                                August 12-14, 1992
        The Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) is conducting a three-day
        workshop on "Advanced Image Processing Methods in Electron
        Microscopy," August 12-14, 1992.  The workshop is funded by a grant
        from the Biomedical Research Technology Program of the National
        Center for Research Resources, National Institutes of Health.
        This workshop provides a theoretical and practical introduction to
        advanced methods in light and electron microscopic structure research
        in cellular and molecular biology. It combines lectures by experts
        with practical exercises in selected topics. The various aspects
        of integrating the PSC's Cray Y-MP8/832 and CM-2 in a modular image
        processing system also will be discussed and the use of the
        supercomputer for very computer-intensive tasks will be demonstrated.
        The workshop will utilize the MDPP image processing systems.
        These sessions will be conducted by Drs. Ross Smith and Dean
        Hillman of the New York University Medical Center.
        Previous supercomputing experience is not necessary.  This three-day
        workshop will include an optional half-day session on Tuesday, August
        11, led by PSC staff members.  This optional portion will cover UNICOS
        (Cray's version of the AT&T System V Unix operating system) and
        ULTRIX (DEC's Unix).
        Travel, meals, and hotel accommodations for U.S. academic participants
        are supported by the grant.  Enrollment is limited to 20 individuals.
        The deadline for submission of applications has been extended to
                           ----* June 29, 1992 *----
