XIVth International Workshop on
Quantum Atomic and Molecular Tunneling in Solids and other Condensed Phases

We are pleased to announce that the 14th meeting of this international workshop
will be  held at the Hilton Hotel on the campus of the University of Houston in
Houston, Texas, USA from

Sunday, 28 October through Wednesday, 1 November 2007

The hallmark of this workshop has been its highly cross-disciplinary nature,
which includes work on tunneling of protons and heavier species in condensed
phases in general, including biological systems, chemical reactions, transport
phenomena in solids, etc.

Experimental and theoretical aspects of the role of quantum atomic and molecular
tunneling phenomena will form the main theme of the workshop, on topics such

Proton tunneling in hydrogen bonds
Tunneling in biological systems and enzyme catalysis
Kinetic Isotope Effect
Atomic and molecular tunneling on surfaces, in glasses and amorphous systems
Tunneling in porous materials
Proton Tunneling in water in confined spaces
Rotational tunneling
Tunneling diffusion phenomena
Spin-tunneling problems
Tunneling studies by NMR, and diffraction techniques
Advances in spectroscopic and other experimental techniques
Multidimensional tunneling theories
Advances in computational methods
Tunneling transport in superprotonic conductors, acids and bases

The scientific program is being arranged by the following International Advisory

George Reiter (chair) University of Houston
Amon Kohen, University of Iowa
Juergen Eckert, University of California Santa Barbara
Zorka Smedarchina, NRC Canada
Beat Meier, ETH Zürich
Arieh Warshel, University of Southern California
Miguel Garcia-Garibay, University of California Los Angeles
Naresh Dalal, Florida State University
Nigel Scrutton, University of Manchester
John Larese, University of Tennessee
Sharon Hammes-Schiffer, Penn State University
Antonio Fernandez Ramos, Universidad de Santiago de Compostela
Anthony Horsewill, University of Nottingham

The tentative deadlines for the submission of abstracts will be June 1, 2007,
and that for pre-registration August 1, 2007.

Further information regarding the program, invited speakers, registration and
submission of abstracts will shortly be available on the conference webpage,
which will be announced separately.
