Each speaker should plan to bring their presentations on a USB flash drive or similar source. For each session a laptop and a pointer will be provided, and we encourage you to use the provided computers. Your presentation file should then preferibly be in PDF (PPT format is also accepted under your responsibility). If you would like to show a movie in your presentation, please double-check the file in advance.

You are encouraged to copy your presentation files onto the supplied laptop before your session starts. If you prefer to use your own laptop, you need to bring any adaptors necessary to connect to the VGA projector cable provided. International visitors should bring adapters for European electrical outlets type F.


Maximum poster measurements are 841 x 1189 mm, or approximately the A0 size, in portrait format. Landscape poster walls may not be available. Each registered participant can present only one poster at the meeting.

All presenters of posters can mount their papers on Tuesday 23 morning and should remove before closing the conference on Friday 26.


There will be 6 awards to best poster presentations, sponsored by the outstanding Journal of Computational Chemistry and International Journal of Quantum Chemistry, consisting in a Wiley book voucher of 200$ and a certificate of distinction.

The outstanding journal Computation (ISSN 2079-3197; by MDPI) will support an award to the best contributed talk. It will consist on a 250 CHF award, as well as a certificate of distinction, for each of the parallel sessions for contributed talks.


The proceedings of the conference will be published in a Special Issue of the journal 'Computation' (ISSN 2079-3197; by MDPI) for which publications fees (350 CHF) will be generously waived. To benefit from that, at least one of the authors should have registered and attended the DFT'19 conference.

All participants are invited to contribute to this Special Issue. Papers may report on original research, discuss methodological aspects, present new applications, and review the current state-of-the-art, or offer perspectives or future prospects for the field. The papers will undergo a strict peer-review process and when accepted be published to widely disseminate their contents and results.

The Guest Editors of that Special Issue will guarantee the quality of the whole process. Deadline for submission: 31 October 2019.
