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

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.
