The Fourth International Congress in Quantum Chemistry under the auspices of the International Academy of Molecular Quantum Science in Menton, France was arranged at Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden, during the period June 14 - 19, 1982, in close collaboration with the University of Florida. The previous congresses were held in Menton 1973, New Orleans 1976, and Kyoto 1979, and the 1985 congress is tentatively planned to be held in the province of Quebec, Canada. The Congress consisted of six symposia in various areas of quantum chemistry, solid-state theory, and quantum bi ology. The meeting was attended by about 450 scientists from 45 different nations, and a total of more than 300 scientific papers were presented. Even the poster contri butions were given some plenary time. These proceedings contain the text of the plenary lec tures as well as the chairmen's introductions, whereas the contributed papers will be published in the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry, (John Wiley & Sons, New York) in the regular January - April 1983 issues.
