[Moderators' Note: As most of you know, we stopped posting full
conference programs in response to complaints that
the length of these submissions broke too many mailers. We're
making an exception here because a miscommunication with Alan Munn
left him in the position of posting an ESCOL announcement without
the date. Our apologies, Alan.
And, for a statement of current policy, as well as a request for
suggestions, see the Moderators' Message in the next issue.]
