1. ISARS '98 Symposium

The 2nd Circular including the Call for Papers and Registration Form is being mailed this week. We apologize for the slight delay, and in order to compensate for this, the closing date for submitting abstracts has been extended to 25 February 1998. Those who are interested in participation (with or without presentation) are kindly asked to register until this date. Only registered participants will receive the 3rd Circular! The 2nd Circular is also accessible at our WWW site (

2. ISARS WWW site (

The ISARS web site has found a good acceptance. It appears that we were able to reach new people by this means. However, the feedback from the ISARS community itself was a little bit disappointing. I received very few contributions or suggestions for links. As the WorldWideWeb becomes more and more important, and - as I can observe with myself - becomes the first place to search for information, a good presence on the web will become almost a necessity soon. I am sure that already many of you have home pages where there research is described, their publications listed, etc. Please give me the URL of such pages so that I can link them into the ISARS web site. You are also invited to put links to ISARS into you own web pages (and it would be nice if you would let me know about it).

Also, we will continue to make all the ISARS ï98 Symposium information available on the web site.
