Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to invite you to attend the NAS "Colloquium on Computational 
Biomolecular Science," to be held in Irvine, California, September 11-13, 1997.  
The Colloquium is intended to stimulate interdisciplinary discussion across the 
areas of biomolecular structure, function, and evolution, and to point to ways 
in which computation can help to explore the interfaces among these areas.

Attendance will be limited to about 200 participants.  A diverse group of 
speakers will provide points of departure for the discussion, but ample time
will be allowed for general and informal elaboration.  The speakers will include

  Peer Bork (EMBL, Heidelberg)            Wen-Hsiung Li (Univ. Texas, Houston)
  Douglas Brutlag (Stanford)              Alexey Murzin (MRC, Cambridge)
  William Eaton (NIH)                     Jose Onuchic (UCSD)
  Ron Elber (Hebrew Univ)                 Gregory Petsko (Brandeis)
  Hans Frauenfelder (Los Alamos)          Robert Sauer (MIT)
  Elizabeth Getzoff (Scripps Research     Harold Scheraga (Cornell)
    Institute)                            Klaus Schulten (Illinois)
  Philip Green (Univ. Washington)         Rebecca Wade (EMBL, Heidelberg)
  Angela Gronenborn (NIH)                 Arieh Warshel (USC)
  Michael Levitt (Stanford)
  
The meeting is planned to extend from the late afternoon of September 11 
(registration and a light dinner/reception), through September 13, so that 
participants can depart early on September 14.  The meeting will be held at 
the Academy's conference center in Irvine.
