[Moderators' note: we often find ourselves having to shorten conference announcements in order to post several in a single issue. So we'd like ask subscribers to keep such announcements to 100 lines if possible. We'd much prefer that the poster decide what to retain and what to delete. Thanks for your cooperation. --Helen & Anthony]
