FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CHEMICAL STRUCTURES
Sunday, June 6 through Thursday, June 10, 1999
Leeuwenhorst Congress Center, Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands
Chemical Structure Association (CSA)
Chemistry-Information Division of the Society of German Chemists (GDCh)
Division of Chemical Information of the American Chemical Society (ACS)
New Swiss Chemical Society (NSCS)
Royal Netherlands Chemical Society (KNCV)
Royal Society of Chemistry, Chemical Information Group (RSC)
With the Fifth International Conference on Chemical Structures we continue
this well established conference series that begun in 1973 as a workshop on
"Computer Representation and Manipulation of Chemical Information"
sponsored by the NATO Advanced Study Institute and thereafter was held
under its new name in 1987, 1990, 1993, and 1996. The 1999 Conference
should continue the high standard of technical presentations and
discussions that characterized all previous conferences.
The Leeuwenhorst Congress Center in Noordwijkerhout is a modern
comprehensive center near Leiden in a quiet rural setting close to the
dunes and the beach. The Center is located between Amsterdam and Den Haag
and readily accessible from major European cities by train or automobile.
The conference will consist of several plenary sessions and an extended
poster session; all submitted papers will be reviewed by a Scientific
Review Committee. Additionally, there will be a new-product review session
and exhibition featuring both commercially available software and databases
as well as software from research projects. Because of significant
additions to the facilities at the Congress Center a large area (Atrium)
adjacent to the lecture hall will be used for the exhibition and posters,
open on Monday and Tuesday from 9 AM to 10 PM.
Note: Detailed information about the conference, including "Call for
Papers" and registration, will be available at the end of October on our
website (through ChemWeb) and on several listservers. All correspondence
for this conference will be in electronic format.
