Saturday Statistical Mechanics Meeting
Date: January 8, 2000

Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm (with a break at 12:00pm for lunch)

Location: The McCollum Room, 775 Tan Hall ( In the College of Chemistry Complex)

In addition to the Pitzer Memorial Theoretical Chemistry Symposium there will be a day long Statistical Mechanics Meeting immediatley preceeding the meeting on the 8 of January 2000. A number of of outstanding people that are not among the lecturers at the main symposium have agreed to lecture at the smaller meeting.
