Speakers, poster presenters, industrial vendor exhibits, and conference 

Participants presenting talks or posters are expected to submit abstracts
by April 5, 1992.  A booklet of abstracts will be made available to all
participants at the conference.

Speakers and poster presenters are invited to prepare appropriate
manuscript for the conference proceedings.  The manuscript may be
submitted electronically or in hardcopy.  The deadline is August 15,
1992 (2 months after the conference).  Contributors will receive
complimentary copies of the proceedings and participants can buy the
proceedings at half price from the publisher.

St. Petersburg Beach is about 20 miles away from the Tampa
International Airport.  Participants are encouraged to fly into this
airport and then take a shuttle (appox. $11.00) to the TradeWinds
Hotel, which is located at 5500 Gulf Boulevard, St. Petersburg Beach,
FL 33706.  Conference sessions will be held in the hotel auditorium
itself so that participants do not have to rush and can afford a few
hours more sleep or afford short rest between sessions!

Tampa International Airport is rated as one of the world's most convenient 
airport and is located approximately 30 minutes from the hotel via I-275.  
St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Aiport, 25 minutes from the hotel, 
is also served by many airlines.  For Limo/shuttle service, call The Limo, 
Inc., (813) 572-1111.

A block of rooms has been reserved at the TradeWinds Hotel.  Participants are 
responsible for reserving the rooms for themselves by calling   Tel.: (813) 
367-6461, FAX.: (813) 360-3848.  When making reservations, be sure to mention 
you will be attending the conference on Bioinformatics sponsored by Florida 
State University so that you will get a reduced rate of approx. $75. (Ms. Randi
Blanton, Manager, Corporate & Association Sales, TradeWinds on St. Petersburg 

The TradeWinds Hotel spans 12 acres on the West Coast of Florida, directly
on the warm and tranquil Gulf of Mexico.  It is a six-story resort hotel with 
381 guest rooms and 25,000 total square feet of meeting and function space to 
accommodate groups of 10 to 800 people.

The location also offers groups many recreational opportunities and
outstanding meeting facilities, spacious guest accommodation and warm,
friendly professional service.  All of these elements combine to
create an environment where everyone seems to absorb information
quicker, respond more positively to new ideas and develop a renewed
sense of purpose.

Each meeting room has individual lighting and air conditioning/heating
as well as electrical outlets, telephone jacks and computer hook-ups.
A full range of audio-visual equipment is available, from podiums and
microphones to rear-screen projections and a responsive and
professional audio-visual staff is on hand to help plan meetings.

The TradeWinds Hotel is also close to area attractions: Busch Garden,
Adventure Island, Sea World, Universal Studios Florida, Cypress
Gardens, Walt Disney World Resort (Epcot Center, Magic Kingdom, MGM
Studios, Pleasure Island, Typhoon Lagoon), and others.  These
attractions, of course, are of secondary importance to the conference.
They do, however, provide excellent activities for family members, or
something for conference participants to explore after the conference.
