This specialist workshop was sponsored by CCP6 (the UK Collaborative Computational Project No. 6 on Heavy Particle Dynamics). The meeting focussed on the challenging problems associated with wide amplitude rovibrational bound state calculations in tetraatomic molecules and larger. Topics covered included: coordinate systems; derivation of exact kinetic energy operators; representation of potential energy surfaces; choice of basis functions; strategies such as the discrete variable representation and contraction schemes; large matrix diagonalisation methodologies; and opportunities offered by supercomputer architectures.

Participation was limited to about 30 keenly interested people, with 12 invited talks. The format was "Gordon Conference style", with sessions in the morning and evening but afternoons free.

Invited speakers were:
