         (Preliminary Announcement)


The first two days of the workshop (June 20-21) are organized in 
collaboration with the Departments of Biology, Biomedical Sciences, 
and Computer Science at the University of New Mexico.  The 
minisymposium of the third day (June 24) is part of the SIAM Conference 
on Discrete Mathematics, Albuquerque, NM, June 22-25 1994.  The first 
two days of the workshop are open to the public and there will be no
registration fee.  The minisymposium will require registration at the 
SIAM Conference.
