The ACE97 Program and Schedule (tentative) is now available
at http://probe.nalusda.gov:8000/ace97/ace97program.html.  A
copy is also appended to this message.  Note that the organizers
are looking for tutorial speakers for the following subjects: ACEDB
Query Language, Tablemaker, Map Displays, and the Sequence Display.
If you are willing to give a tutorial on one of these subjects, or are
willing to present a tutorial on a subject not listed in the program,
please contact Doug Bigwood at dbigwood at gig.usda.gov.

Also, some likely participants have been asking about registration for
the conference.  Dave Matthews is working feverishly to pin down the
exact costs and requirements and he hopes to have this information very
soon.  The organizers want to keep the costs low and thanks to funding
from USDA,NAL and Cornell we will be able to do this.  We will post a
message to this newsgroup when registration opens.  We do know that
registraton will close on July 7, so there will be plenty of time.
