We'd appreciate your limiting conference announcements to 150 lines, so that we can post more than 1 per issue. Please consider omitting information useful only to attendees, such as information on housing, transportation, or rooms and times of sessions. Please do not use abbreviations or acronyms for your conference unless you explain them in your text. Many people outside your area of specialization will not recognize them. Thank you for your cooperation.

Hotels in the SOAS area.

There are many hotels in the SOAS and British Museum area. For
reasonably priced hotels (around stlg50/$75 a night) we suggest the
President (0171-837-8844) and the Tavistock (0171-636-8383). Both
hotels are very close to SOAS, the British Museum, and West End
restaurants. Participants (other than the speakers) should make their
reservations directly with the hotels.
