The Registration form for ACE97 has now been placed on the ACE97 Home Page,
http://probe.nalusda.gov:8000/ace97.html.  A text copy is appended below.

Please note that you cannot register by email.  Payment must accompany the
registration form, either a check or a signed credit card authorization as
hard copy (or fax).

If in addition you feel an urge to send a copy of the registration by email
you may do so (matthews at greengenes.cit.cornell.edu), and it would be
somewhat helpful in our planning.  But the required form is the paper one.

We're looking forward to welcoming you to Ithaca and ACE97 !!

- Dave

  ACE97 HOUSING DETAILS

  Cascadilla Hall

     Cascadilla Hall is one of the oldest student residences at Cornell, and
     one of the most recently renovated, retaining its classic exterior but
     making it very comfortable and attractive inside. Perched on the edge
     of scenic Cascadilla Glen, it is conveniently located less than a block
     from the Hollister Computer Facility to the north and the Collegetown
     eating / shopping / services area on the south. One floor of Cascadilla
     Hall (45 rooms) has been reserved for us.

     The rooms are equipped with telephones, and local calls are free.
     Housekeeping service consists of bed linens and a towel exchange once
     per week. It does not include daily bed making, room cleaning, or
     wake-up call service. The Hall is not air conditioned. If the weather
     is warm, electric fans are available for rent ($12).

     To reserve a room in Cascadilla Hall, fill out the Housing section of
     the form above and submit it with your registration.

        * Collegetown Motor Lodge, 607-273-3542, Fax 607-272-3542
