In the last decades, impressive advances have been made in the the use of quantum mechanical methods to calculate molecular properties including response properties. Linear and non-linear response methods have been developed and implemented for most of the approximate wave functions used in quantum chemistry, giving a range of computational methods of varying cost and accuracy. Thus it is presently possible to calculate for example excitation energies, polarizabilities, hyperpolarizabilities, and various induced transition moments, for a wide range of molecules and target accuracies. These advances are of importance for both fundamental and applied research. We find it appropriate to devote an international conference to these topics, and are therefore arranging the conference Response Theory and Molecular Properties May 5-8 2004 at the Sandbjerg Estate located in the southern part of Denmark.
The conference is also intended to celebrate two of the Danish pioneers in the field, Jan Linderberg and Poul Jørgensen, who in 2004 turn 70 and 60 years old, respectively.

The conference takes place at Sandbjerg Estate, scenically situated at the sea in the south-eastern part of Jutland close to the German border (see map).
Transportation: Sandbjerg Estate is a taxi ride of about 7 km from Sønderborg. There are trains from Copenhagen to Sønderborg every second hour, trains from Hamburg (Germany) to Sønderborg every second hour, and five daily domestic flights from Copenhagen with Cimber Air (http://www.cimber-air.dk).
Due to the limited number of rooms (72) available at the Sandbjerg Estate, the number of participants is limited to 72-85, depending on how many participants share one of the fifteen double rooms. We therefore urge people who plan to attend the conference to register as early as possible after January 15. The deadline for registration is March 1, but registration may be closed earlier, if the number of registered participants exceeds the number of available rooms.
Payment detailsPlease pay by direct transfer of the total fee as calculated according to the prices above to the account stated below before March 15, 2004. To ensure that the money are correctly credited to you, make sure that your name is included in the address of the sender. If you are paying from an account where your name is not directly included, add your name as a message to the receiver.
