First Announcement and Call for Registration & Submission of Abstracts

The 4th Molecular Modelling conference and workshop (MM98) will be held
July 19-22, 1998 at Macquarie University and VisLab in Sydney,

MM98 provides the main forum to foster interactions between Australian
researchers with an interest in the development and use of molecular
modelling. Similar to the previous workshops, there will be lectures,
talks, posters and 'hands-on' computer sessions focusing on the latest
developments in the area. The hands-on sessions, at VisLab (Australian
Technology Park) will allow registrants to assess the latest molecular
modelling software and hardware.

The workshop welcomes a wide range of participants: from beginners and
interested collaborators to experienced researchers in the field of
molecular modelling.

This year's workshop will include presentations on the theory and
applications of molecular modelling in chemistry, material sciences and
life sciences.

There will be four main themes at MM98, with the following plenary

1) Ligand design
- Scott Kahn, MSI Inc., San Diego, USA
- John Bremner, University of Wollongong, NSW
- Richard Christopherson, University of Sydney, NSW

2) Protein / DNA Modelling
- Steve Benner, University of Florida, USA
- David Jones, University of Warwick, UK
- Herbert Treutlein, Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research,

3) Quantum Chemistry
- Peter Kollman, University of California, San Francisco, USA
- Tim Clarke, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany

4) Molecular modelling in material science
- Bernard Pailthorpe, University of Sydney, NSW
- Bob Gilbert, University of Sydney, NSW
