          SPECULATIONS IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
          SPECIAL ISSUE ON THE FUTURE OF COMPUTING

          INVITATION

          You are hereby cordially invited to submit a manuscript for
          a volume on the Future of Computing edited by C. A.
          Pickover.  This is to be published in a special issue of
          Speculations in Science and Technology, with probable repub-
          lication of the volume as a book.

          Speculations in Science and Technology is a refereed inter-
          disciplinary journal.  Now in its 14th year of publication,
          this international journal has provided a forum for wide-
          ranging, imaginative but always well-based discussions of
          novel ideas in science and technology.  A specimen copy of
          this journal can be requested from Science and Technology
          Letters, 12 Clarence Road, Kew, Surrey TW9 3NL England.

          This special issue will contain topics such as the future of
          computing in art, education, mathematics, recreation, eco-
          nomics, biology, computer graphics, physics, chemistry, and
          other fields.  Computer hardware issues may also be dis-
          cussed.

          I know you are busy; however, your paper need only be a few
          pages long (about 3,500 words).  Alternatively, you may sub-
          mit a longer paper if you wish -- or suggest a topic you
          would like to discuss.  Papers are due by May 31, 1991, with
          publication around October, 1991.  I would appreciate self-
          contained, comprehensive papers focussing on topics of a
          broader nature than is usually found in research papers.
          Please be sure to introduce your field in the beginning of
          your paper.  The use of black-and-white illustrations and
          figures is highly encouraged.  All papers will be refereed.

          Please send me a tentative title, abstract, and possible
          length of your contribution by January 15, 1990.
