FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

7th Nordic Symposium on Computer Simulation
September 3 - 5, 1993
Espoo, Finland


SCOPE

This symposium continues the series of meetings rotating in the Nordic 
countries. It focuses on  computer simulation methods and techniques 
(such as the Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics) and their applications 
in physical,  chemical and biological sciences. 

We welcome participants from all countries.

PROGRAM

The program will consist of both invited and contributed talks, and there 
will ample time for poster sessions and demonstrations. 
Among the topics of interest in the 1993 symposium are

o membranes and amphifilic aggregates
o materials simulations
o solvation phenomena
o protein folding and conformations
o complex phenomena
o clusters
o algorithms and visualisation

The tentative list of invited speakers includes 
H. Berendsen (Groningen), 
M. Klein (Philadelphia),  
H. Konschin (Helsinki), 
J. Krug (Yorktown Heights), 
K. Rummukainen (CERN),
G. Skolnick (La Jolla), 
M. Neumann (Vienna), 
D. Landau (Athens, USA), and
J-P. Hansen (Lyon).

LOCATION

The symposium will be held  at the Center for Scientific Computing (CSC) 
in Otaniemi, the campus of Helsinki University of Technology,  eight 
kilometers from downtown Helsinki.  Accommodation will be in nearby, 
reasonably priced hotels.

PARTICIPATION

Those interested in receiving further information are requested to fill 
in the enclosed preliminary registration form. We also invite submissions 
for contributed talks and posters. 

TIMETABLE

The second circular will be mailed in February 1993, containing the final 
registration and accommodation reservation forms, instructions for writing 
abstracts, the program outline, and travel instructions.
