 PARTICIPATION
 The number of participants is limited to 100. In selecting participants,
 the preference will be given to those who would have a presentation on
 the subject of the conference. If you would like to attend the
 conference, please submit a request as soon as possible, by e-mail only,
 to Ilya Vakser (vakser' at \`ams.stonybrook.edu) or Sandor Vajda
 (vajda' at \`enga.bu.edu). Include a brief (a few sentences) description of
 your research, your full affiliation, position (faculty, postdoc,
 student, etc.), address (email and regular), and the day-time phone
 number. If you would like to give a talk or present a poster, please
 include a half-page abstract. We will start contacting prospective
 participants after April 27 to let them know whether their application
 is accepted. If your application is accepted, we will communicate with
 you regarding the details of registration, accommodation, and travel.
 The early registration fee for the participants of the conference will
 be $250 ($150 for postdocs and students). Limited funds are available to
 support the participation of postdocs and students. The postdocs and
 students, who wish to be considered for the financial assistance, should
 indicate this in their application. The assistance will be provided in
 the form of reimbursement of travel expenses, after the conference.
 The details of the conference will be posted at the conference web site,
 http://reco3.ams.stonybrook.edu/conference2003 , which will
 be regularly
