Mercury Consortium


July 23-25, 2015

Lewisburg, PA

The 14th annual MERCURY Conference for undergraduate computational chemistry will be held July 23-25, 2015 at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA.

Mainstays of the conference include six speakers who present excellent talks that provide background and specific findings in their respective fields, plus an undergraduate poster session and evening social networking events. This conference is an excellent forum for undergraduates to present their work and to learn from experts in the field, allowing them to put their own research into perspective. It is equally valuable as a networking event for faculty working with undergraduates. Undergraduates from all types of institutions are invited to come present their work. Students who have graduated from college and have not begun their graduate work are also invited to present. Graduate students and postdoctoral associates may attend and will have the opportunity to learn how professors work effectively with undergraduate research students.


This year's speakers will be:
