ECCC8 Reminder of January 18 Deadline for Abstracts
This is to remind you that abstracts for ECCC8,
the Eighth Electronic Computational Chemistry Conference,
are due by January 18, 2002 at http://eccc8.cooper.edu .
Free online registration is now open
and abstracts may be submitted online after registration.
As in previous years, the conference is multidisciplinary and
covers all aspects of computational and theoretical chemistry,
as well as computational molecular biology, computational
and theoretical molecular and atomic physics, visualization,
cheminformatics and the history of computational chemistry.
Participants will be able to view the presentations and discuss them
entirely through a web browser. As with the previous seven ECCCs,
ECCC8 has NO registration fee and is a completely virtual, online
Abstracts for all contributions to ECCC8 will be reviewed by the
Scientific Organizing Committee to insure novelty, scientific
value, and appopriateness for inclusion in the conference.
Presentations must be made in HTML format, and ideally
will take full advantage of the interactive nature of the
World-Wide Web to present their findings and conclusions.
In addition to completed work, work in progress is also acceptable for
an ECCC8 presentation. Authors may choose to either serve their
contributions from their own local web site, or may request us to upload
them to the ECCC8 server. Uploaded contributions will be removed from the
ECCC8 server at the end of ECCC8.
All authors are additionally encouraged to submit their work
for peer review and subsequent publication in the ECCC8
Proceedings. Current plans call for the Proceedings to be
published in Theoretical Chemistry Accounts, with the
accompanying presentations permanently archived on
TCA's web site. This peer review will be separate from, and in addition
to, the review of abstracts for the presentations. Detailed general
information on Theoretical Chemistry Accounts can be
found at the TCA web site:
As in ECCC7, a single weeklong "interactive" session will be part of
conference. This session will be held via asynchronous postings of
questions to the conference site, which authors can choose to receive
either at the site, at their personal email account, or both. All authors
must commit to having at least one co-author available
(i.e. checking the discussion board at least daily) during the
"interactive" session to provide timely responses (within
24 hours) to any questions that conferees may have about their online
presentation. Failure to participate fully in the interactive session may
result in a presentation being withdrawn from the conference.
Important dates for ECCC8 are:
November 9, 2001 - Registration opens; call for papers
January 18, 2002 - Abstracts due
February 27, 2002 - Final online presentations due
March 4, 2002 - Conference begins
March 18, 2002 - Interactive Session begins
March 24, 2002 - Interactive Session ends
April 1, 2002 - ECCC8 ends
April 30, 2002 - Contributions to proceedings due from authors
Please note that presentations which are not completely
ready by the beginning of the conference may be considered
to be withdrawn.
Complete details on how the conference will operate, abstract submission,
and conference registration will be found at
We invite all interested parties to contribute to ECCC8
and participate. Please share this announcement with
your colleagues and post it wherever appropriate so that
ECCC can continue to thrive and be a vital meeting for
the international computational chemistry community.
ECCC cannot, and will not, continue without your active participation.
