The Sanibel Symposium on the Quantum Theory of Matter, embracing Quantum Chemistry, Quantum Biology and Solid-State Physics, have been held annually since their beginning in 1961. The 1996 symposium represents the 36th meeting. The Sanibel Symposia, which are uniquely influential in the field of Quantum Theory of matter, address the critical areas of research where modern quantum theoretical methods are playing key roles in the elucidation of current concepts and topics of great interest. Today the format for these symposia consists of a single eight-day meeting composed of various topical subsymposia that cover a wide range of current topics in molecular and materials sciences. This compact schedule, with no reduction in the total number of plenary and poster sessions, meets the original goals of the Sanibel Symposium, which are to stimulate the ex- change of ideas on a cross disciplinary, international level and to report on the current state-of-the-art methodology for quantum theoretical computational methods. Typically, more than 300 scientists from 30-40 different nations come to this symposium. We expect a similar sized meeting for 1996.
