      Call for Papers
      Conferencia Ejecutiva de Sistemas Integrados de Información
      September 21-23, 1998 * Miami

      You are invited to submit an abstract for the upcoming Executive Conference
      for Integrated Information Systems (Conferencia Ejecutiva de Sistemas
      Integrados de Información), Cesii which will be held on September 21-23 in
      Miami. This is an exciting opportunity to share your knowledge and
      experience with a respected audience in the following sectors:
      Telecommunications, Electricity, Gas, Energy & Mining, Water & Wastewater,
      Infrastructure, Cadastral, State & Local Government, and Natural Resources
      and the Environment. This event promises to bring together IT
      decision-makers from the key sectors and industries in Latin America and
      the Caribbean.

      Widespread privatization efforts, the need to improve customer service,
      regulatory reform, competitive pressures, a focus on environmental
      protection, and the challenges presented by the approaching
      turn-of-the-Century, are just some of many reasons a conference of this
      sort is critically timed. Demand for state-of-the-art information
      technology and enterprise-wide integrated information systems in Latin
      America has reached unprecedented levels.

      You can become an active participant in this important Pan-American IT
      summit by submitting an abstract for consideration for this year's
      conference. The paper selection process is expected to be quite
      competitive, thereby ensuring the highest quality educational program.
