"Internet for the Practicing Chemist"

214th National American Chemical Society Meeting

Las Vegas, NV, September 7-11, 1997

Division of Computers in Chemistry (COMP) of the American Chemical Society cordially invites you to present a paper at the symposium "Internet for the Practicing Chemist" to be held at the National ACS Meeting in Las Vegas, Sept. 7-11, 1997. ABSTRACT MUST BE RECEIVED BEFORE APRIL 18, 1997.

The scope of the symposium is broadly defined as "Use of Internet in Chemistry" and possible topics include (listed here without any priority in mind): Internet in education and distance learning, legal and business aspects of the Internet, standards and applications for publishing and presenting information on the Internet (e.g., CGI, CML, HTML, Java, JavaScript, MIME, VRML, etc., etc.), tools for conferences and collaboration over the Internet, managing information resources on the Internet, research uses of the Internet, and studies on the impact of Internet in chemistry. Please indicate how much time should be allocated for your presentation, and what special equipment you may require. I would like to encourage authors to prepare material for their presentation in Web form. The details of depositing this material will be provided to the authors at a later date.

The abstracts should be submitted on the original abstract form (please submit 4 copies). You can obtain this form electronically (an MS-WORD template) from: or request the hardcopy from ACS via e-mail ( or Web ( You can also submit abstracts via a Web form directly to me: If nothing works, I may try to retype a few abstracts (Max. 150 Words!!!) on the original form if I get them early enough and in an electronic form (plain text) via e-mail. Include all additional information requested on the form, i.e., names and addresses of all coauthors, presenting author phone, FAX, and e-mail, and ACS Division membership.

The COMP Division does not provide financial support for travel expenses for speakers. However, if you have some prospective sponsors, they will get due credit and acknowledgment during the symposium, their support will be acknowledged in the Web site resulting from the symposium, and I will be more than willing to write a solicitation letter as a Session Chairman to the prospective sponsor. Please contact me if such an opportunity exists in your case.

PLEASE SEND COPIES OF YOUR ABSTRACT AS A FILE ATTACHMENT TO: Rich Lysakowski at "" [Symposium Chairman] Charlie Gragg at "" [ACS CINF Division Chairman] HISTORY OF THE SYMPOSIUM SERIES In 1992 Steve Schmidt and Rich Lysakowski committed to host a series of symposia at various international venues to catalyze the creation and acceptance of electronic notebooks and related systems in science. We decided a dozen symposia held over a ten-year period would suffice to "make it happen." We've had six symposia so far and we are most of the way there now. ======================================================= Program Chair: George R.
