A number of grants for travel and accommodation are available. Since paper proposals are reviewed anonymously, the author's name, affiliation and address should be separate from the text. Please note that participants requesting subsidies should also attach a budget, indicating -if applicable- the amount to be raised by other sources. Proposals (3 copies) should reach the EuroConference secretariat by 31 March 2000. Deadline for submission of accepted papers: 15 June 2000. Venue: Sakis Karagiorgas Hall, Panteion University, Athens
