WATOC Electronic Posters
As part of the WATOC96 Conference we are mounting an Electronic Poster
display. We received an excellent response, and we are not accepting any further
Submitting the Full Version of Your E-Poster
Your final full version of the electronic poster must be received by June 7, 1996. You can do this
- Send us your contribution by filling out an electronic form.
- If your poster contains diagrams and you
do not have access to a WWW server, prepare your contribution as
either a) a Microsoft
Word document (Word 6 or Word 5 only please) or b) a set of HTML and GIF/JPG documents
in the form of a compressed archive of the
file (e.g. tar, zip or sit).
Perform a binary ftp transfer to the following site;
ftp.ch.ic.ac.uk in directory watoc (please note you will
not be able to list entries in this directory, to respect confidentiality).
This should be followed by a regular e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org informing us it has arrived.
If you have access to 3D molecular coordinates which would be
appropriate to make available as part of your poster, we suggest you
consider the following;
- Save the coordinates in "pdb" or "xyz" format. Babel is a
program than can convert other file formats into one of these two.
- Create a hyperlink in your poster to the coordinate data, e.g.;
<A HREF="molecule.pdb">text or image describing molecule</A>
- Send the file to us. If you are serving from your own WWW server,
ensure the MIME types are set correctly (i.e. chemical/x-pdb pdb
or chemical/x-xyz xyz).
- For "state-of-the-art" display of molecules,
MDLI have announced Chemscape Chime. This
Netscape 2.0 plug-in allows 2D and 3D coordinate data in a variety of formats including pdb and
mol to be inspected "in-line" as part of a document. Inspect some examples
here, download Chime
here. The syntax you will have to
insert into your HTML code to take advantage of this is as follows;
<embed src="molecule.pdb" align=abscenter width=200 height=200 spiny=360 startspin=true display3D=ball&stick>
<noembed><A HREF="molecule.pdb"><IMG SRC="molecule.gif"></A></noembed>
(the noembed tag is for display by Browsers that do not support Chime).
The adventurous amongst you may wish to prepare their conference talk as a set of
World-Wide Web documents. There is precedent for this!.
If you send us the URL of your talk, we will mount it against the conference program.
