Odile Eisenstein holds a Professor II position at the CTCC, where she is promoting fruitful collaborations between the theoretical and experimental groups at the UiO Chemistry Department. On the 2nd of September, Odile was awarded with the University of Oslo honorary doctorate for her outstanding contribution to the field of Computational Chemistry. With the aim of celebrating this award, I organized a symposium on her honor together with Professor Mats Tilset (CTCC@UiO). This special event was kept secret until the last moment and given to Odile as a surprise gift. The symposium was held at the Norwegian Academy of Sciences and Letters on the 3rd of September. Following the spirit of Odile’s work, the symposium was based on an international blend of theoretical and experimental speakers from the fields of organometallic chemistry and catalysis. These included professors Robin Perutz (UK), Julia Contreras-Garcia (France), Agustí Lledós (Spain), Stuart Macgregor (UK) and Feliu Maseras (Spain). The topics covered included new NMR techniques, non-covalent interactions, electronic structure analysis and computational homogeneous catalysis. All speakers and attendants were invited to a banquet at the Academy, closing the symposium.
