Subject: 06.04.19 MOLECULAR MODELLING 2006 (MM2006) - 2nd CALL, PERTH, AUSTRALIA,

We are pleased to announce that Molecular Modelling 2006 (MM2006) will
be held in Perth, Australia from Wednesday 19 until Saturday 22 of April
2006 at Curtin University of Technology.

These series of meetings are held every 18-24 months and aim to bring
together the modelling community in Australia, New Zealand, the
Asia-Pacific region and other parts of the world. The members of the
organising committee are Ricardo Mancera (chair), Julian Gale, Andrew
Rohl, Mark Spackman and Sue Berners-Price. The Conference Secretary is
Kate Wright.

MM2006 will cover molecular modelling in the life and physical sciences.
Abstracts are invited for both oral and poster contributions in the
broad areas of biomolecular modelling (protein and macromolecular
modelling, ligand- and structure-based drug design and general molecular
modelling), computational chemistry (ab initio, DFT and QM/MM methods)
and materials modelling (condensed matter and polymers).

Abstracts should be no longer than one page long and submitted by e-mail
as Word or RTF documents to the Conference Secretariat.  Abstracts
should include a title, names of authors and their affiliations, summary
of the work presented and references.  Figures may be included within
the one-page limit, but reproduction will be done in black and white

The proceedings of the meeting will be published in a special issue of
the journal Molecular Simulation.  Participants of the meeting will be
invited to submit papers, which will undergo peer review.

In keeping with previous conference formats, we will have a number of
plenary speakers (mostly from overseas) as well as invited and
contributed presentations. We will also hold a poster session.  This is
the list of confirmed speakers so far:

Prof Alan Mark (University of Queensland)
Dr Mark Smythe (University of Queensland)
Prof Jill Gready (Australian National University)
Dr Renate Griffith (University of Newcastle)
Dr David Chalmers (Monash University)
Dr Brian Smith (Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research)
Dr Bret Church (University of New South Wales)
Dr Merridee Wouters (Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute)
Prof Peter Gill (Australian National University)
Prof Sean Smith (University of Queensland)
A/Prof Billy Todd (Swinburne University)
Dr Ian Snook (RMIT)
Dr Oliver Warschkow (University of Sydney)
Dr Chandra Verma (Bioinformatics Institute, Singapore)
Prof Kyoung Tai No (Yonsei University, Korea)
Dr Jed Pitera (IBM Almaden Research Centre, USA)
Prof Brian Shoichet (University of California, San Francisco, USA)
Dr Jonathan Essex (University of Southampton, UK)
Prof Alessandro Laio (ETH Zurich, Switzerland)
Prof Simon Phillpot (University of Florida, USA)

We will be offering a number of student bursaries that will cover the
registration fee and provide partial reimbursemente of travel expenses.
Between 2 and 3 of these bursaries will be sponsored by Accelrys for
work that is being carried out using any of their suites of molecular
modelling softwares.

The organising committee would like to invite you to register for this
meeting.  The conference website has all appropriate forms for
registration and application for student bursaries, as well as
information about abstract submission.  Please point your browsers to:

Abstract submission deadline:          Friday 16 December 2005
