ECCC10 will be held during the entire month of April 2005, entirely on the Internet, at http://eccc.monmouth.edu. As with the previous nine ECCCs, ECCC10 has NO registration fee and is a completely virtual, online conference.

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Donald G. Truhlar (University of Minnesota) has agreed to present the keynote address to ECCC10. Dr. Truhlar is an internationally respected expert in computational chemistry and chemical physics who to date has co-authored nearly 700 research publications. The proceedings will be published in a special issue of Theoretical Chemistry Accounts.

The ECCC is a multidisciplinary, international conference and spans all aspects of computational and theoretical chemistry and materials science, as well as computational molecular biology, computational and theoretical molecular and atomic physics, visualization, cheminformatics, the history of computational chemistry, computational chemistry and education, and all related fields. Participants will be able to view the presentations and discuss them entirely through a web

The ECCC was originally developed by Steven Bachrach, who also organized the first five meetings.

Abstracts for all contributions to ECCC10 will be peer-reviewed to insure novelty, scientific value, and appopriateness for inclusion in the conference. This peer review is directed by members of the ECCC10 Scientific Organizing Committee, who have volunteered to help with all aspects of the conference.

The members of the ECCC10 SOC are:

Robert Topper, Monmouth University (Chair)
Frederick R. Bennett, CSIRO Minerals
David Chatfield, Florida International University
Olga Dmitrenko, University of Delaware
Guangyu Sun , NCI-Frederick, NIH
Mark Tuckerman, New York University
Amir Weitz, RAFAEL

This year, following peer review of the abstracts we plan to publish a virtual online booklet of the accepted abstracts online sometime after the conference ends. In addition, presenting authors can elect to submit their work for additional peer review and publication in a special ECCC10 Proceedings issue of Theoretical Chemistry Accounts.

All presentations must be made in HTML format and ideally will take full advantage of the interactive nature of the World-Wide Web (using animations, hyperactive molecules, etc.) to present their methods, findings and conclusions. Authors may choose to either serve their contributions from their own local web site, or may request us to serve them from our own server. Uploaded contributions will be removed from our server at the end of ECCC10.

As in ECCC8 and ECCC9, a single weeklong "interactive" session will be part of the conference. This session will be held via asynchronous posting of questions to the conference site, which authors can choose to receive either at the site, at their personal email account, or both. All authors must commit to having at least one coauthor available to answer questions (i.e. by checking the discussion board at least once daily) during the "interactive" session to provide timely responses (within approximately 24 hours) to any questions that conferees may have about their online presentation.

Important dates for ECCC10 are:

December 1, 2004 – Registration (free) for ECCC10 begins
January 28, 2005 - Abstracts must be submitted on the conference

March 24, 2005 - Final presentations of accepted presentations due online
April 1, 2005 - ECCC10 begins
April 11, 2005 – Interactive Session begins
April 18, 2005 – Interactive Session ends
April 30, 2005 – ECCC10 ends
June 30, 2005 – Submissions to the ECCC10 Proceedings due

As mentioned above, all ECCC10 presentations must be in HTML format,
with their layout and presentation at the discretion of the authors.
Authors who wish to submit an article to the ECCC10 Proceedings will
need to develop their contribution according to the editorial standards
and accepted formats of Theoretical Chemistry Accounts.

We greatly look forward to your participation in ECCC10, and ask you to
please encourage your colleagues and students to participate in what
should be an excellent meeting.
