Prof. Andrey A. Fokin is Full Professor and Head of the Department of Organic Chemistry and Technology at National Technical University "Igor Sikorsky Kiyv Polytechnic Institute" (Ukraine). He has been a visiting professor at the Universities of Minnesota and Georgia (USA) as well as in Gießen (Germany). His research mostly concentrates on the combination of computational and experimental studies with applications in organic, physical-organic, medical, agricultural chemistry and nanotechnology.

Dr. Marina Sekutor is senior research associate in the Division of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry at the Ruder Boskovic Institute (Zagreb, Croatia). She was a postdoctoral Alexander-von-Humboldt fellow in the group of Prof. Schreiner at the Justus Liebig University Giessen (Germany) and a visiting researcher at the University of Maryland (USA). Her research interests include supramolecular host-guest chemistry of polycyclic compounds and the use of diamondoid derivatives in materials science.

Prof. Peter R. Schreiner is Professor of Organic Chemistry and Liebig-Chair at the Institute of Organic Chemistry at Justus Liebig University Giessen (Germany). His research interests include organic reaction dynamics and reactive intermediates, quantum mechanical tunneling as well as London dispersion interactions as probed in the realm of nanodiamonds and organocatalysis. He currently serves as an Editor for the Journal of Computational Chemistry, WIRES - Computational Molecular Sciences, and the Beilstein Journal of Organic Chemistry.
