ABOUT AUSTIN...

The conference will be held at the The Four Seasons Hotel, situated on
scenic Town Lake in downtown Austin.  The Four Seasons enjoys a
naturally restful setting while being close to evening entertainment.
Joggers know this area as the finest running park in Texas;

Just a few blocks away is the Sixth Street district, where a variety
of night spots offer live jazz, blues, country/western, reggae, swing
and rock music.  As the state capital of Texas, Austin contains many
city sights including the State Capitol, the University of Texas at
Austin, the L.B.J. Library, L.B.J.  National Wildflower Research
Center, Texas Memorial Museum and the Governor's Mansion.  Austin is
also a high-tech city with unique consortia such as MCC and Sematech,
and over 400 software companies and a notable presence of companies
such as AMD, Dell, IBM, Motorola, Schlumberger, Tandem and 3M.

Daytime temperatures during the last week of September are typically
