This is the first announcement regarding the ACEDB 1997 Conference

are
known now.

NOTE: If you are planning on attending please send a message to Doug 
Bigwood <dbigwood at gig.usda.gov> so that we can plan accordingly.  Thank
you.

Location:  Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA

Dates:  July 27 through August 9

Major Sponsors:  USDA Plant Genome Initiative (ARS/NAL) and Cornell
University

Format:  Similar to ACE95, but the program is not set (Formal
Conference:  2-3
days of presentations, 1-2 days of tutorials - Workshop:  remainder).  A
future announcement will cover the details for submitting papers for
presentation.  Workshop topics will also be solicited.

Costs:

	Registration Fee:  As low as possible (hopefully not more than $100
for the full 2 weeks and $50 for the formal conference).  Credit cards
will be
accepted.

	Housing (dormitory):  $18/night single, $15/night double (per person)
- hotels are available close to campus for those wishing more luxurious
accommodations.

	Meals:  A meal plan is available for a campus cafeteria (costs to be
announced), several eating establishments are available close by.  We
are
looking into having a continental breakfast served in the dormitory each
day
(this would add a small cost).  There will be a morning and afternoon
coffee
break each day.

Registration Deadline:  June 13 (registration *will* be limited, but
hopefully
the limit will allow us to accommodate all who wish to attend).
Registration forms will be available soon.
