS as well as to learn what we can do to better tailor our systems to the needs of those in computational chemistry and biology.

Make sure to add us to your ExpoPlanner and swing by our booth to talk to us about your work and what we can do to meet your computing needs!

Dr. Don Kinghorn

Don is our resident scientist with 20+ years in HPC and scientific computing, nurtured by his educations background (BA in Mathematics/Chemistry and a PhD in Theoretical Chemistry). 

His research in Matrix Calculus applied to quantum chemistry was computationally demanding and evolved at the time of the PC "revolution" and the birth of Linux.

Don will be at our booth, ready and willing, to answer any questions you might have!
