    There will be a number of parallel sessions and poster sessions. We will accommodate as many requests for oral presentations as possible. Contributed papers are welcomed. They should be submitted as postscript files, preferably encoded using the uufiles utility, which can be obtained from the Los Alamos archive or the conference home page. The length should be a one or two A4 pages. The name of the author who will present the contribution should be underlined. Deadline for receipt: 30th November, 1999. Submission by airmail is also acceptable, but the contribution must reach Adelaide by 30th November, 1999. All registered contributors will be notified of whether the paper has been accepted for oral or poster presentation by 8th February, 2000. (Note that the date has been moved back to allow for a few late contributions. We expect that all requests for an oral presentation will be able to be accomodated.
