The 4th Southern School on Computational Chemistry is organized together by the members of the NSF-EPSCOR Computational Chemistry Cluster, NSF-CREST Computational Center for Molecular Structure and Interactions, and the Army High Performance Computing Research Center.

The meeting will be held at the Winfield Resort Hotel in beautiful Orange Beach, Alabama (next to Pensacola, FL) on March 26 and 27, 2004 (Friday 2 p.m. Saturday 10 p.m.).

There will be two formal lectures by Dr. Ernest Davidson from University of Washington and Dr. Andrzej Sadlej from Nicolaus Copernicus University.

In addition, we are planning 20-30-minute oral presentations of senior investigators and posters from the students. These presentations will cover all areas of computational and quantum chemistry. A special session on High Performance Computing on Large Molecular Systems is scheduled for the Friday afternoon. We will publish a volume of proceedings with abstracts and a special issue of "Structural Chemistry" with selected papers from the meeting. Please email your abstracts and your pictures by March 1, 2004 to Dr. Y. Podolyan . The pictures will be included in the conference materials along with the list of participants.
