STRATEGIC TECHNOLOGIES IN
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

SEAMU93 will provide a central forum for discussions on the use of
strategic 
computing  technologies in research & development. The conference will 
encompass presentations by  end users from industry, academia, and the 
government on advanced applications of the Macintosh in scientific and 
engineering problem solving. From conceptual analysis to applied
research to 
product development, separate tracks will focus on:
	
	-  Scientific visualization and image processing
	-  Computer aided chemistry and biotechnology
	-  Data Acquisition and process control
	-  Developer Tools and techniques
	
All papers must be original, objective, and noncommercial. They will be
published 
after the conference by MacSciTech. All papers and presentations will
be in 
English.

SEAMU93 GUIDELINES

SEAMU93 will focus on Strategic Technologies in Research & Development,
and will 
serve to stimulate the interchange of real solutions to current
problems. Leading-
edge users of Macintoshes as stand-alone computational engines or as
networked 
clients of host computers and high-end workstations will discuss
general 
productivity needs as well as specialized functions.

SEAMU93 will be held the day immediately prior to MacWorld Expo Boston
and will 
provide attendees with an opportunity to interact with peers, Apple
Computer, and 
vendors of scientific and engineering software and hardware. SEAMU93
will include 
its own table-top exhibition where third-party developers will
demonstrate their 
latest products. The conference is open to all scientific and
engineering users. The 
fees for SEAMU93 are: $119, MacSciTech members; $169, non-members; $49,

students.

Technical Sessions
------------------------
The SEAM'93 program will consist of one intensive day of technical
sessions (8am-
9pm) and will include invited talks, contributed papers, and panel
discussions.
All sessions will be approximately 1.5 hours in length. Invited and
contributed 
papers will have 15-20 minutes each for oral presentations and
questions-and-
answers within their assigned session. A number of Macintoshes will be
available 
for those wishing to present their paper electronically. 

Technical Paper Abstracts
--------------------------------
Original papers are solicited that have not been previously presented
and that 
describe technical contributions in areas as broadly described by the
topics on the 
preceding page. Each presenter must submit a paper title and a 100-word
abstract. 
Please note that commercial product descriptions are not acceptable for
the 
technical program. 

The submission of an abstract will be viewed as a commitment to present
at the 
technical meeting. The abstract will be reproduced in the final
conference program. 
The date and time of presentation will be determined when the program
committee 
meets to review submissions.

Abstracts should be descriptive in nature and accompanied by the
authorUs name, 
affiliation, return address, telephone number, and any e-mail
addresses. The 
abstract should also indicate whether the submission is for a paper
presentation or 
panel discussion.

The presentation title and abstract may be submitted by mail, fax,
e-mail, or by 
Macintosh floppy disk. Disk and e-mail submissions may be made in text,

Microsoft Word, or MacWrite II formats. Mail and disk submissions
should be sent 
to:
SEAM'93, c/o MacSciTech
49 Midgley Lane, Worcester, MA 01604
Fax (508) 795-1636

E-mail submissions may be sent to:
Rscitech at ra.nrl.navy.milS on the Internet
or to RSciTechMacS on America Online.
E-mail or floppy disk submissions are strongly encouraged in the
interest of 
efficiency 
and timeliness.

Deadlines
------------
 The deadline for submission of the 100-word abstract of the paper and
author 
information is April 1, 1993. The abstract should be succinct and
informative; it 
may contain a  figure. 

The deadline for submission of the full paper and signed form allowing
us to reprint 
the paper on the conference CD-ROM  is June 1, 1993. Papers must be
submitted 
in order to present at SEAMU93 and must be in electronic format (text,
Microsoft 
Word, or MacWrite II with EPS, TIFF, GIF, or PICT graphics). Papers
should be 
sufficiently detailed to cover the topic.
Note: If you will be participating in a panel discussion, an electronic
copy of your 
presentation is due in place of a paper. The presentation will be
reproduced on the 
conference CD-ROM.
	
MacSciTechUs SEAM conference committee is always looking to develop
new, 
interesting topics. If you would like to propose a particular topic for
SEAM, please 
let us know.

Conference CD-ROM
--------------------------
MacSciTech will publish a SEAMU93 Conference CD-ROM shortly following
the 
conference. The CD-ROM will contain a full set of proceedings
(abstracts, papers, 
and presentations), as well as relevant public domain/shareware
software, and 
commercial product demonstrations. All paid SEAMU93 attendees will
receive a free 
copy. Others may purchase a copy at a to-be-established price. If you
are 
interested in submitting software for the CD-ROM, contact the
MacSciTech office.

MacSciTech
----------------
SEAMU93 is organized and sponsored by MacSciTech, the Macintosh
Scientific and 
Technical Users Association, and its Developer Advisory Council.
MacSciTech is an 
independent, professional association of over 1500 scientists and
