We are pleased to announce the decennial Conference on Current Trends in Computational Chemistry (CCTCC). This year, the meeting organized annually by Jackson State University will be held at Jackson Hilton Hotel, Jackson, Mississippi on November 1-3, 2001. The 10th CCTCC will cover all areas of computational chemistry as well as quantum chemistry.

The format consists of a series of plenary lectures and poster presentations (Thursday 2pm – Saturday 7pm) covering applications as well as theory. Within two and a half days we will accommodate 25 talks of the previous CCTCC speakers as well as three poster sessions. 

The scope of the talks will be different from the previous meetings. We have asked invited speakers to cover the progress of their research areas over the last decade. As usual, poster presentations will cover results of current research activities.

I am also glad to inform you, that fourteen invited speakers contributed their reviews to a special “Perspectives on a Decade of Trends in Computational Chemistry” issue of THEOCHEM. This issue will appear in October 2001, and will be distributed among all registered participants.

Extended abstracts (up to four pages each) of all invited talks and poster presentations will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Original scientific contributions will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Molecular Structure (THEOCHEM). Manuscripts for inclusion in the special issue should be submitted in triplicate upon arrival at the registration desk. Submitted papers will be subject to the journal’s standard referee procedures.
