Subject: Registration for ACH/ALLC '91

Dear Colleague:

I invite you to Tempe, Arizona, to attend ACH/ALLC '91, the
international conference that brings together members of the Association
for Humanities Computing and the Association for Literary and Linguistic
Computing, March 17-21, 1991.

March in Arizona is the "high" tourist season, so PLEASE take note of
the deadlines listed in the accompanying material. The various
discounts I have arranged require that arrangements be finalized well in
advance. Once the blocks of rooms I have reserved in the ASU
dormitories and local hotels are fully booked, you will have to pay
substantially higher regular rates. It may even be difficult to secure
accommodations at all!

You MUST register for the conference in order to stay in the dormitories
or to get the conference rate at the hotels. Please register, book your
lodging and tour preferences, and reserve a place at the banquet
immediately. Registration for the conference, dormitory lodging, and
the banquet, tours, and workshop can be done by check in US dollars; or
by VISA, Mastercard, or American Express. Please use the registration
form included with this mailing.

The dress code for this conference is casual. Hiking and walking shoes
are suitable for all occasions. Bring bathing suits and sunblock if you
want to swim, sunbathe, or play tennis or golf. Although the weather is
summery in Phoenix in March, if you plan to go with us to the Grand
Canyon after the conference, you need to allow for cold weather. Snow
can still fall in the Rockies in March.

I look forward to welcoming you to Arizona this March.

Best regards,

Daniel T. Brink
