Subject: Graduate Conference

The following has been passed on to me by graduate students in
my department for posting. I am sending it to several lists so
I apologize in advance for duplication. I think this should be
encouraged. Think how many times when we have done some similar
task and have remarked, "they didn't have any classes on this in
graduate school." If you want to e-mail a message about the
Conference you may direct it to yet another graduate student,
