In response to our Call for Papers, authors from 33 countries responded making this Conference a truly international one.
The large number of abstracts received were reviewed by a committee of international experts before the full length papers were solicited. These papers had been reviewed by committees of Discussion Leader/General Reporters and their teams before acceptance and a rating on each paper was given. Not all the full length papers that were submitted were accepted.
The Conference papers and state-of-the-art reports have been printed in two volumes which have been issued before the Conference. The third volume containing reports, discussions, authors' replies, speeches, and special programs will be issued after the Conference. The first volume contains 103 papers, and the second volume contains 50 papers, 4 invited papers and 8 State-of-the-Art reports. The distribution of papers geographically is as follows:
|Name of Country||No. of Papers||Name of Country||No. of Papers|
The Organizing Committee was always ready to assist in matters of organization. In the initial stages of planning, guidance was obtained from Ricardo Dobry and W.O. Liam Finn. The University ofMissouri-Rolla staff has been very cooperative throughout, especially personnel of the Engineering Continuing Education unit. In addition, our secretaries, particularly Christina Tervo, worked hard to keep pace with the paperwork associated with such a venture. Their work is especially appreciated since everyone knows how difficult it would be to handle such a monumental work without the active cooperation of these people.
The timely printing of the proceedings has been made possible through the efforts of personnel at UMR Centralized Printing Office. Bob Blaylock extended all cooperation in producing these volumes. Without expert and technical assistance of these individuals, the proceedings would not exist in their present form.
We now look forward to a successful Conference in St. Louis during the week of April 2-7, 1995.
