CMST COST Action D37
Grid Computing in Chemistry: GRIDCHEM

The main objective of the Action is to facilitate the creation and use of distributed computing infrastructures ("Grids") in chemistry with the goal of bringing computer modelling and simulation in chemistry to new frontiers in complexity and to a new regime of time-to-solution.

This will stimulate innovation in the creation and handling of chemical knowledge. The areas of application cover traditional chemistry, materials science, molecular biology and environmental chemistry. The presence of chemistry on the Grid will also have an impact on the development of middleware and the design and layout of Grid infrastructures.

Enabling and accelerating the transition of researchers to the "infrastructure of computational science of the 21st century" will make European computational chemistry more competitive.
