Call for Papers:

Contributed Papers are invited for presentation at the 18th Annual Meeting of the CAMS/SCMA, May 30 to June 1, 1997. Papers in all areas of Applied Mathematics are welcome.

Abstracts of Contributed Papers (including Title, Author, Affiliation and brief description) should be submitted by April 30, 1997, either electronically (Latex preferred) to Dr. A. T. Lawniczak, Chair, Scientific Program Committee, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, N1G 2W1. All contributions will be reviewed by the Scientific Program Committee for presentation.

Contributed Papers will be presented as either a Lecture Session or a Poster Session format. A prize will be awarded for the best Graduate Student Poster. Authors should state their preference of format; however, the Scientific Program Committee reserves the right to make the final assignment of session.
