Here's some more information on and a program of the seventh
symposium on statistical software, which will be held in Utrecht,
the Netherlands, November 9th, 1995. The theme of the 
symposium is "Software and Methods for Random Coefficient

The symposium was originally geared towards Dutch statisticians, 
but we think that it may be of interest to others because
*    Six out of seven presentations will be held in English [and
     the two invited speakers are British].
*    The subject, software for random coefficient models, is
     rather topical.

This message was crossposted to several lists; if you receive it
more than once, I apologize for bothering you.
