       VIII Girona Seminar on Aromaticity: Basics and Applications
               Girona (Catalonia, Spain), 7-10 July 2008


The Girona Seminars have been taken place in the historic town of Girona
every two years since back to 1993, with the aim of bringing together, in
a beautiful environment and in an informal and friendly atmosphere, young
and senior scientists. The forthcoming VIII edition will be specially 
devoted to the recent developments and applications of Quantum Chemistry
for the analysis and quantification of one of the most controversial 
classical concepts of chemistry: the aromaticity. Furthermore, following 
the tradition of this conference, other aspects of Quantum, Theoretical and
Mathematical Chemistry such as Density Functional Theory, Electron 
Distribution and Chemical Bonding or Photochemistry will be covered as well.
