Subject: 09.05.01 "Atoms in Molecules" Symposium: Canadian Chemical Conference & Exhibition (CSC 2009)
We are happy to invite you to participate in the Symposium on interpreting chemical computations at the annual national meeting of the Canadian Society for Chemistry, to be held in Hamilton, Ontario (30 May-5 June 2009): Symposium Website: ================ http://www.csc2009.ca/index.cfm/ci_id/5376/3.htm#Atoms_in_Molecules Conference Website: ================ http://www.csc2009.ca/index.cfm/ci_id/5145/la_id/1.htm This symposium, in honor of Richard Bader, will be conceptual techniques for interpreting chemical computations. While the title is "Atoms in Molecules" the symposium will be significantly broader, including not only QTAIM but also other theories based on the electron density such as "conceptual" or "chemical" DFT, MO theory, valence bond theory, etc. The list of confirmed speakers below shows that breadth (this list is expected to grow): Confirmed Invited Speakers (so far) ==================================== James Anderson, McMaster University, (Canada) Richard Bader, McMaster University, (Canada) Andre Bandrauk, UniversitÃ© de Sherbrooke, (Canada) Friedrich Biegler-KÃ¶nig, Fachhochschule Bielefeld, (Germany) Russell Boyd, Dalhousie University, (Canada) Patrick Bultinck, University of Ghent, (Belgium) Morrel Cohen, Rutgers University, (USA) Fernando Cortez Guzman, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM), (Mexico) Frank De Proft, Vrije University Brussel (VUB), (Belgium) Patrick Fowler, University of Sheffield, (UK) Jose Luis Gazquez, University Aut. Metropolitana (UAM), (Mexico) Paul Geerlings, Vrije University Brussel (VUB), (Belgium) Jesus Hernandez-Trujillo, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM), (Mexico) Samantha Jenkins, University West, (Sweden) Erin Johnson, Duke University, (USA) Todd Keith, Semichem Inc. and University of Missouri (USA) Claude Lecomte, UniversitÃ© Henri PoincarÃ© Nancy 1, (France) Creon Levit, NASA-Ames, (USA) Angel Martin-Pendas, Universidad de Oviedo, (Spain) Lou Massa, Hunter College, City University of New York (CUNY), (USA) Junia Melin, Auburn University, (USA) Vince Ortiz, Auburn University, (USA) Robert Parr, University North Carolina, (USA) Andreas Savin, CNRS, (France) Akitomo Tachibana, Kyoto University, (Japan) Nick Werstiuk, McMaster University, (Canada) Krzysztof Wozniak, Warsaw University, (Poland) Our goal is to facilitate a mind-stimulating exchange not only on what the current status of interpreting chemical computations is, but, more importantly, what the major outstanding problems and what the most promising (and least promising) approaches to those problems are. While Hamilton has an airport (20 minutes from the conference venue), it is often *much* cheaper to fly into Toronto (Pearson Airport; 50 minutes away) or Buffalo, New York, U.S.A. (Buffalo-Niagara; 90 minutes away). Shuttles are available to Hamilton from either airport, provided you reserve the shuttle in advance. Car rentals in Buffalo, but not Toronto, are usually quite affordable.) We hope that you will participate in this event. If you are planning to attend, please submit your abstract BEFORE 18 FEBRUARY 2009. If you cannot meet this deadline, you can still participate by sending your abstract by email to both of us (ayers_._mcmaster.ca, Cherif.Matta_._dal.ca). For registration details see: http://www.csc2009.ca/index.cfm/ci_id/5147/la_id/1.htm We hope to see you in Hamilton, Paul W. Ayers and Cherif F.
