TO: Potential Participants for ACEDB 95 Conference and Workshop

FR: John McCarthy, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory

RE: Time, Place, Format, etc.
At the very successful ACEDB 94 Workshop last month in Montpellier, LBL was 
asked to help arrange next year's Workshop in California.  In order to begin 
this planning effort, I'd like to learn who might want to attend, and what 
preferences you might have as to dates, location, and meeting format, even 
though we may be constrained by site availability and other factors.

We are also exploring the possibility of getting financial support from DoE, 
NIH, NSF, USDA, and the European Community to help offset some of our costs, 
including scholarships and some travel support.

Could you please fill out the brief questionnaire below and return it to me as 
soon as possible? (this week would be best, if you're not on vacation).
If more than one person from your organization would like to attend,
please get each person to fill out and return a separate questionnaire.

The 1992 and 1993 ACEDB Conferences were three days long.  This year, 1994, 
the ACEDB Workshop was two weeks long, modeled on Physics workshops.  Some 
people have suggested that next year we might try to do both.  What would you 
prefer?  Please indicate one or both you would like to attend.

[ ] I would like to attend a three day ACEDB 95 Conference
[ ] I would like to attend a two week ACEDB 95 Workshop
[ ] Other (please specify):

[ ] the 2 week ACEDB Workshop should immediately follow the Conference
[ ] a 3 day ACEDB Conference should be held at another time of year

Conference  Time Comments: 

The 1992 Conference was held in May; the 1993 Conference was in August; and 
this year's workshop was the first two weeks of July.  In 1995, the Cold 
Spring Harbor meetings will be the second week of May , and the Hilton Head 
meeting is scheduled for September 16-20.  Would people like to have the ACEDB 
Workshop close to one of those meetings or at some other time?
