FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

23rd Annual Workshop on Crop Simulation

The 23rd Annual Workshop on Crop Simulation organized by the
Biological Systems Simulation Group will be cosponsored by the
USDA/ARS, U.S. Water Conservation Laboratory, Phoenix, Arizona,
and Divisions A3 and C3 (Agronomic Modeling and Crop Ecology,
Production and Management) of the American Society of
Agronomy, Madison, Wisconsin. The Workshop will be held on
April 5-8, 1993 at Tempe, Arizona.

The Workshop will consist of oral and poster papers and "hands-on"
software demonstration sections. Speakers will be given latitude
to address a broad range of topics related to the abiotic and biotic
simulation of the soil-plant-atmosphere-continuum, particularly
plant physiology and soil physical processes, and the influence of
global change on system behavior. Additional topics of interest are
application of plant-growth models with geographic  information
systems for large-scale assessment of land use. However, papers
on a broad range of topics related to the simulation of biological
systems are welcome. The informal nature of the Workshop forum
will allow ample time for discussion and comments. Pleas submit
a one-page abstract by March 8, 1993 to:

Gerard W. Wall
USDA/ARS, U.S. Water Conservation Laboratory

Abstract format requires single-spaced, one-inch margins, camera-
ready, with author's affiliations and addresses included. All abstracts
submitted by mail will be published in the Proceedings of the
Workshop. Fax copies of abstracts will be accepted as proof of intent
to submit a paper, but the original must be sent by mail. Fax-submit-
ted abstracts will not be published in the Proceedings of the
Workshop. Please state in a cover letter whether you wish to present
the paper orally (15 minute limit), in poster form, or as a software
demonstration. If you elect to present a software demonstration,
please advise us what hardware you will need. A copy of the
program will be mailed on March 15, 1993.

The Workshop will be held at the Tempe Mission Palms, Radisson
Hotel, 60 E. 5th Street, Tempe, Arizona (602-894-1400, Fax 602-
968-7677). A block of rooms has been reserved in the name of
"Crop Simulation Workshop" at the special rate of $72.00 for a
single and $82.00 for a double occupancy per night. The
aforementioned rate includes state and local taxes, presently, 9.05%.
You should make your hotel reservations by March 5th to obtain

hotel include: Howard Johnson Hotel, 225 E. Apache Blvd., Tempe,
Arizona, 85287, 602-967-9431, single $62.00, double $69.00
per night, Holiday Inn, 915 E. Apache Blvd., Tempe, Arizona,
85281, 602-968-3451, single $63.00 and double $73.00 per night.

A registration charge of approximately $75.00 will cover ancillary
expenses incurred during the workshop, such as computers,
poster rentals, and meeting room charges.

Air fares are considerably cheaper if you spend a Saturday night
at your destination. The Tempe Mission Palms hotel will
