Conference Advertising

The following is a list of journals that I contacted and will be publishing free advertising for PLoP'99. I included some info for each one, as how much time in advance the call for participation was sent. I also listed the calendars and mailing lists where I posted the calls for PLoP'99.

	Contact: Will Tracz <>, editor. 
	I had to write a "press release", in a paragraph or two. 
	They will use it as a column filler and they reserve the right 
	to edit it to fit the space they have. 
	They need it by May 15th to make the July issue.
