                  [Second] C a l l F o r P a r t i c i p a t i o n

                                                        First Annual
                        Purdue Compiler Construction Tool Set (PCCTS)


        "Dr. T's Traveling Parsing Revival and Beer Tasting Festival"

[We are in the process of obtaining ACM SIGPLAN "in-cooperation"
status and expect to be awarded this status shortly.]

                                                    July 25,26 1994
                                                          NeXT, Inc.
                                    Redwood City, CA (Silicon Valley)

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. Much fun will
be had by all.

We encourage the submission of short "position" papers and/or "experience"
presentations (<=30 min). For more information contact Terence Parr at
parrt@acm.org [We have room for about 3 more papers if people would like
to submit them SOON (even if you can't attend, the papers will go into the
proceedings)]. We hope to make the proceedings available those unable to
attend the workshop as well.

                                                        S U M M A R Y

                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 or printed copies of the proceedings available to
                other PCCTS users.

FEE $75. This covers our cost for printing the proceedings,
                coffee/refreshments for two days, and two box lunches. We
                will be collecting money at the door in the form of cashier's
                check, money order, or other guaranteed check. No credit
                cards or cash--sorry.

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

                We anticipate serving refreshments/box lunches 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.

                Send email to parrt@acm.org with a Subject line of "workshop register"
                with the following information:
