Dates have now been finalized for the various Symposia being organized for
the COMP Division of the ACS at the National Meeting in Dallas next Spring.

I will be organizing a 1.5-day symposium on the afternoon of March 31st and
all day on April 1st, entitled "Diverse Perspectives of Chemical Diversity."
Topics will include:
  - chemistry-space metrics (including fingerprints)
  - metric validation
  - diversity-related algorithms
  - use of diversity software for library design, pro's and con's
  - use of diversity software for other diversity-related tasks,
    pro's and con's

In keeping with recent tradition, the symposium program will be a mix of
invited and contributed papers.  If you would like to present a 30-minute
talk at this symposium, please send me an abstract AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so
that I can assemble a balanced program.  I fear that, with only 3 half-day
sessions, the program will be very crowded and I urge you to send your
abstracts as soon as possible.

Although a rough, e-mailed abstract will suffice for program-planning
purposes, please note that (according to ACS rules, not mine!) you MUST
send me 4 paper copies of a 150-word (max) abstract on the official ACS 
Abstract Form prior to October 20, 1997 (even though the meeting is not
until March/April 1998).  

I look forward to hearing from you!

A Symposium Sponsored by the Petroleum Chemistry Division
of the American Chemical Society, 215th ACS National Meeting

March 29 - April 3, 1998


        The focus of the symposium will be  to provide an update on recent
advances in the fundamentals and applications of deep heteroatom removal,
including metals, sulfur, nitrogen and oxygen from resids, fuels, chemicals
and gases.  Approaches based on catalytic and non-catalytic heteroatom
removal, including separation and adsorption will be considered.

        If you are interested in contributing a paper to this symposium,
please submit an abstract (on ACS form) to one of the organizers by October
1, 1997.  The abstract forms can be obtained from the organizers or can be
downloaded from the ACS WEB site at

The full text of a short manuscript (4-6 pages) will be due by November 1,
1997 and will be published in the Preprints of the ACS Petroleum Chemistry

How to Get an Abstract Form ?

ACS requires all the authors to submit an abstract on original ACS abstract
form to the organizers of ACS symposia. The Abstract form includes detailed
instructions for supplying camera-ready copy. It also includes tear-off
post cards, which the program chair uses to mail a confirmation of your

The original ACS abstract form can be obtained by any one of the following
ways.  The outcome using either method should be camera-ready copy for use
when printing an abstract book by ACS for each meeting.

1. The authors can use the ACS abstract form down-loaded from ACS meetings
web page from ACS meetings web page as folows:

2. Contact ACS Meetings Department by e-mail to request the original ACS
abstract form
(the hardcopy version) at the following address:

3. Call the ACS Meetings Department to request the original ACS abstract form
(the conventional hardcopy version) at the No:  1-800-227-5558 (press 9,
then 4)

4.  Contact the organizers to request an abstract form [During Sept
16-October 10, 1997, C. Song will be out of his office; please contact Ms.
Jackie Kunes at Penn State to request abstract form:  209 Academic Projects

ACS Division of Petroleum Chemistry publishes PREPRINTS volumes and
distributes them prior to National ACS Meetings to facilitate discussion of
papers. To insure high quality, papers are reviewed before publication.
The Session Chairman reviews the papers before accepting them for the
program.  The accepted papers are then submitted to the Managing Editor for
final review for conformance to PREPRINTS style and quality.  The final
edited copy is then prepared for publication by electronic typesetting.
All papers submitted must have three hard copies with one set of photo
quality figure, plus one electronic copy on diskette.  Disk format type
(IBM, Macintosh) as well as word processing format type (Word Perfect,
etc.), should appear on disk label as well as title of manuscript.  Disk
text should not contain any special function tags, i.e., tabs, bolding,
etc.  Authors who do not submit electronic text with their papers will be
assessed $12.50 per printed page to cover manual retyping.


1.	Spacing -- Papers must be double spaced to facilitate editing.

2.	Length -- Up to 5 printed pages.  A double-spaced 8.5 x 11 inch
page with 12  characters per lineal inch in the manuscript will be about
0.5 pages in PREPRINTS.  A page charge of $50.00 is made for each printed
page in  excess of five (5) including figures and tables.

3.	Original art -- figures, formulae photographs and tables -- must be
included.  The text is typeset to insure uniformity, but figures,
equations, formulae, photographs and long tables are replicated from your
copy.  This material will be electronically reduced to an appropriate size
if clarity allows.  Good crisp copy, with efficient layout, will improve
the appearance of your paper and minimize the space required.

4.	Heading -- A standard heading (example below) is used on all papers.

                                                     Title of Symposium
                                                 Date and Place of Meeting
                                                       Title of Paper
                                      Author(s), Association(s), Addresse(s)
                    Author's Phone Number (for Editor's questions.  Will
not be published)

5.	Key Words -- List three to five key words for indexing purposes.
6.	Literature Cited -- References are shown by a number in parenthesis
[i.e.,3)] following the point of reference.  These references may be listed
either alphabetically or in the order of occurrence in the LITERATURE CITED
section.  References must be complete and should conform to PREPRINTS style
as shown below:

Hutchings, G.J., Heneghan, C.S., Hudson, I.D., ACS Symposium Series, 638,
58 (1996).
Alivisatos, P., Science, 271, 933 (1996)

7.	Equations are designated in the text as Equation 1, etc.  The
equation itself is identified at the right-hand side with a number in half
parenthesis [i.e., 1)].

8. 	Conciseness -- Do not use tables and figures to present the same
data.  Use references for previously described equipment or processes.

9.	Deadlines -- Strict adherence to the deadlines provided by the
Symposium Organizer will facilitate timely publication and greatly increase
the chance of acceptance.

QSAR and Related Phenomenon symposium

        Dear Computational Chemistry Enthusiasts:

This message is to remind you that there are a lot of time slots still
available in the QSAR and Related Phenomenon symposium which is taking
place during the 1998 Dallas Spring ACS meeting.  We are hoping to have
all facets of this interesting discipline represented at the symposium
ranging from new statisical approaches to new descriptor technology.
If you are interested in presenting a paper during this symposium, please
send your standard ACS abstract forms to me ASAP.  The deadline for receipt
of abstracts is October 20th, 1997.

        Please send abstracts to:
