The Division of Chemical Information celebrates its 37th Anniversary this year. It is a priviledge to be the chairman
in 1986. The lists of current and former officers of the Division appear elsewhere in this issue. The continued
success of the Division has been the result of the leadership and hard work of all of them.
The excellence in technical programming has been recognized, not only by the attendance at national
meetings, but also by other ACS Divisions and other professional societies who have been eager to program with
CINF. On Monday, April 14, 1986, in New York, the chemical information groups of the ACS, ASIS and SLA will
sponsor the third Tri-Society Symposium. The theme of the full-day symposium will be, "New Technologies and
Chemical Information: 1986". Talks on topics such as optical storage technology, artificial intelligence expert
systems and telecommunications will be presented.
The Herman Skolnik Award will be given in 1986 to Dale B. Baker, Deputy Executive Director of the American
Chemical Society and Director of Chemical Abstracts Service. The award will be presented to Mr. Baker on
Wednesday afternoon, April 16, 1986 in New York. The theme of the award symposium will be, "Challenges in
Moving Toward a New International Chemical Information Order." Mr. Baker has invited four noted speakers: Dr.
Jacques Michel, Director, Telesystems Questel; Dr. Helmut Grunewald, VCH Verlagsgeselschaft; Dr. Hideaki
Chihara, Japan Association for International Chemical Information; and Dr. Paul Rhyner, Ciba-Geigy, Ltd. The
symposium will be followed by a reception in Mr. Baker's honor.
In New York, the CINF business meeting will be held on Tuesday afternoon, April 15, 1986, after the technical
program. This meeting is open to any and all members. I invite you to attend. The strength of the Division lies in
the input, as well as support of the membership.
For many of you, the Chemical Information Bulletin represents the most tangible aspect of your membership.
As Editor, Marge Matthews has worked hard to improve the readability of the Bulletin and to diversify its content.
For example, as CINF Historian, Herman Skolnik will prepare a brief history of our 37 years for inclusion in the
Summer issue. As has been customary, the abstracts for the New York and Anaheim meetings will appear in the
first two issues.
I have only briefly highlighted several of the 1986 CINF programs and mentioned only a few of the individuals
who will be involved. I hope to be able to provide you with additional information on an ongoing basis as the year
progresses. I look forward to a busy year for me and for the Division.
