Visas are guaranteed to all bona fide scientists. A visa to Israel is not necessary for participants from most countries (e.g., USA, Western Europe), but we suggest that you consult your travel agent. For participants from countries without diplomatic relations with Israel, please write directly to the Secretariat no later than TWO MONTHS prior to the Congress giving the following details: full name, date and place of birth, passport number and date and place of issue and expiry date, flight details (arrival date and flight number). The Secretariat will arrange for a visa to await you at Ben- Gurion Internatioanl Airport.


On request the Secretariat of the Congress will be happy to send a personal invitation to participate. It should be understood that such an invitation is only meant to help participants to raise travel funds or obtain a visa. It is not a commitment on the part of the organizers to provide any financial support.


All oral presentations will be published, following regular journal refereeing, in a special issue of the Journal of Molecular Structure (Theochem) which publishes regularly all the plenary and invited lectures of WATOC conferences. Please indicate on the registration form if you are interested in purchasing the Proceedings. The proposed price for participants is DFl. 175,- (approx. US$120).


A limited amount of funding may be available for young scientists. Applications should be made directly to the Chairman.


The weather in Jerusalem in July is warm and dry during the day, and cooler at night. Rain in July is a miracle! Temperatures range between 27 C (81 F) during the day and 17 C (63 F) at night.
