Please note that the Friday 21 June is the closing date for early
registration for TPHOLs'96. After that, the cost of attending the
conference will rise slightly. You need send no money to register, but
you must register now if you wish to pay the lower fee on arrival at the
conferecnce.

************************************************************

The 1996 International Conference on Theorem Proving in Higher Order
Logics will be held on 27-30 August 1996 (Tuesday to Friday) in Turku
(Abo in Swedish) in the South-west corner of Finland. Two tutorials are
also included, starting after midday on Monday 26th August.

The conference will be a venue for presentations on the following topics,
among others: advances in interactive theorem proving, proof automation
and decision procedures, applications of mechanized theorem proving,
comparison between different theorem proving approaches, exploiting
external tools within theorem provers and incorporating theorem provers
into larger systems.

Previous conferences have been at Cambridge (UK), Aarhus, Davis, Leuven,
Vancouver, Malta and Salt Lake City. This conference is being organized
by the Turku Centre for Computer Science (TUCS) and Abo Akademi
University.

***********************************************************************
* The third Workshop on Designing Correct Circuits (DCC) will be held *
* from Monday 2 September to Wednesday 4 September 1996 at Bastad in *
* Southern Sweden. This is an excellent opportunity for researchers *
* from outside Europe to attend both conferences. *

night. If you prefer to stay at a central hotel, the corresponding costs
will be approximately FIM270 and FIM150. Meals, conference banquet and
refreshments for the whole conference cost an additional FIM876 per
person, or FIM705 for guests not requiring refreshments during the
breaks. A more detailed breakdown of the costs is available on the Web
at:
