Here are a few pictures from a trip to the 1997 Midwest Theoretical Chemistry Conference which was held at the Beckman Institute of the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in late May.

I (Rainer), Mike, Stephanie and Rhonda drove to Urbana in the afternoon of Thursday. Don Steiger drove up a bit later the same day.

The conference featured invited lectures, contributed planary talks and poster sessions. Rainer gave a talk on Dual Substituent Parameter LFER and Mike and Don had posters.
