Simulation of Clusters and Interfaces
The School of Chemistry,
The UK's EPSRC CCP5 Annual Meeting will be held in the School of Chemistry at The University of Birmingham from 6-8th September 1999.
University of Birmingham,
6-8th September 1999
The meeting will cover the traditional areas of CCP5, but with particular emphasis on applications of Monte Carlo, molecular dynamics and related techniques to the atomistic modelling and simulation of clusters (e.g. metallic and van der Waals clusters) and a wide range of interfacial systems (e.g. nanocolloids, micelles, liquid and solid surfaces, Langmuir films, Langmuir-Blodgett films). The meeting will consist of invited and contributed oral presentations and there will be a poster session.

TimetableThe meeting will start at 09.00 on Monday 6th September and finish at 13.00 on Wednesday 8th September. Accommodation is provided for the night of Sunday 5th September.
Registration and AccommodationThe registration form is available in postscript or text format. The postscript also duplicates the conference information, please display this.
The full conference cost (including accommodation, meals and refreshments) is 150 pounds per person, reduced to 130 pounds for students. For those not requiring accommodation, the registration fee received before 1st August is 85 pounds, but is only 65 pounds for students. The registration fee covers lunches on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and the conference dinner on Tuesday 7th September.
There is a 20 pounds supplement for those registering after 1st August.
There will be a 20 pounds discount for UK students who are also attending the Materials Modelling Laboratory Workshop (MML'99) in Oxford from 1-4th September provided that they register for the CCP5 AGM before 1st August.
The accommodation fee is 65 pounds. Accommodation will be in University House, one of the student Halls of Residence, which is within a short walking distance of the School of Chemistry. The accommodation fee includes dinner on the evening of 6th September and breakfast on 6th, 7th and 8th. For anyone wishing to find their own accommodation, a list will be provided of nearby 'Bed & Breakfast' establishments and hotels.
Presentations and abstractsAn abstract should be sent (preferably at the time of registration and definitely before August 1st) by electronic mail in an electronic format, preferably in LATEX or simply as a text file. If you use MS WORD, please send the abstract as a rtf document. Oral contributions and posters are welcome.
The final date for submitting an abstract for an oral or poster presentation is August 1st.
The abstracts will also be published as part of an issue of the CCP5 quarterly newsletter. Delegates are also encouraged to submit a longer account of their work for publication in the newsletter. Postscript diagrams will also be accepted.
