 4) To accomodate as many papers as possible, we have
 begun the practice of selecting alternates to fill in
	 slots created by cancellations. The status of
	 alternate is inconvenient for some contributors, but
	 welcomed by others. Please indicate whether, if your
	 paper is not one of the 90 initially selectd for
	 presentation, you would be willing to be considered
	 as an alternate. (If you indicate that you are
	 willing to be considered, this does not commit you to
	 accepting alternate status if it should be offered to you.)

Please include a self-addressed, stamped postcard for acknowledgment
of receipt. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent by
late July. Pre-registration materials and preliminary schedule will
be available in late August 1996.

All authors who present papers at the conference will be invited to
contribute their papers to the Proceedings Volumes. Those papers will
be due in January, 1997.

Note: All conference papers will be selected on the basis of abstracts
submitted. Although each abstract will be evaluated individually, we
will attempt to honor requests to schedule accepted papers together in
group sessions.
