We are pleased to announce that the next CCG European UGM and Conference is returning to an "in-person" format and will take place on May 17-20 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. This is a 4-day event, consisting of workshops, scientific presentations, and a poster session as well as social activities including receptions and a conference dinner.

As usual, this will be an opportunity to meet with CCG staff (support scientists and developers), network with fellow researchers, and learn about the latest developments in MOE and in computational chemistry and biology generally, in a relaxed and convivial setting. REGISTRATION will open in December 2021.
