SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS
-----------------------
DEAD-LINE JUNE 15, 1996

Applications should preferably be sent by electronic mail. Fax and postal
submissions will also be accepted. Applications should include an abstract
describing the work done, a title and a list of authors which indicates which
one is the contact person. The contact person should include his postal
address, electronic mail address, and telephone and fax numbers. THE ABSTRACT
PLUS ALL ACCOMPANYING INFORMATION SHOULD FIT ON ONE PAGE. An abstract booklet
will be prepared from these submissions so reasonable care should be taken in
preparing them (late submissions may not be included in the abstract booklet).
Please follows the template given hereafter (PLAIN ASCII TEXT IS MANDATORY).
Approved E-mail abstracts will be available on the WEB.

The application should contain an indication of the subgroup which most
closely
matches the topic of the paper (i.e., 1-Software Engineering, 2-Artificial
Intelligence, 3-Symbolic Manipulation). Papers which the author believes are
suitable for the workshop but which do not fit precisely into any of the three
subgroups will also be considered.

All applicants will receive an initial confirmation of receipt, which does
not necessarily indicate acceptance. Final notification of acceptance will be
done after the papers have been reviewed.

Past experience has shown that we will probably not be able to fit in
all accepted papers for oral presentation. If so, we will try to retain
those papers with the broadest general interest for oral presentation, and
encourage authors of papers of more specific interest to consider presentation
in the poster sessions. Applications directly to the poster sessions can
also be made. Presentations of a tutorial or review nature are also possible.
