******************* SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT ******************* Sixth International Congress of the INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR THEORETICAL CHEMICAL PHYSICS July 19-24, 2008 University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada The ISTCP-VI website (http://www.chem.ubc.ca/istcp6) has been open for registration, abstract submission, and hotel booking. In the coming weeks, please visit the ISTCP-VI website for latest updates. ------------ Dear Colleague, The Sixth Congress of the International Society for Theoretical Chemical Physics (ISTCP-VI) (http://www.chem.ubc.ca/istcp6) will be held on July 19-24, 2008 in the beautiful campus of the University of British Columbia (UBC) at Vancouver, BC, Canada. The history of ISTCP and its Congresses is available at the following link: http://www.chem.ubc.ca/istcp6/ISTCPstory.htm. Held every three years, ISTCP Congresses continue the tradition of showcasing the achievements and advances in all areas of theoretical chemical physics, with special emphasis on the interaction between experimental and theoretical physical chemistry, chemical physics, and materials and life sciences. The scope of ISTCP-VI will cover a broad range of topics that include Biophysical/Medical Simulations, Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Chemistry, Density-Functional Theory, Coupled Clusters, Quantum Monte Carlo, Quantum/Classical Dynamics, Nanosystems, Coherent Control, Ultra-cold Chemistry, AttoScience, and Novel Materials. As usual, the proceedings of the Congress will be published in the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry (IJQC) and Progress in Theoretical Chemistry and Physics (PTCP). Research papers will appear in IJQC (Wiley) while review papers will appear in PTCP (a book series published by Springer). With extensive advertising all over the world, we anticipate the total number of participants to ISTCP-VI to reach 350. This will definitely be a wonderful opportunity to know the latest cutting- edge advances in theoretical chemical physics and to network with your colleagues worldwide. Several members of the Honorary Board of Directors of ISTCP (which includes 4 Nobel Laureates and 4 Wolf Prize Awardees) have expressed their intention to attend the Congress. It is our great pleasure to invite you to join us for a five-day scientific fest at UBC during ISTCP-VI. If you would like to attend ISTCP-VI, please first register at <http://www2.bri.nrc.ca/ccb/istcp6/registration.php> in the "Participant" role. Then, submit your abstract at your earliest convenience at <http://www2.bri.nrc.ca/ccb/istcp6/abstract.php>. More than one abstract can be submitted. Submitted abstracts can be revised before July 11, 2008, when all abstracts will be printed on paper. If you would like to give a contributed talk, please submit your abstract as early as possible. Then, send a request for an oral presentation to <istcp6 . chem.ubc.ca>. The Congress Chair will pass your request to pertinent Symposium Organizers for consideration. If you want to pay your registration fee (in Canadian dollars) via wire transfer, please following the instruction below: <http://www.chem.ubc.ca/istcp6/Wire-Transfer-Instruction.pdf>. If you need an entry visa into Canada, please send the Congress Chair <istcp6 . chem.ubc.ca> an email request for an invitation letter as soon as possible.

Brandas (Co-chair, President of ISTCP, Sweden) Jean Maruani (Co-chair, France) ------------ About Vancouver Vancouver is the largest city in Western Canada, located at the south- western corner of the province of British Columbia. Situated between the north-shore and coastal mountains and the edge of the Pacific ocean, Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in North America, and was recently ranked as "the world's most desirable place to live" in a survey of 127 cities performed by the Intelligence Unit of the magazine The Economist. It is also the hosting city of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The vibrant downtown core offers all the amenities of an international destination - from hundreds of restaurants and clubs through countless parks and recreation facilities to world-class sporting and entertainment events (including the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and the Canucks - the city's major league hockey team). Vancouver's natural surroundings offer limitless opportunities for outdoor pursuits, such as hiking and mountain biking in the Spring and Summer, and skiing at nearby Whistler-Blackcomb resort in Winter. We invite you to explore Vancouver and Beautiful British Columbia at the following web sites: - Tourism Vancouver (http://www.tourismvancouver.com) - Tourism BC (http://www.hellobc.com) ------------ About UBC Highly ranked among the world's best universities, the University of British Columbia holds an international reputation for excellence in advanced research and learning (http://www.ubc.ca/global/index.html). Only 30 minutes from the vibrant heart of downtown Vancouver, the spectacular UBC campus is a 'must-see' for any visitor of the world: snow-capped mountains can be seen meeting the ocean, and breathtaking vistas greet you around every corner. The UBC campus also boasts some of the city's best attractions and recreation facilities, including the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts (mainly music), the Museum of Anthropology, the UBC Botanical Garden, and endless opportunities to explore forested trails in the adjoining 763-hectare Pacific Spirit Regional Park.
