COSMO-RS-Symposium 2018

5th-COSMO-RS-Symposium (March 6-8, 2018)

The last COSMO-RS Symposium in 2015 was a great success with many interesting talks and fruitful discussions. In a continued effort to provide a regular platform for scientific exchange, we are now planning the 5th COSMO-RS Symposium.
We welcome all people who are interested in the COSMO-RS methodology with all of its extensions, including long-term users, fresh users, as well as newcomers. As usual, it will be an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences in the context of COSMO-RS, or just to learn the basics from our team as well as from other users.
