A., Penn State University, University Park, USA ABOUT THE CONFERENCE The Liblice Conference on the Statistical Mechanics of Liquids is a unique meeting held on the European Continent devoted both to basic research and to the application of molecular-based theories of liquids. The first three conferences were organized by the Chemical Physics Section of the Czechoslovak Chemical Society under the auspices of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences in 1983, 1986, and 1990, and the fourth conference, held in 1994, was organized jointly by the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and Cornell University. The jubilee fifth Conference is again organized jointly by the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and Cornell University, and intends to continue in the spirit of the preceding four meetings to provide an effective forum for contacts and for the exchange of ideas, with emphasis on discussions rather than on formal presentations. The meeting is intended to give a clear picture of the achievements and challenges in both theoretical and applied aspects of the discipline. The program will consist of invited plenary lectures, contributed papers, poster sessions, and a panel discussion. The principal subjects to be covered are listed below, but related topics will also be considered: o molecular simulation: methodology and applications o theoretical developments o specific systems: - ionic and polar liquids - associated liquids and aqueous solutions - inhomogeneous fluids - complex systems o application of molecular-based methods to real liquids Two microsymposia, one on fluids in nanoporous materials and the other on ionic systems, are also planned to be held during the meeting. The plenary speakers in the respective fields will include: W. G. Chapman, Houston P. T. Cummings, Charlottesville P. G. Debenedetti, Princeton D. J. Evans, Canberra C. K. Hall, Raleigh D. A. Kofke, Buffalo J. de Pablo, Wisconsin A. Z. Panagiotopoulos, Ithaca M. L. Rosinberg, Paris B. Smit, Amsterdam G. Stell, New York M. S. Wertheim, Haughton B. Widom, Ithaca SUBMISSION OF PAPERS Authors are invited to submit titles and abstracts of papers and/or posters to reach the organizers not later than 1 DECEMBER 1997 All submissions will be considered, but final acceptance for the Conference will depend on the decision of the Scientific Committee. The organizers would like to preserve the atmosphere of a medium-size meeting, and therefore the number of participants will be limited to approximately 100. If the number of interested participants exceeds this figure, attendees will be selected to reflect an appropriate breadth of representation. REGISTRATION AND FEE Those wishing to attend and receive the second circular should complete and return the enclosed registration form prior to 1 DECEMBER 1997, to: Dr. Ivo Nezbeda Stat Mech Meetings Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic 165 02 Prague 6 - Suchdol Czech Republic Phone: +420 2 24311498, +420 2 20390111 FAX: +420 2 342073 E-mail: [log in para visualizar] Registration by electronic mail is strongly encouraged. The registration form, along with updated information on the meeting, is also available on the world-wide-web at the URL: http://www.icpf.cas.cz/mol_studies/liblice.htm The conference fee for active participants will be USD 740 and will cover all local expenses, i.e. the registration fee, local transportation costs, room and board, and social events. For accompanying persons the fee will be USD 600 and includes a three day sightseeing program. Depending on resources available, Ph.D. students and young scientists may obtain a waiver and attend the meeting at a reduced fee. Application for the waiver must accompany the application for the conference. THE VENUE Liblice meetings are traditionally held away from large cities and built-up areas. The 5th meeting will be held in the mountain hotel Horizont at the altitude of 1060 m and accessible both by car and chair-lift. Zelezna Ruda, a small city located on the Czech-German border, is the main resort of the Sumava Mountains and the Sumava National Park and is about 160 km southwest of Prague and 170 km northeast of Munich, Germany. TAYLOR & FRANCIS Taylor and Francis will be sponsoring a Molecular Physics Lecture at the meeting. The article which will be refereed in the usual way will appear in a subsequent issue of the journal. The Scientific Committee will nominate the Lecturer.
