Molecular Modelling 2021 Conference

Australasia’s premier molecular modelling conference will be held at Translational Research Institute, Brisbane City of Queensland, Australia. This meeting will be the latest in MM series of hybrid conference organised by the Association of Molecular Modellers of Australasia (AMMA) after a break of a year due to COVID-19 pandemic. ​

We are looking forward to seeing Australian colleagues face-to-face in Brisbane, but are well aware that the COVID-19 situation will still likely make it difficult for international friends to travel, thus the meeting will be held in a hybrid format allowing online participation. We are extremely grateful to the AMMA Organizing Committee (
