The ACS Division of Chemical Education's Committee on Computers in Chemical Education (C.C.C.E.) seeks to promote and publicize the use of computers and computing in chemical education. We do this via this Newsletter, and by organizing and participating in symposia and workshops at regional and national meetings.
This Newsletter serves as a vehicle of communication with those interested in computing. Articles and information are provided for our readers. Ideally, readers communicate with each other by writing articles or short paragraphs describing their use of computers in chemical education. The QUERIES sections provide an opportunity for readers to ask and answer questions. The success of this Newsletter depends upon your willingness to participate in these activities.

Over a dozen C.C.C.E. National Computer Workshops have been held. Workshops are planned for the University of Kansas in August 1993 and at Bucknell University after the Biennial Meeting in August 1994.
C.C.C.E. activities are designed to meet the needs of chemical educators. You can help in identifying these needs. An open meeting of the Committee is planned for the Biennial Meetings in Davis.
