- -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
         
This conference will provide, as have the preceding conferences in
this series, a forum where mathematicians, scientists, and engineers
from academia and industry can exchange research ideas concerning 
theoretical developments and specific applications in the domain of 
wave propagation.  In addition to the nine principal lectures, there
will be sessions for contributed papers and poster presentations. This
conference is held biennially. Reviewed manuscripts will appear in
the proceedings, published by SIAM and distributed at the conference.

HOW TO CONTRIBUTE 

Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited 
in all areas of wave propagation.

Standard Lecture Session

in lecture or poster format.  The papers selected for presentation
in either format will appear in the proceedings

Submissions must be transmitted electronically in LaTeX format.
Instructions for how to submit electronically will be posted on the
Web at  http://www.usc.es/waves2000 at a later date.

ABOUT SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA

Santiago de Compostela is a small city of 100,000 inhabitants in the 
north-west of Spain. The destination of the centuries old, annual
pilgrimage along The Road to Santiago, it was named a World Heritage 
site by UNESCO in 1985 and  has been designated one of the European 
Cultural Capitals for the year 2000. An enchanting city with a rich 
cultural heritage, nightlife and excellent cuisine, Santiago is just 
a short distance from some of the most scenic parts of Spain.
