The field of mathematical chemistry started with the pure and memorable activities of Alireza Ashrafi in Iran. One of the most important factors in the rapid expansion of this branch
of science in Iran, which intensified almost since 2003, has been the regular holding of mathematical chemistry conferences in Iran which were Iranian version of MCC conferences in Europe. One of the prominent features of Ashrafi was his active and effective presence in international scientific communication and diplomacy, and at the same time helding international conference on mathematical chemistry in Iran. With his invitation, many scientists from all over the world came to Iran and scientific diplomacy in his field of expertise became popular in the real sense. The mathematical chemistry conferences in Iran were a series of academic conferences that focus on the intersection of mathematics and chemistry. These conferences have been held annually since 2005 and were organized by prominent Iranian mathematicians and chemists, including Alireza Ashrafi and Ali Iranmanesh. The conferences brought together researchers, professors, and students from Iran and around the world to discuss topics such as chemical graphs, topological indices, and mathematical modeling of chemical
systems. These conferences have helped to promote the development of mathematical chemistry
in Iran and have facilitated collaborations between Iranian and international researchers. The conferences have also produced numerous publications in top scientific journals and have helped to establish Iran as a leading country in the field of mathematical chemistry.
