1. NEWS 
   From the Organizing Committee:
   The INNS Office has had a management change. We apologize for any delay, 
   confusion or inconvenience you may have experienced during transition.
   The Registration Deadline has been extended to MAY 16.
   Many of you know our new management from previous Congresses: 
   Talley Associates  (Att: Melissa Bishop)
   Address: 875 Kings Highway, Suite 200
   Woodbury, NJ 08096; Voice 609-845-1720; FAX 609-853-0411 
   You may use this FAX for Congress Registration.
   Details of the change will be presented Monday June 6, 5-6 pm during 
   the Presidential Speech. Your support is making WCNN'94 a success. 
         Signed: Paul Werbos, Bernard Widrow, Harold Szu
         
Should you have any specific recommendation about ways to make WCNN-94
more productive, please contact any Governors that you know or 
Dr. Harold Szu at (301) 390-3097; FAX (301) 390-3923; e-mail: 
hszu%ulysses at relay.nswc.navy.mil.  

To improve the structure of the Congress and achieve a more compact
schedule for attendees, several changes have been made since the
Preliminary Program:
A. Short Courses Start Sunday Morning June 5. 
   All Saturday Short Courses have been moved to Monday June 6, with the
   exception that Course [I] (J. Dayhoff) will be given Sunday 8AM - 12PM.
   To make room in the schedule for that change, Course [H] (W. Freeman) 
   moves from Sunday to Monday 8AM - 12PM.
   On Monday the Short Courses are concurrent with the Exposition.
B. The SPECIAL OFFER has been made more generous, to encourage students.  
   For each of your Short Course registrations you can give a colleague 
   in the same or lower-priced Registration  Category a FREE Short Course! 
   Enter his or her name on the Registration Form below ``TOTAL.'' 
   The recipient of the gift should indicate ``Gift from [your name]'' at  
   the time of registration. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PRE-REGISTERED,  arrange  
   the gift now by FAX to 609-853-0411.
