... yes, it also applies to the Berlin-Meeting, and I take 
the opportunity to remember all of you that the deadline for
 proposals for the meeting is March 1st 2004. Please sent 
your abstracts to kohler@wz-berlin.de or to 
johannes.giesecke@rz.hu-berlin.de.

many regards

Aside: I also like to mention that the exhibition of the Museum of 
Modern Art, New York is just next door to the confernece venue. 
However the exhibition is closed on Monday. If you plan to connect a 
visit of the  exhibition and the Users Group Meeting you need one 
more day -- and probably some patience while queueing up.
