VIENNA:
	
	The organisers would like to invite you to a new conference in the
rapidely expanding field of molecular structural biology. The conference will
take place in Vienna, home of waltz, the capital of a fomrer great empire, one
of the three centres of the United Nations and a leading host city in the
world for important meetings and conferences. Scientific topics to be 
presented at this conference will highlight the state-of-the-art in biomolecular
structure determination in its context of molecular biology, medicine and
pharmacology. Scientists from both basic and industrial research are highly
welcome to present their results to an interested and enthusiastic audience.
In addition to the conference itself, you could take time to explore the
wonderful city of Vienna, perhaps wandering through the elegant parks in their
autumnal colours before soaking up the rich atmosphere of the renowned Viennese
cafes. A reception with the mayor in the historic Rathaus at the end of the 
first day of presentations will provide a taste of the rich Viennese culture
waiting to be discovered.
