The 3rd International Conference on the Foundations of Molecular Modeling and Simulation (FOMMS), was held July 9th - 14th, 2006. FOMMS 2006 is the third FOMMS which is a scientific meeting balanced between the methods of quantum mechanics, atomistic simulation, mesoscale methods and beyond, with application areas in chemistry, biology, and materials. FOMMS is the only focused conference that brings together such a broad modeling community and emphasizes integration from atomistic to meso- & macro-scale modeling. This talk will highlight key points from the conference.
