Dear Friends,

after having had this workshop nine years in Vienna from 1991-1999, it started circulating among Leipzig 2000, Dublin 2001, Debrecin 2002, and Yale University 2003. This year it is back to Leipzig again from Thursday, 3 June, to Saturday, 5 June 2004. We would be glad if many of the regular visitors (Stammgäste) of the previous meetings would also enjoy coming to Leipzig this year. As in previous years the idea of the workshop is to provide a forum for a healthy exchange of ideas and to meet in a relaxed atmosphere in Leipzig in late spring.

Please let us know whether you will join us and send a preliminary title of your contribution. We will also have a poster session with plenty of discussion time with refreshments and encourage you to make use of this opportunity.

Concerning your travel arrangements we recommend to arrive in Leipzig already on Wednesday evening, 2 June, and depart on Sunday, 6 June. We plan to meet in one of the many Leipzig pubs upon arrival, have an excursion on Friday afternoon, and enjoy Leipzig at night after the last talk. The conference will start at 9:00 on Thursday, 3 June, and end around 18:00 on Saturday, 5 June.

We ask you to make use of WWW registration. Details on locations, accomodations and schedule will be available from our WWW page. In view of tourism and limited hotel capacity at moderate prices in Leipzig please try to meet the


Feel free to forward this announcement to interested colleagues. We hope to welcome you in Leipzig.
