The 17th annual MERCURY Conference for undergraduate computational chemistry will be held July 20-22, 2017 at Furman University in Greenville, SC. Mainstays of the conference include six speakers who present excellent talks that provide background and specific findings in their respective fields, plus an undergraduate poster session and evening social networking events. This year includes a post-conference MolSSI workshop on the afternoon of Saturday, July 22nd and morning of Sunday, July 23rd. The conference is an excellent forum for undergraduates to present their work and to learn from experts in the field, allowing them to put their own research into perspective. It is equally valuable as a networking event for faculty working with undergraduates. Undergraduates from all types of institutions are invited to come present their work. Students who have graduated from college and have not begun their graduate work are also invited to present. Graduate students and postdoctoral associates may attend and see how professors work effectively with undergraduate research students.

Conference accommodations for students are double-occupancy dorm rooms with shared baths, linens and AC. If students need single occupancy rooms, they need to provide a justification in the registration form. We are able to provide single-occupancy rooms for faculty and people with special needs if requested. You will need to bring your own toiletries. If you would prefer to stay off-campus, please contact us if you need recommendations.

For MolSSI workshop attendees, housing and meals are available from 2PM on Saturday, July 22nd to 1PM on Sunday, July 23rd. For other attendees, both housing and meals will be provided from 2PM on Thursday, July 20th to 2PM on Saturday, July 22nd. Attendees who need to arrive early or stay later have to make special arrangements. Please contact us for recommendations.
