The World Association of Theoretical and Computational Chemists (WATOC) aims to promote the field of theoretical and computational chemistry and to advance the interactions between scientists working in this field worldwide.

WATOC holds triennial Congresses to promote scientific exchange.

The next congress will be WATOC 2025, to be held in Oslo from 22-27 June 2025 and is organised by Prof. Trygve Helgaker. The WATOC 2028 congress will be held in Merida, Mexico and will be organised by Profs. Gabriel Merino and Annia Galano.
