I believe Malcolm intends that he will be the plenary lecturer in this

Note that he has selected all 18 of his speakers with no room for
contributions unless someone does not come.

I have been asked to organize a tutorial and symposium on "Static and
Dynamic Aspects of Polysaccharide Modeling" for the American Chemical
Society meeting to be held April 5-10, 1992 in SanFrancisco, CA.  This
a general request for contributions to the symposium and also a
request for a volunteer to deal with the area of quantum chemical
modeling of carbohydrates and their model compounds.  If you are
interested please advise at one of the addresses shown below.
