Thanks to the overwhelming success of the first three Indo-US Workshops on Mathematical Chemistry, the fourth Indo-US Workshop is set for January 8-12, 2005 in Pune, India. In keeping with the form of the earlier meetings, this workshop will focus on the symbiosis between chemistry, pertinent mathematical modeling, newer and effective computational approaches in chemoinformatics, environmental toxicology, QSAR, QMSA, bioinformatics (including genomics and proteomics), and other relevant field.

Objectives

  1. To review the progress in the field of mathematical chemistry and tangibly related areas.
  2. To bring scientists, teachers and students from various parts of the world and the country together for an effective interaction between them, geared for sharing their knowledge and experience concerning computer applications to pertinent problems.
To this end, there will be invited lectures, panel discussions, and poster presentations. In addition, in keeping with the stated objectives for this workshop there will be an interaction session with students at the Masters/Graduate level to emphasize and highlight the prospects of mathematical chemistry and its expanding horizon.

Themes of the Workshop
Theme I: Mathematical characterization of molecular structure and chemical similarity.
Theme II: Applications of mathematical chemistry in molecular design, drug discovery and approaches in natural product chemistry.
Theme III: Emerging application of mathematical chemistry in Bioinformatics & proteomics.
Theme IV: Mathematical chemistry in environmental toxicology and regulation of chemicals.

Abstracts for presentation as lecture or poster are now being accepted for the Fourth Indo-US Workshop. See the Call for Abstracts for details.

The Venue: Surrounded by rolling hills of Western-Ghat mountain ridge, Pune, at an altitude of 1000 feet, is a small city; rich in elements and habits of classical Indian culture and values. Although situated some 150 k.m southeast from pulsating Bombay (the economic-capital of India), Pune is comparatively calm and quite. The University of Pune, established in 1948 has traditionally been a place of enlightened research and acclaimed teaching. It has been chosen by UGC (University Grants Commission) Govt. of India, to be amongst the five 'Centres of excellance' in the realm of post graduate studies and research. The enthusiasm associated with organizing the fourth Indo-Us workshop on Mathematical chemistry would certainly be matching perfectly with the vibrance of students and professors of University of Pune.

How to reach Pune: Pune is on the western part of India. Although linked with all the other metropolitan cities of India viz. Delhi, Calcutta (recently renamed as Kolkata), Bombay (Mumbai), and Madras (Chennai) through air and railways; the easiest way to reach Pune is from Bombay. Pune is a 20 minute flight from Bombay; while it is a three hours drive.

The Indian organizers will arrange to meet participants at the Bombay airport and provide transportation from the airport to Pune and back to the airport following the workshop. If you would like to take advantage of this service, please provide the organizers with your travel itinerary as soon as possible. Itineraries and requests for transportation should be directed to

Climate: In January, the temperatures in Pune will range between 10° C to 25° C (50° F to 77° F), with light winds. Some warmer, perhaps light woolen clothing, is advisable, especially for the early morning and evening.
