 Molecular Interactions - Bringing Chemistry to Life
 May 15th - 19th, 2006, Bozen, Italy

The Beilstein workshops address contemporary issues in the chemical and 
related sciences by employing an interdisciplinary approach. Scientists
from a wide range of areas  often outside chemistry  are invited to
present aspects of their work for discussion with the aim of not only to 
advance science, but also, to enhance interdisciplinary communication.

The workshop will take place in the historic Hotel Schloss Korb. 
The setting and the limited number of participants (ca. 50-60), 
provide a very convivial atmosphere for the ready exchange of thoughts 
and ideas.

Please find further general information, the scientific program, the 
first circular and the registration form on our web site:

Places at the workshop are limited and will be allocated on a first-come

basis. Please feel free to pass on the information to colleagues whom you 
think would also be interested in attending.

 We would be delighted to see you in Bozen.
