                        Purdue Compiler Construction Tool Set (PCCTS)

This communication is an initial call for participation; a future notice
will have more cost information plus hotel/travel info. The workshop will
provide tutorials, "practice & experience" presentations, discussions
about the future direction of PCCTS, and finally an opportunity for PCCTS
users to exchange ideas.

We encourage the submission of short (<=5 page) "position" papers and/or
"experience" presentations (<=30 min). For more information contact
Terence Parr at parrt@acm.org.

                Users of PCCTS, users of other language tools, persons interested
                in learning more about language tools, persons interested purely
                in the predicated-LL(k) parsing strategy of the ANTLR parser
                generator, instructors interested in using PCCTS for their
                compiler courses (there are already a fair number of courses being
                taught with PCCTS), and businesses interested in evaluating PCCTS
                or other language tools.

WHY We would like to more actively support the growing PCCTS
                community, to promote the exchange of ideas between users, to
                discuss the future directions of the tools.

                We will be printing copies of the notes, presentations,
                position papers prior to the workshop. We also hope to make
                electronic copies of the proceedings available to other PCCTS

FEE We hope to keep the fee to less than $50 and certainly will only
be used to cover costs of proceedings and refreshments. When
a better estimate of the number of participants is known, a
price will be fixed.

                NeXT has donated the use of a room in their large training facility.

                We anticipate serving refreshments to promote informal
                discussions at meal times rather than forcing attendees to go
                off site.

                We hope to provide suggestions and organized "field trips" to
                the many sites in the San Francisco Bay area.
