The 117 articles during this paintings mirror the wide pursuits and top of the range of analysis of these who attended our convention. we want to thank the entire individuals for his or her tremendous cooperation in aiding us to accomplish this venture. Our private gratitude needs to visit the 3 those who have spent lots in their time long ago 12 months typing those volumes: Jackie Bell, Lise consistent, and Sandy Tarnowski. This paintings has been revealed from "camera prepared" reproduction produced by means of our Vax 785 laptop and QMS Lasergraphix printers, utilizing the textual content processing software program TEX. on the initiation of this undertaking, we have been neophytes within the use of the program. thanks, Jackie, Lise, and Sandy, for having the endurance and commitment had to entire this undertaking.
