An Electronic conference for discussing recent developments in Organometallic
Chemistry will be held during 30 June - 31 July 1997 on the Global Internet
using the World-Wide Web and electronic mail as the delivery mechanisms.
Scientific organisation will be under the auspices of
Society of Chemistry. ECTOC-3 will continue the innovative style
introduced with ECTOC-1 and ECTOC-2 (ECHET96) conferences
in offering a low cost and near-instant
mechanism for discussing chemistry, with features such as full colour structure diagrams,
editable structures and reaction
schemes, rotatable 3D molecular images, index searches of conference proceedings,
contributed discussions by participants,
up to date access statistics for
articles, photographs submitted by participants and
other novel features.
The conference will take the form of keynote
articles, contributed articles and posters and discussions on all aspects of
organometallic chemistry, including synthetic and modelling areas.
As with ECTOC-1 and ECHET96, we hope to publish a CD-ROM of the conference proceedings,
those accepted articles and posters whose authors have agreed to their inclusion.
The deadline for submission of abstracts of articles
or posters is Friday, April 25, 1997. Information about the conference,
including details of how to prepare and submit articles and the terms for their
acceptance can be
- Sending an electronic mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org with the single line message;
- Connecting to the following
World-Wide Web location using a client such as Netscape;
