International Congress of Theoretical Chemists of Latin Expression

CHITEL, or QUITEL, is a historical conference devoted to theoretical chemistry. The XLVth edition of this conference will be held in Montréal, Canada from August 25 to 30, 2019, at Concordia University.

Founded in 1969 by Pullmann and Del Re, this conference is an annual meeting to promote collaboration and friendship among Theoretical Chemists of Latin-speaking countries. In the early years of the conference, European researchers were the main contributors. Afterwards, the Latin American community made an important contribution to the annual organization of this event. 

We are honored to organize this meeting for the first time in North America. We are looking forward to seeing you in Montreal, Organizing Committee of CHITEL/QUITEL 2019.


The conference was held in Quartier Concordia (Sir George Williams Campus) situated in downtown Montréal, in the new and prestigious John Molson Building.
