Dear colleague:

Here is the prliminary program of this combined conference:


that will be help in Florence, Italy, 8-11 March 1998.
Since their timeline for producing the preliminary program is
different we start with the diffusion of preliminary program
without the papers of REF.
Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this call.
Please post forward to all your interested colleagues.
