Within the past few years, computer graphics has played a decisive role in transforming the field of molecular modeling into an international industry. While computer scientists are conversant in the language of their own discipline, they are often unfamiliar with the terminology and unique graphical constructs of physical scientists. Similarly, physical scientists are often unfamiliar with the latest paradigms and technological advances in graphical computing. The successful marriage of Chemistry and Computer Graphics is an outstanding model of technology transfer and cross-disciplinary fertilization. Drawing on chemistry visualizations performed at the Cornell Theory Center, this workshop covers some of the terminology, tools and current problems that have evolved at the boundary between these two fields.
