*Conference -  March 17-26, 2000

The conference will begin on Friday afternoon, March 17.  A typical conference day will consist of two plenary talks in the morning, and two talks in the afternoon; the afternoon talks will run in parallel sessions if needed.  This format will allow plenty of time for interaction outside of the talks.

There will be a banquet on Saturday, March 25.  At the banquet, the sixtieth birthdays of Peter Landweber and Stewart Priddy will be honored.  Talks on their work are planned during the last part of the conference.

If you are interested in attending the conference, please take a few moments to pre-registerHotel and Travel information is now available.

*Support for the conference is provided in part by the
National Science Foundation (INT-9815343), the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science
and the Johns Hopkins University.
