Dear Colleagues: Please take a moment to read this short message, in which
I'd like to draw your attention to two upcoming important conferences you
won't want to miss.

  o   ACM MULTIMEDIA'97 will take place November 9-13 in Seattle. The 40
      technical papers in the truly outstanding program cover all aspects
      of multimedia technology and systems, so no matter what your specialty
      you'll surely find much of interest here! Two great keynote talks by
      Brad Myers of CMU and Ben Shneiderman of the University of Maryland,
      and a reception at the Seattle Space Needle, will be highlights of the
      conference. And yes, YOU -CAN- AFFORD TO COME, even at this late date,
      because we've arranged incredibly cheap coast-to-coast zone fares with
      USAir which -DO NOT- require a Saturday night stay or way-in-advance
      purchase. For full details, check out the superb conference web site:

      If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me personally
      as General Co-Chair.

  o   ASSETS'98, the 3rd ACM/SIGCAPH Conference on Assistive Technologies,
      will take place April 15-17, 1998 at the Marina del Rey Hotel in Los
      Angeles (back-to-back with CHI'98). This is the premier international
      forum where researchers and developers from academia and industry
      meet to exchange ideas and report on new developments relating to
      computer-based systems to help people. The conference scope spans
      disabilities and special needs of ALL types; there are no parallel
      sessions, in order to encourage total group participation throughout
      the meeting (even meals are taken together). THERE IS STILL TIME TO
      SUBMIT a paper or to volunteer to participate in other ways - the
      deadline is November 14, 1997. For complete details, please see the
      conference web site:

      Or contact one of the lead organizers:

      General Chair:  Arthur I. Karshmer     (e-mail:  [log in to unmask])
      Program Chair:  Meera M. Blattner      (e-mail:  [log in to unmask])

I hope to see you at one or both of these great events. Thank you!  -Ephraim
