The meeting will follow the Contemporary Inorganic Conference -II 
(Texas A & M, March 13-15,, 
so come to one and stay for the other! 

This year we plan to hold a "hands on" workshop.   There will be two 
SMART 1000's available in our 2000 square foot laboratory, so bring 
your problem crystals.   There will be experts on our 10 PC/NT/SGI
platforms to reduce, solve, crunch, refine, curse-at and maybe even 
finish your problem structures/life/whatever.  The workshop will be 
an informal multi-session gathering with all events running simultaneously.  
There is plenty of room for posters and rooms available for impromptu 
seminars/discussions so bring your ideas.  Bring your crystals/data/computers 
and find someone to help or teach.  As always there will be good talk to 
lubricate the mind and coffee to lubricate the rest of you.  The workshop is 
free and open to all.
