                                                      Second Annual
                        Purdue Compiler Construction Tool Set (PCCTS)


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

                                                    July 24,25 1995
                                Silicon Graphics, Mtn View, CA USA
                                                    [Silicon Valley]

                                [Limited To 22 Non-SGI Participants]

This communication is a second 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). You do not have to
submit a paper to attend. For more information contact Terence Parr
at parrt@parr-research.com.

                                                        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.

                Also, a printed copy of the forthcoming PCCTS book will be
                given to participants; the published version won't be available
                for a few months after the workshop.

                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 very low and will 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. (Last
                year it was $75 total for both days).

                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 (e.g., brew pubs) in the San Francisco Bay area.
