Announcement of 1996 Conference.

     Alcor Life Extension Foundation announces the first of what are 
planned to be annual research symposiums.  Information on this event was 
handed out at the recent Life Extension Foundation conference in Ontario, 
CA.  Unfortunately, we got the dates wrong on the flyer.

     NOTE:  CORRECT DATES:  February 17-18, 1996.  

     We have felt for a long time that cryonics conferences over the past 
several years have spent (often by necessity) most of the time on 
discussions of legal, social, and political issues, with only marginal 
discussion of research.  Also, most of the presentations were panels, 
which tends to dilute the information and does not encourage the careful 
assembly of detailed papers.  Since cryonics research has become active 
again in the last two years, we feel it is time to provide opportunities 
for presentation and discussion of that research.

*Official Announcement follows.*
