The 35th annual conference of the
Southeast Theoretical Chemists' Association
May 19 & 20 at Emory University










Sponsored by the Cherry L. Emerson Center  for Scientific Computation and the Department of Chemistry .

Program committee:  James Kindt, Joel Bowman, Keiji Morokuma


You are invited to join us for the 35th annual SETCA conference at Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia on Friday, May 19 (all day) and Saturday, May 20 (morning only).  This meeting has been a great opportunity for researchers and students from throughout the region interested in all aspects of theoretical and computational chemistry – from quantum chemistry, to polymers and colloid simulation, to biomolecular modeling – to learn about one another's work and exchange ideas.  We hope to see you at Emory this year in May!


Program will include:


Prof. Stuart Allison, Georgia State University

"Modeling the electrophoretic mobility of peptides and proteins in aqueous solution."

Prof. Jean-Luc BrŽdas, Georgia Institute of Technology

"Charge and energy transport in organic semiconductors."

Prof. Brian Dominy, Clemson University

"Evolution and its impact on macromolecular energetics and dynamics."

Prof. Rig Hernandez, Georgia Institute of Technology

"Diffusion in swelling/contracting/rotating colloidal suspensions."

Prof. Kennie Merz, University of Florida

"The role of quantum mechanics in structure-based drug design."

Prof. Hugh Nymeyer, Florida State University

"A molecular view of peptide-membrane interactions."

Prof. David Sherrill, Georgia Institute of Technology

"Hybrid methods in quantum chemistry."

Prof. Yongmei Wang, University of Memphis

"Polymer adsorption in nanoscale pores."


Contributed talks and poster session, with prizes for best student posters.
