Subject: 08.10.31 17th Conference on Current Trends in Computational Chemistry, Jackson, MS
We are pleased to announce and to invite you to attend the 17th Conference 
on Current Trends in Computational Chemistry (CCTCC). This symposium, 
organized by Jackson State University, covers all areas of computational 
chemistry as well as quantum chemistry. This year the 17th CCTCC will be 
held at the Hilton Jackson Hotel, Jackson, Mississippi on October 31 - 
November 1, 2008. A banquet is scheduled for the Saturday evening and a 
dinner and reception for Friday.

Flyer: (1.8mb)

The format consists of a series of (invited) plenary lectures and poster 
presentations on Friday and Saturday covering applications as well as 
theory. As suggested by Professor Pople, several years ago we inaugurated 
a tradition for the second decade of our conferences. Starting with the 
11th CCTCC each meeting is featuring a talk named after eminent 
computational chemists. This year the seventh presentation in this series 
will be given by Professor William A. Lester, Jr from the University of 
California, Berkeley.

List of invited speakers:
Maria Barysz, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Poland
Tim Clark, Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg 
Ernest R. Davidson, University of Washington
Magdolna Hargittai, Budapest University of Technology and Economics
So Hirata, University of Florida
Walter Kohn, University of California, Santa Barbara
William A. Lester, University of California, Berkeley

We are planning to publish extended abstracts (up to four pages each) 
of all invited talks and poster presentations. For more information and
