Subject: 06.04.05 Chemical Reactivity Symposium, Brussels, Belgium
Chemical Reactivity Symposium, Brussels, April 5-7, 2006

A Three Day International Symposium will be held on (Theoretical Aspects
of) of "Chemical Reactivity", at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels,
Belgium, from April 5 to 7, 2006.

This Symposium is organized under the auspices of the Fund for Scientific
Research Flanders and the International Solvay Institutes for Physics and

The aim of the conference is to give the audience an impression of
theoretical aspects of chemical reactivity, as it can now be studied
starting from the electronic structure of atoms, molecules,... using a
variety of quantum mechanical methodologies. Both more fundamental and
applied aspects (wave function vs. DFT reactivity descriptors, dynamics,
aromaticity, organic and inorganic reactions, biosystems, zeolites, ...)
will be addressed. For this purpose 13 internationally renowned speakers
will deliver invited talks (40 minutes each) on various
approaches/applications. Contributed lectures will be given by a selected
number of foreign participants and representatives of a number of Belgian
research groups. A poster session will give ample space and time for
presentation of research results by all other participants.

The invited speakers (all confirmed) are :

P. W. Ayers (McMaster University Hamilton, Ontario, Canada )
P. K. Chattaraj ( Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India)
D. A. Dixon ( The University of Alabama ,Tuscaloosa, USA)
W. Domcke (Lehrstuhl fr Theoretische Chemie, Garching, Germany)
P. W. Fowler ( University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK)
J. Hutter (Universitt Zrich, Zrich, Switzerland)
J.M.L. Martin (Weizmann Institute of Science, Rechovot, Israel)
R. G. Parr ( University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, USA)
U. Rthlisberger (Ecole Polytechnique Federale, Lausanne,Switzerland)
M. Sol ( Universitat de Girona, Girona, Spain)
M. Sprik ( University of Cambridge, United Kingdom )
R.A. van Santen (Eindhoven Technical University,The Netherlands )
P. von Rague Schleyer ( University of Georgia, Athens, USA)
