Note: This conference is a rescheduling of the conference originally scheduled for October, 1988 but cancelled after the United States Department of Commerce decided that the material was too sensitive to allow non-American citizens to read (including the material written by the Canadians on the committee). Because of this, the conference has been moved to Canada, which doesn't have a complete Freedom of Speech written into it's constitution, but has better things to do than worry about ways of circumventing civil rights. Americans having trouble getting their papers cleared for distribution at the conference should contact Professor Shikele about setting up a direct uucp link for the troff source.
