Subject: Next Conference

Dear colleagues,

thanks for the interest you showed in the "Virtual Reality
Vienna'93". We are now proud to present a new conference, slightly
moved from Vienna (Austria) to Stuttgart (Germany), bigger and
hopefully of even more quality!

This conference is actually the fusion of the three biggest
Virtual Reality conferences in Europe. Expect the best...

Any suggestion and proposal is welcome.
