>The 6th International Conference on Telecommunication Systems - Modeling and
>Analysis will be held in Nashville on March 5-8, 1998.	The conference will
>build on the tradition of the earlier conferences with a few changes in
format
>due to the new conference location.  The general idea is to limit the
number of
>participants, concentrate on a few topics, present new problems and problem
>areas, and to encourage informal interaction and exchanges of ideas.  The
>objective is to advance the state of the modeling and analysis in
telecommunica-
>tions by stimulating research activity on new and important problems.
>
>The conference will be divided into segments with each segment devoted to a
>specific topic.  This will allow for little conflict between segments.	All
>papers will be screened by the Program Committee to ensure the quality of
>presentations.	A decentralized paper handling process will be used.  The
>Program Committee has been divided along geographical regions with a separate
>Program Subcommittee assigned to each region.  Abstracts and papers should be
>submitted directly to the Program Committee Chair of the appropriate area.
 It
>is expected that this will expedite the paper review process.  Social and
>cultural activities will be included in the 1998 agenda.  The conference will
>be held at two sites, Thursday and Friday meetings will take place at the
>Tennessee Economic Development Center at the BellSouth Tower in downtown
>Nashville.  The Saturday and Sunday meeting will be held at the ClubHouse Inn
>& Conference Center. (See description at the end of the message.)

>The Program Committee is open to any ideas you might have regarding
additional
>topics or format of the conference.  The intention is, whenever possible, to
>limit the number of parallel sessions to two.  The conference is scheduled
over
>a weekend so as to reduce teaching conflicts for academic participants,
>enabling participants to take advantage of weekend hotel and airfare rates
and
>of the many events that take place in the downtown area.  Keep in mind
that the
>INFORMS Telecommunication Conference is held March 8-11, 1998 in Boca Raton,
>Florida.  The schedule of the two conferences was designed to support
>participation in both conferences.
>
>Due to the limit on the number of participants, early conference and hotel
>registration is recommended.  The ClubHouse Inn & Conference Center is the
>official hotel of the conference.  To ensure your participation, please
use the
>following steps:
>
>1.  Send to the appropriate Program Committee Chair by October 1, 1997, a
paper
>(preferable), or titles and extended abstracts for potential presentations to
>be considered for the conference.  Sending more than one extended abstract is
>encouraged, enabling the Program Committee to have a wider choice in terms of
>assigning talks to segments.  Use E-mail to expedite the submission of titles
>and abstracts.
>
>2.  Use the forms at the end of this message to preregister for the
conference
>and the hotel.	Let us also know if you would like to have a formal duty
during
>the conference as:  Session Chair, or Discussant.
>
>3.  You will be notified by December 1, 1997, which abstract/s have been
>selected for the conference.  Detailed instructions on how to prepare camera
>ready copies will be sent to authors of accepted presentations.  January 20,
>1998, is the deadline for sending a final version of the paper.  Participants
>will receive copies of the collection of papers to be presented.  All papers
>submitted to the conference will be considered for publication in the
>"Telecommunication Systems" Journal.
>
>The Program Committee looks forward to receiving your feedback/ideas.  Feel
>free to volunteer any help you can offer.  If you have suggestions for
Segment
>Leaders (i.e., individuals who will have a longer time to give an
>overview/state of the art talk on their segment subject) please E-mail
them to
>Prof Gavish.  Also, if there are individuals whose participation you view as
>important, please send their names and E-mail addresses to the Program
>Committee Chairman, or forward to them a copy of this message.
>
>I look forward to a very successful conference.
