Because of our interest in expanding the conference, together with
several requests for an extension of the deadline for the call for
papers, the Call for the SCTPLS annual conference has been extended
to April 15, 1996.

Those who have submitted abstracts already will be contacted soon.
Regular registration materials will be circulated later this month
as initially planned.
