SAN JOSE, Calif., -- One of the country's pre-eminent computer
technology conferences -- Compcon 97 -- will be held February 23-26,
1997 here in the heart of the Silicon Valley. This continues a
tradition of more than 40 successful years in the San Francisco Bay
Area for this non-profit technical conference.

"Hot Systems/Cool Software" is the theme of COMPCON 97, underscoring
the importance of new computing technologies and applications in both
the computer industry and society.

"Computer technologies ranging from world-record 600MHz processors to
eye-catching Java applets and VRML virtual worlds will all be featured
at COMPCON 97," said Darrell Long, the conference chair and computer
science professor at University of California-Santa Cruz. "COMPCON
has the reputation as a one-stop, no-hype overview of the important
developments in our industry. If you could only attend one technical
conference a year to learn about the overall state of the industry,
COMPCON would be your choice."

Adds Dr. Joel Birnbaum, Vice President, R&D and Director of HP Labs:
"COMPCON has been consistently a valuable conference presenting a
broad technical program on state-of-the-art computing technologies."

IEEE COMPCON 97 will be held at the San Jose Hilton and Towers Hotel
(300 Almaden Blvd.) in downtown San Jose, Calif.

COMPCON is sponsored by the Institute for Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE), a non-profit professional association, and has been
held in the Bay Area annually since 1955.

Its 27 technical sessions and six in-depth tutorial topics run the
gamut from the design of advanced central processing units and
networks to computer systems, advanced programming and world wide web
technologies. In addition, five well-known industry luminaries will
give plenary talks. COMPCON has no marketing presentations or product
