38th Midwest Chemistry Conference

Ohio State University Campus, Columbus Ohio

June 15-17, 2006

The Midwest theory meetings have provided us with an opportunity to celebrate theoretical chemistry in the Midwest, starting with the first meeting at the University of Chicago in 1967. 

The meeting will run from Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon.  The majority of the talks will be contributed with the expectation that the majority will be presented by students or postdocs.  In addition there will be poster sessions and several longer, invited talks.  These will be given by:

James Anderson, Penn State, Quantum Monte Carlo: Higher Accuracies for Larger Systems
Qiang Cui, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Hydroxide in long-range proton transfers: 200 years after Grotthuss
Kenneth Jordan, Pittsburgh, On the Role of Electrostatics and Polarization in Water Models
Russell Pitzer, Ohio State, Zigs and Zags in Quantum Chemistry
Tamar Seideman, Northwestern Current-driven dynamics in molecular-scale electronics

For people interested in Molecular Spectroscopy, this year's MWTCC is scheduled to precede the 61st International Symposium on Molecular Spectroscopy which will take place on the Ohio State campus, June 19-23 (http://molspect.chemistry.ohio-state.edu/symposium/), and arrangements can be made for people who plan to attend both meetings.


Questions on the conference should be addressed to Anne McCoy (mccoy@chemistry.ohio-state.edu).
