Central Indiana Computational Chemistry Christmas Luncheon
CICCCL (pronounced "chickle") is an annual luncheon held in Indianapolis to celebrate fellowship and good cheer among past and present scientists interested in computational chemistry. The first CICCCL was organized by Dr. Don Boyd in 1995. It proved very popular. The luncheons were organized by Don for almost 20 years. Over the years, attendees at the luncheons came from the following companies and educational institutions: Eli Lilly and Company, Dow AgroSciences, Indiana University - Purdue University - Indianapolis (IUPUI), Indiana University - Bloomington (IUB), Butler University, Marian University, and Franklin College. Retirees and independent consultants also attend. Back in the 1990s, generous and competitive companies that were developing and selling software for the computational chemistry market were glad to donate gifts for distribution at the annual holiday event.
In 2016 Joe Klimkowski and Doug Johnson, both retired from Lilly, assumed organizational leadership of the luncheons.
