On June 2 – 4, 2022, for the first time in more than ten years, the Midwest Theoretical Chemistry Conference (MWTCC) returns to the Ohio State University. The 52nd MWTCC will bring together theoretical and computational chemists from around the Midwest region to share their latest research.

The MWTCC program will include one keynote and four invited talks, a large number of contributed talks from faculty, postdocs and students, a banquet, and two lively poster sessions. We hope you share our excitement to resume the MWTCC tradition after postponements forced by the pandemic. By soliciting support from within Ohio State and from the sponsors listed below, we have kept the registration fees low and can offer single occupancy rooms in air conditioned dorms for $31/night. We will maintain safety standards dictated by conditions prevailing at the time of the conference.


Final version of the MWTCC 2022 program containing the parking instructions, campus map, final schedule of talks, complete list of poster presenters, submitted abstracts, and list of participants is available here.

The poster easels adjust in height from 25″ – 72″ and the poster boards are 40″ x 60″. See the program for poster easel assignments.

Ohio State University is located in an urban area north of the downtown Columbus, Ohio. The 52nd MWTCC will take place in the northern part of the OSU campus, in a close proximity to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.


For information about parking see the MWTCC program.


OSU campus is conveniently located just about 15 minute drive from the John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH). The Columbus airport offers direct flights to almost all major cities in the US. Taxi and ride share services from the airport to the OSU campus are available for participants who choose to travel by plane.

Conference venues:

The poster sessions will be organized on Thursday, June 2, in the lobby of the Physics Research Building (PRB).

All talks (contributed, invited, and keynote) will take place in the Evans Laboratory Building room 1008.

The MWTCC conference banquet will take place at the Blackwell Inn, which is located about 15 minutes by foot from the conference room in the Evans Laboratory Building.

Lodging at the OSU campus dorm complex:

Guests should check in at the Jones Tower (map) front desk. They may arrive any time after 9:00 am on June 2. Check-out time is 11:00 am on Sunday, June 4.
