         Submit 3 copies of abstracts, creative pieces, or symposia
proposals. Include a WordPerfect 6.x compatible or ASCII disk copy of
your work identified with your name, affiliation and paper title when
submitting by regular mail.  If your abstract includes symbols that are
difficult to transcribe, a disk copy is especially important.
         Limit your abstract to 250 words (c. 1 page).  Abstracts of
accepted papers will be included in the conference program.
However, because our staff is strictly volunteer, we can not
promise to include abstracts which are longer than the 250 word
limit.
