Subject: 06.05.28 Workshop on Computational Chemistry and Its Applications, Reading, UK
            ICCS 2006 : "Advancing Science through Computation"   

            Workshop on
            Computational Chemistry and Its Applications
            part of
            The International Conference on Computational Science
            May 28-31, 2006, 

            University of Reading
            Description of Workshop 
Computational chemistry has opened a world of new possibilities. It is
widely applied in chemical and interdisciplinary research. 

The major goals of this workshop are to highlight the latest scientific
advances within the broad field of computational chemistry in academia,
industry and society. This workshop will provide the opportunity for
researchers coming from corners of the world to be on a single platform
for discussion, exchanging ideas and developing collaborations. 

It will also be a suitable platform for researchers from different
fields to meet so that ideas for new interdisciplinary research can
Topics will include aspects of computational chemistry such as (but are
not limited to): 

    (i) Methods 
            Ab initio, semiempirical, force fields, density functional 

    (ii) Applications 
            Kinetics, reaction mechanisms, catalysis, molecular
            properties, conformational analysis, thermodynamics, 

    (iii) Other research involving computational chemistry 

    (iv) Interdisciplinary computational research involving chemistry
         will be specially invited.
