    South Dakota State University and Amoco Chemical Company will host a
    three day conference on Theoretical and Computational Approaches to
    Interface Phenomena August 2-4 1993 at South Dakota State Univeristy
    in Brookings, South Dakota.  Speakers from academia and industry will
    discuss topics at the forefront of this field such as modeling
    catalysis, thin organic films, metals, and surfaces, surface
    diffusion, metal/electrolytic solution interfaces, and interactions
    with biological surfaces.  The presentations will relate new software
    methodologies and theoretical techniques, present comparisons between
    methods or parameterization schemes, and share computational strategies.
    The conference will provide ample time for participants to interact
    with the speakers and talk to third party software vendors.  A
    reception and registraton will be held Sunday evening, August 1
    between 7 and 10 pm at the Holiday Inn of Brookings.  Presentations

    of August 2.  Negotiations are currently underway for the publication
    of the conference proceedings as a hardback book.  Speakers will
    contribute a chapter to the conference book and participants presenting
    posters can contribute a research summary.  All presenters will be
    invited to contribute an abstract of their presentation for inclusion
    in a book of abstracts that will be distributed at the start of the
    conference.  The conference will adjourn at 4:30 pm on Wednesday August 4.

    Travel Information
    The Brookings Airport has commercial airline commuter service from
    Minneapolis operated by the G P Express Airline Company,
    (605) 692-6818.  Flights directly into Brookings are easy to obtain,
    but they must connect through Minneapolis.  If this is not convenient,
    commercial air service to Sioux Falls, South Dakota is recommended.
    Conveyance Vans operates a shuttle service that runs between Sioux
    Falls and Brookings with 'door-to-door' service.  The shuttle service
    runs according to passengers' flight schedules.  Conveyance Vans can
    be reached at (605) 692-2236.  Cars can also be rented at the Sioux
    Falls airport.  Flying into Brookings via Minneapolis is usually more
    economical than flying into Sioux Falls and driving to Brookings by
    car if your point of origin is southeast of Brookings.
