MTCC 2001 will feature four plenary sessions, the Dirac Award Lecture, and two poster sessions. The social program includes a reception on Thursday evening, October 4, and a Friday evening, October 5, mixer to complement the poster sessions.

  An award committee was appointed to judge poster abstracts by graduate students, and a new award, the Midwest Theoretical Chemistry Conference Dirac Award for Outstanding Graduate Research in Theoretical Chemistry will be given on the basis of the committee's evaluation. The 36 poster abstracts that were submitted by the deadline were judged on the basis of the quality of abstract as well as the quality of the work; there was a two-page limit on poster abstracts. The Dirac Award winner has been invited to present the Dirac Award Lecture.

  We are grateful to the following persons for serving on the Dirac Award Committee:

  • James Skinner, University of Wisconsin, chair
    J. Daniel Gezelter, University of Notre Dame
    Lawrence B. Harding, Argonne National Laboratory
    Anne B. McCoy, The Ohio State University

  We are pleased to announce that:

  • Jason D. Thompson, University of Minnesota

has been selected as the recipient of the 2001 Midwest Theoretical Chemistry Conference Dirac Award for Outstanding Graduate Research in Theoretical Chemistry for his paper entitled "Reactions of Hydroxide with Chlorinated Hydrocarbons".
