I. Registration

     The organizers of SAS 99 report that they have received something 
like 270 abstracts for the meeting. The registration deadline is drawing 
near, so that you will want to dig out the hardcopy Call for papers or 
download the electronic copy from the meeting web site. To refresh your 
memory this is http://sas99.bnl.gov/sas99.

     You need to send them snail mail to confirm your payment method, so 
it is wise to get on this right away.
