  FIRST ELECTRONIC MOLECULAR GRAPHICS AND MODELLING SOCIETY CONFERENCE
  ********************************************************************

	The First Electronic Molecular Graphics and Modelling 
Society Conference (MGMS EC-1) will be held on the Internet (the Net) 
and World Wide Web (the Web) from Oct 7-18, 1996 and will cover a 
broad range of disciplines related to molecular modelling, graphics 
and simulation methods and applications.  The conference is 
sponsored by Elsevier, the Molecular Graphics and Modelling 
Society, Molecular Simulations Inc, Oxford Molecular, NASA, 
Springer-Verlag, Wyeth-Ayerst, and GlaxoWellcome and is 
designed and operated by Greenlea Communications.
    
	The conference is being served from the following UK and 
US sites at Oxford University and Wesleyan University:
UK - http://bellatrix.pcl.ox.ac.uk/mgms/
USA - http://linus.chem.wesleyan.edu/~mirror/mgms/

	Conference registration supplying userid, password and 
payment details, is available through:
UK - http://bellatrix.pcl.ox.ac.uk/mgms/register.html
USA - http://linus.chem.wesleyan.edu/~mirror/mgms/register.html

	Conference subject areas are: Protein Structure (Rod 
Hubbard); Membranes and Membrane Proteins (Terry Stouch and 
Alan Robinson); Computational Nanotechnology (Al Globus); 
Protein Folding (Jeffrey Skolnick); Modelling of In Vivo Activity 
(Ed Hodgkin); Knowledge-based Library Design (Mike Hann); 
Surface Science (Donald Brenner); Host-guest interactions (Jon 
Essex); Carbohydrates and Protein-Carbohydrate Interactions 
(Anne Imberty); Enzyme Mechanisms (Guy Grant); Conformational 
Sampling (Robert Topper); Nucleic Acids (David Beveridge and 
Dennis Sprous); Quantum Chemistry (Tim Clark); Structure-based 
Design (David Winkler); Visualization (Art Olson); and Perspectives 
(Graham Richards).
  
	Presentations are in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), 
graphics (GIF,JPEG) and other web-compatible formats 
(VRML,Java,PDF) so that participants can view material via the World 
Wide Web (WWW).  During the conference meetings and discussions will take 
place via the Internet in real-time using a virtual conference centre based 
on a MOO (multiple-user domain, object oriented) and via Internet-
accessible electronic mailing lists and discussion areas.  

	The conference contains a Virtual Job Center and a Virtual 
Trade Center where commercial vendors, software and hardware 
developers, consultants, and contractors are able to display their 
goods and services and provide software demonstrations in return 
for exhibition fees to support conference activities. Any potential 
exhibitors should contact Barry Hardy at barry at bellatrix.pcl.ox.ac.uk
