IUCr 1996 Report - Commission on International Tables The major event in 1996 was the Seattle Congress. During this congress, the Commission on International Tables held an open meeting (12 August) and three closed meetings, in addition to numerous personal contacts between volume editors, technical editors and authors. The open Commission meeting featured six lectures on the status of the International Tables volumes published and in preparation. Reports about this meeting are available on the World Wide Web (WWW) Commission page (see below) and in the Newsletter of the British Crystallographic Association (No. 58, September 1996; No. 59, December 1996).

At Seattle, the Executive Committee approved two new International Tables volumes: Volume F on Macromolecular Crystallography, editors M. G. Rossmann and E. Arnold; Volume G on Crystallographic Information, editors B. McMahon and S. R. Hall.

In the second half of the year, the International Tables home page for the WWW was prepared. It consists of two parts:

The publication page contains information about the published volumes and how to order them. It is located in Chester as part of the IUCr home page and available at http://www.iucr.org/. It is presently being maintained and updated by S. E. King.

The Commission page lists the members of the Commission on International Tables and their editorial responsibilities. It describes the contents of all published and approved volumes and reviews their status. The Commission page is located in Tel Aviv, Israel, with U. Shmueli as Webmaster, and can be reached at http://crystal.tau.ac.il/xtal/comit/comit.html.
