----------------END OF CONFERENCE------------------------
 
THE POSTERS WILL BE ON DISPLAY ALL WEEK LONG!!!
 
 
INFORMATION:
 
	Tentative poster titles for Gene Stanley's PLENARY POSTER SESSIONS, 
should be sent by E-mail or FAX directly to Gene (HES at BU.EDU, 617-353-3783).  
These poster sessions will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings.  The 
posters will be on display all week long, and they will be displayed in the 
big, well-lighted, red school house. The poster boards are 4 ft. X 8 ft., so 
there will be plenty of room for your material.  More than one poster per 
person is also possible.
 
        We also want to emphasize as strongly as we can that EARLY
REGISTRATION is absolutely essential.  No applicants will be accepted
by the GRC after about 135 people have registered!!!!  Contact the GRC
office; phone (401)-783-4011 or -3372; FAX (401)-783-7644; E-MAIL
grc at grcmail.grc.uri.edu to obtain your registration forms.  The GRC
has streamlined the registration procedures.  For example, they can
take registration payments by FAX if you give your credit
card number on their form, sign it, and FAX it back.  We will also mail
out some registration forms to people who are definitely attending, or
to people who attended in 1994.  However, it is best to get your materials
yourself from the GRC people.
 
        We plan mini- or ground-zero review for most sessions.  These
will be presented by the session chairs.  The ground-zero reviews will
involve overviews of the talks to follow in each session.  The ground-
zero reviews WILL NOT involve talks by the session chairs about their
own work.  The ground-zero reviews are intended to introduce each session
for people in the audience who may not be familiar with the previous work
in the area of the session.
 
        We will also have two micro-reviews Monday evening and Wednesday
evening to save time for the poster sessions to follow.  In addition
we will have commentators (about 5 minutes) following the sessions on
Monday morning, Tuesday morning, and Wednesday evening.  The purpose
of the commentators is to present a summing up, as well as to indicate
problems, or regions of work which should be exploited in the future.
 
        Our Thusday evening speaker, after the banquet, will be
Professor Ben Widom from Cornell University.  This will really be
a special treat for all of us.  Professor Widom will tell us about
developments in "CRITICAL PHENOMENA" from the past to the present.
 
        Our mixer will be held Sunday afternoon starting roughly
at 4:30 or 5:00 p.m. before the full dinner on Sunday evening.
This year you will get a dinner, and not a mini-dinner, on Sunday
evening.  Gene Stanley and I hope to greet all of you in person at
the mixer.
 
        Adrian Parsegian is helping us with the reception, and he
is also the first session chair, Sunday night.  We could hardly have
gotten a better person for both assignments.  He has assured me that
he will pick up the liquid refreshments for us on his way to the
conference.
 
        Remember, REGISTER SOON.  We hope to see you in August.
 
 
                                       Sincerely yours,
