The mini-symposium is organized by Pavel Pevzner (Penn State), David Sankoff 
(U. of Montreal) and Michael Waterman (USC) and supported by the Sloan 
Foundation and the National Science Foundation. To request time  for a brief 
(10 minute) communication, contact Pavel Pevzner at pevzner at cse.psu.edu 
(phone  (814) 863-3599). Denny Research Building (DRB) is located at the 
corner of 36th Place and Vermont.  The Davis Auditorium is located in the 
Gerontology Building (GER), adjacent to parking structure near DRB. If you 
drive, enter USC at this corner (Gate 6), and parking will be arranged. 
Within walking distance of the USC is the University Hilton (213) 748-4141.  
For other information about the USC campus contact Kengee Lewis at 
klewis at hto.usc.edu or call (213) 740-2409.
