The goals of the TheMoSiA Federative Network are the following:

  • Support scientific animation in the theoretical chemistry and modeling field
  • Support national and international collaborations
  • Connect the academic and industrial worlds
  • Support training, in particular for recently graduated students
  • Create and maintain a communication tool for the scientific community

Call for proposals 2024 + committee elections

ThéMoSiA Congress

The TheMoSiA community meets every two years. The 2024 meeting will take place in Rouen from June 24th till the 28th

1998Villeneuve d’Ascq
1985Col de la Schlucht

The Gaston Berthier Prize

Gaston Berthier (1923-2009) was an early leader of the French Theoretical Chemistry community. Since 2012, the Gaston Berthier Prize is awarded every two years to a PhD thesis of outstanding quality in Theoretical Chemistry of Molecular Modeling. The awardee is invited to present his/her work during the ThéMoSiA Congress.

Support of Scientific meetings and new collaborations

The ThéMoSia network can grant financial support for events organized in France (meetings, workshops, summer schools) related to the network’s scientific interests. ThéMoSiA also supports new collaborations between French research groups that involve the transfer of new computing skills from one research group to the other. The call for applications usually opens every year in March.
