Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the organizing committee of SAS99, I am pleased to invite 
to attend the XIth International Conference on Small-Angle Scattering to 
be held at Brookhaven National Laboratory from May 17 to May 20, 1999.  
I also invite you to submit abstracts of the papers you plan to contribute
describing recent exciting results or theoretical and technological 
developments in your field.  
The deadline for abstract submission is March 1, 1999.

The conference begins on Monday with a plenary session on innovations 
in theory and technique and extends to Thursday, a full conference day 
with four parallel sessions.  Morning plenary session will explore 
in scattering and outline themes that will be explored thoroughly by 
contributed and invited papers in parallel sessions.  Suggestions offered 
by the distinguished International Advisory Board outline many program 
ideas, and the members of the Scientific Program Committee are working 
hard to combine these with its insights into important scientific 
developments to create from your contributions and invited lectures an 
exciting program. 

The Thursday plenary session is a tribute Paul W. Schmidt, who passed 
on October 6, 1998.  His outstanding contributions to small-angle 
will be honored and continued by invited lectures. 
The organizers aim to make SAS-99 attractive to young scientists.  A 
based scientific program, integrated poster sessions, affordable on-site 
housing and student registration fee, as well as opportunities to 
with established scientists at the conference dinners are part of this 
endeavor.  An introductory workshop to small-angle scattering organized 
S.H. Chen, and one on data and software exchange organized by J.D. Barnes 
and T. Irving, are designed to address practical aspects of structure 
by small-angle scattering.

Accompanying persons will find that Brookhaven National Laboratory on 
Island is conveniently located for touring beaches, New England style 
villages, the Hamptons, vineyards, outlet malls, and many other 
New York City, with its theaters, shops, and museums is also within reach 
just an hour away by train or bus. The organizers will offer both guided 
tours and tips for individual outings.

For more information about the conference, on-line registration, and
electronic abstract submission please visit our website at:
or refer to the printed Call for Papers that will be mailed today.
Address your questions or requests to the Conference Cooordinator or 
to any of the organizers.

I am looking forward to seeing you at the conference.
