APPLICATION PROCEDURE

	[1]  Make formal application to Gordon Research Conference to one of

		Mail delivery:

		Conference Application
		Gordon Research Conferences
		University of Rhode Island
		P.O. Box 984
		West Kingston, RI 02892-0984

		Commercial delivery (FedEx, DHL, UPS, etc.)

		Conference Application

	[2]  Send written copy by mail to

		James C. Weaver
		20A-128, MIT
		Cambridge, MA 02139

	     or by email to

		grc_copy at geldrop.mit.edu

	     Sending us a copy of your application is important, because
	     in the past some applications apparently were misdirected,
	     and then lost.  If we do not know early that you applied, it
	     may be too late to help by the time we learn of a problem.

POSTERS - Participants are encouraged to present recent and ongoing work;
          a number of these will be selected for brief oral presentation
          and discussion (see PROGRAM)
