Subject: 97.07.20 1997 Gordon Conference on Catalysis



     Dear Catalysis Scientist:

     The Gordon Conference on Catalysis is regarded by many as the premier
     annual conference in the field.  Some of you may have heard that the
     Gordon Conference administration had sought to change the conference
     frequency to a biennial event rather than an annual meeting this past
     year.  Although this had been proposed, the Gordon Board of Trustees
     decided to retain the annual frequency of the meeting, at least for
     the near future.  Consequently, the 1997 Gordon Conference on
     Catalysis WILL be held, but at a time and place different from the
     usual time/location.

     Feel free to copy and distribute the announcement and program.

     See you in New Hampshire!

     Vince Durante
