Third annual ETSG
conference: Registration for the third ETSG conference, to be held
in Brussels on 14-16 September 2001, is now open. You should register
by 30 April 2001. Emails regarding papers will be sent out at the end of
June. REMEMBER to book your lodgings. You will not be allowed to sleep
in the meeting rooms (except during sessions.) Further details are
available on the ETSG web page: www.etsg.org.
Funding: Please remember that we are running ETSG on a financial shoestring. Funding is limited. Within our budget, we do try to accommodate those needing funds, and hence allocate funds based on need. When registering for ETSG conferences, please try to use other sources of funds if they are available.
Fourth ETSG conference: The ETSG board met in Copenhagen last June, and has made preliminary plans to hold the ETSG 2002 at Kiel. We will post further details once we have made a decision on exact dates.
