As I write this, a major ice storm is being forecast for Central Ohio, following day after day of snow
and subzero temperatures, and spring still seems many weeks away. It all makes a trip to San Diego
sound better and better. But I think that there is a lot more than the promise of sunshine to attract
us to an undamaged part of Southern California, and I hope to see many of you there.
Richard Love and the other members of the Program Committee have worked hard to pull together an
exciting program for San Diego, running from Sunday!!! through Wednesday and including symposia
on numeric databases, similarity search (cosponsored with the Division of Computers in Chemistry),
contemporary issues in chemical information, and uses of Internet. Those who can stay an extra day
will find that our friends in COMP have put together an excellent program on "Scientific Visualization
and Applications of Multimedia" on Wednesday and Thursday. And don't forget the CINF luncheon on
Tuesday, where we expect to have an informative program on some important research going on in
the San Diego area.
In spite of the current ice and snow, spring is really not that far away, and June will be coming fast,
bringing the first-ever National Chemical Information Symposium. By the time you read this, you will
probably have program and registration forms in hand. Try to make June 19-23 available for this new
event in our history as a Division. And we guarantee no ice storms!
Finally, I need to express my thanks to some folks who completed a variety of jobs with our Division
at the end of 1993. Those who come to mind include Ruthann Bates, former Membership Committee
Chairman (and now Division Chair-Elect), Edlyn Simmons, who has completed her term as Chairman
of the Awards Committee, our former Bulletin Editor Marge Matthews, departing Secretary Vickie Veach,
and our Past Chairman Gary Wiggins (anyone I have left out, please forgive this lapse). All of these
people have exemplified high standards of service to the Division and their profession, and we are
grateful for their work.

I just received confirmation of the speaker for the CINF luncheon. I am pleased to announce that our guest
for the CINF luncheon will be Professor D. John Faulkner of the Department of Marine Chemistry of the Scripps
Institution of Oceanography at the University of California in San Diego. Professor Faulkner is a leading
authority on marine natural products, and the topic of his talk will be "The Search for Drugs from the Sea."
Please join us for what promises to be a very good presentation on an important research effort.
