Sixth International Congress of the
INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR THEORETICAL CHEMICAL PHYSICS
July 19-24, 2008
Vancouver, BC, Canada
Very soon, the ISTCP-VI website (http://www.chem.ubc.ca/istcp6) will
be open for abstract submission. In the coming weeks, please visit
the conference website for updated information and details.
The Sixth Congress of the International Society for Theoretical
Chemical Physics (ISTCP-VI) (http://www.chem.ubc.ca/istcp6) will be
held on July 19-24, 2008 in the beautiful campus of the University
of British Columbia (UBC) at Vancouver, BC, Canada. The history of
ISTCP and its Congresses is available at the following link:
Held every three years, ISTCP Congresses continue the tradition of
showcasing the achievements and advances in all areas of theoretical
chemical physics, with special emphasis on the interaction between
experimental and theoretical physical chemistry, chemical physics,
and materials and life sciences. The scope of ISTCP-VI will cover a
broad range of topics that include Biophysical/Medical Simulations,
Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Chemistry, Density-Functional Theory,
Coupled Clusters, Quantum Monte Carlo, Quantum/Classical Dynamics,
Nanosystems, Coherent Control, Ultra-cold Chemistry, AttoScience,
and Novel Materials.
As usual, the proceedings of the Congress will be published in the
International Journal of Quantum Chemistry (IJQC) and Progress in
Theoretical Chemistry and Physics (PTCP). Research papers will
appear in IJQC (Wiley) while review papers will appear in PTCP
(a book series published by Springer).
With extensive advertising all over the world, we anticipate the
total number of participants to ISTCP-VI to reach 250. This will
definitely be a wonderful opportunity to know the latest cutting-
edge advances in theoretical chemical physics and to network with
your colleagues worldwide.
It is our great pleasure to invite you to join us for a five-day
scientific fest at UBC during ISTCP-VI.
Several members of the Honorary Board of Directors of ISTCP (which
includes 4 Nobel Laureates and 4 Wolf Prize Awardees) have expressed
their intention to attend the Congress.
With best wishes,
The ISTCP-VI Executive Committee
Alex Wang (Chair, UBC, Canada)
Erkki J. Brandas (Co-chair, President of ISTCP, Sweden)

Vancouver is the largest city in Western Canada, located at the south-
western corner of the province of British Columbia. Situated between
the north-shore and coastal mountains and the edge of the Pacific
ocean, Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in North America,
and was recently ranked as "the world's most desirable place to live"
in a survey of 127 cities performed by the Intelligence Unit of the
magazine The Economist. It is also the hosting city of the 2010 Olympic
Winter Games. The vibrant downtown core offers all the amenities of
an international destination - from hundreds of restaurants and clubs
through countless parks and recreation facilities to world-class
sporting and entertainment events (including the Vancouver Symphony
Orchestra and the Canucks - the city's major league hockey team).
Vancouver's natural surroundings offer limitless opportunities for
outdoor pursuits, such as hiking and mountain biking in the Spring
and Summer, and skiing at nearby Whistler-Blackcomb resort in Winter.
We invite you to explore Vancouver and Beautiful British Columbia at

Highly ranked among the world's best universities, the University of
British Columbia holds an international reputation for excellence in
advanced research and learning (http://www.ubc.ca/global/index.html).
Only 30 minutes from the vibrant heart of downtown Vancouver, the
spectacular UBC campus is a 'must-see' for any visitor of the world:
snow-capped mountains can be seen meeting the ocean, and breathtaking
vistas greet you around every corner. The UBC campus also boasts some
of the city's best attractions and recreation facilities, including
the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts (mainly music), the Museum
of Anthropology, the UBC Botanical Garden, and endless opportunities
to explore forested trails in the adjoining 763-hectare Pacific
Spirit Regional Park. More attractions of UBC are available at
