Content-Length: 20625
X-Lines: 524

Dear Colleagues:

I would appreciate your assistance in distributing the appended
two conference announcements (Call For Papers) to your colleagues.

The two conferences are:

1. The 1997 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed
Processing Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'97).

2. The International Conference on Imaging Science, Systems, and
Technology (CISST'97).

We believe that the parallel/distributed processing researchers and
the imaging community can both benefit from each other's expertise.
Therefore, we have scheduled both conferences at the same time and
location (Las Vegas, June 30 - July 2, 1997) for the benefit of
those who would like to exchange research ideas with the other
research community.

Any help in publicizing the two conferences would be most appreciated.

Kindest regards,
Hamid
