The 1996 QUESTnet Conference and Workshop will be held at 
James Cook University in Townsville, North Queensland, Australia, from 
Wednesday, 3 July to Friday, 5 July 1996, with Pre-Conference Tutorials 
on the preceding Tuesday.

There are two Pre-Conference Tutorials on Tuesday, 2 July 1996; one on

The main conference program commences on Wednesday morning and concludes

on work at AIMS and a tour of the facilities.

There is a full social program:

    for those attending a Pre-Conference Tutorial or arriving the day 
    before the Conference starts.

  o the Conference dinner on Wednesday evening, preceded by a visit to the
    world class Townsville Aquarium.  The speaker at the dinner will be
    Mr Max Burnet from Digital Equipment Corporation.

  o a BBQ dinner at the Billabong Sanctuary, where delegates and their
    guests will see crocodile feeding and go on a nocturnal walk amongst
    the animals.

On-campus lodgings in student accommodation have been arranged.  For
the less adventurous, a selection of hotels and motels is within easy
driving distance.


The weather in July is usually fabulous -- av. 25 deg max, 14 min with
a very low probability of rain.  WHY NOT PLAN TO TACK ON A HOLIDAY TO
