General Information about the Symposium
The documents making up this page can be viewed with Internet Explorer 5 and through Netscape versions 4 or 6. The recent version (6) of Netscape does NOT allow for downloading any Adobe files, including the registration files on this web page. I have contacted Netscape about this, and there is no fix in sight at the moment. Internet Explorer (free from Microsoft) and Netscape 4.x (free from Netscape) are able to download the forms and print them. If you require registration forms for the meeting and the hotel, and cannot download them from this site, email
Tom Bellows a note about what you need and he will send the forms to you via email. Any problems with the site can also be sent to him via the same email address.
