                                  VIENNA, AUSTRIA

This conference, organised by the Biophysical Chemistry subgroup of the
Chemical Society (G=D6CH), is the third in the ICMSB series, which aims =
bring together=20
scientists from the fields of X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy,
molecular biology,=20
structure prediction, computer modeling and microscopy. The third
conference will again=20
cover all these areas, and will in addition feature a session on the
industrial use of=20
these techniqes in the design of novel drugs.

The beautiful central european city of Vienna is an ideal conference
location, not only=20
because of its international airport and excellent public transport
system, but also=20
because of its beauty and historical interest.=20

The conference will take place from the evening of Wednesday 8th
