Stuttgart is the state capital of Baden-W\"urttemberg in south-west
Germany. It was founded about 1000 years ago as ''Stuotgarden'', a stud
farm, and today it is the cultural and commercial centre of the state, with
almost 600 000 inhabitants. For centuries the city was the residence of the
dukes and kings of W\"urttemberg, and this epoch is much in evidence as you
stroll through the city centre.

One of the buildings of this epoch is the ''Haus der Wirtschaft'', the
primary ANLP-94 site. It is located just on the edge of the campus and is
just 5-minutes' walk to the city centre. Exhibitions, software
demonstrations and book exhibits will also be located at the ``Haus der
Wirtschaft''. Tutorials will be held on campus at Keplerstrasse 17. Net
access for participants will also be available there.

Conference information and registration forms are available in
ASCII and PostScript formats through ACL LISTSERV.

LISTSERV is a facility to allow access to an electronic
document archive by electronic mail. The ACL LISTSERV has been set up
at Columbia University's Department of Computer Science. Requests from
the archive should be sent as e-mail messages to

with an empty subject field and the message body containing the
request command. The most useful requests are "help" for general help
on using LISTSERV, "index acl-l" for the current contents of the ACL
archive and "get acl-l <file>" to get a particular file named <file>
from the archive. For example, to get an ACL membership form, a
message with the following body should be sent:

 get acl-l membership-form.txt

Answers to requests are returned by e-mail. Since the server may have
many requests for different archives to process, requests are queued
up and may take a while (say, overnight) to be fulfilled.

The ACL archive can also be accessed by anonymous FTP. Here is an
example of how to get a file by FTP (user typein is underlined):

 $ ftp
 Name ( anonymous
 --------- << not echoed
 ftp> cd acl-l
 ftp> cd Appliedacl94
 ftp> get
 ftp> quit
 $ uncompress
