               [  if  (if),   conj.    1.   conjunction  ]
               [  introducing   a  clause  (called  the  ]
               [  protasis)  of condition  or  supposi-  ]
               [  tion  or   expressing  a  hypothesis;  ]
               [  2. supposing that;  3. provided that;  ]
               [  4. assuming that.                      ]

The general theme for the  1993 ACM Computer Science  Conference is  if.
The focus is on possibility:
    ``if I could . .  .'' ``if there were . . .'' ``if only . . .''.
In  computer science,  we're faced  with an increasing demand to address
and resolve ifs.  Some of these ifs serve to stimulate our own thoughts,
goals, and ambitions.   The conference will explore some of these ifs in
the following four sub-topics:

                  o   Instructional Frameworks
                  o   Infinite      Functionality
                  o   Industrial    Frontiers
                  o   Intelligent   Futures

Papers and tutorials are solicited in,  but not  limited  to,  the areas  
indicated below.  Tutorials, formal presentations, and abstract sessions
will be selected from submissions.


  Curriculum, multi-media, program visualization, instructional
  resources, constructivism, curriculum consortia, restructuring,
  instantiation of professional ethics and social responsibilities.


  Virtual reality, human/machine interface, programming paradigms,
  parallelism, knowledge bases, hypertext, computer graphics.


  Object-oriented programming, interfaces, case tools, VLSI, CAD/CAM,
  functional divisibility, software engineering, applications


  Artificial intelligence, neural networks, genetic algorithms,
  expert systems, cognitive modeling, speech and language understanding

In addition to the paper presentations,  panel sessions,  and tutorials,
the program will also include featured talks from well-known experts.

               CSC '93 Student Poster Session Competition

The  student poster  session competition  is a new event  with  CSC '93.
Poster sessions offer students a chance to meet others in their field as
well as provide employers  with an opportunity to meet  the top students
from the schools represented.  Students whose abstracts are nominated by
their departments  and  accepted  by the committee  will  present  their
research in poster session format.  Competition will be conducted in two
categories,  graduate and undergraduate.  Prizes will be awarded  on the
basis of  peer review to take place  during the conference.  Each school
may nominate  a maximum  of three students papers, limited to two in any
one  category.    The  application   deadline  is   November  30,  1992.
Notification  of  acceptance  will  be  no  later  than  December  31st.
For further details and instructions for submitting, contact:
