First Announcement

High resolution molecular spectroscopy has been contributing much to science in general through clarifying structure and dynamics of various molecular species, and, in recent years, it is making new collaborative steps towards several research areas. As such we might mention life science, astronomy, and atmospheric science. In view of these important movements in high resolution molecular spectroscopy, we have decided to organize a symposium entitled "New Developments in High Resolution Molecular Spectroscopic Studies -- aiming at stronger collaboration with life science, astronomy, and atmospheric science --", which will be held in Kanazawa, Japan on the 11th to 13th of November, 2004.

We are planning to focus attention to the following topics:
(1)High resolution spectroscopic studies on internal motions in short-lived species and molecular complexes,
(2)Dynamical structure of biological molecules in relation to the mechanism of information transfer through living things, investigated by means of high resolution molecular spectroscopy,
(3)New applications of high resolution molecular spectroscopy to astronomy and atmospheric science.

We are inviting Drs. Jon T. Hougen and Anthony J. Merer as main speakers of the Symposium.
