The Computers in Chemistry Division
Fall 1998 Newsletter

Message from the Secretary

Michelle M. Francl

The division is delighted to announce that our agreement with Elsevier publishing is well underway. Don Boyd (Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis) has agreed to serve as the new North American editor for the Journal of Molecular Graphics and Molecular Modeling. Don, along with Ken Llpkowitz, has been the editor for the series Reviews in Computational Chemistry. We are certain he will bring the same passion for the subject and attention to detail that marks the Reviews series to JMGMM. Don is currently engaged in assembling a new North American editorial board.

The executive board at its meeting in Dallas discussed potential limits on the number of posters a single presenter might have in a given session. If you have any thoughts on this issue, please let the program chair, Dominic Ryan, know before the fall board meeting during the Boston ACS meeting.

We are looking forward to celebrating the division's 25th anniversary next year. Plans are underway for a symposia series in 1999. If you have suggestions, or would like to volunteer to help organize a symposium, please contact Dominic Ryan.

Election ballots will soon find their way to your mailboxes -- please return them as soon as possible! If you are interested in getfing involved with the governance of the division, we would love to have you, contact Michelle Franci for further infon-nation.
