Finitely-presented groups: questions and algorithms
           Second Announcement -- February 2001
              Trento, July 23-26, 2001

This announcement is sent to group-pub-forum, to GAP Forum, and to
those who have declared their interest in attending the workshop. We
apologize to those receiving this announcement more than once.

1. A meeting on this topic will take place in Trento, Italy, from
Monday, July 23, through Thursday, July 26, 2001. Arrival day is
Sunday, departure day is Friday.

We are grateful to the Department of Mathematics, University of
Trento, and to "Gruppo Nazionale per le Strutture Algebriche e
Geometriche e Applicazioni" of "Istituto Nazionale di Alta
Matematica" (GNSAGA-INdAM) for financial support.

2. We particularly wish to encourage interactions between researchers
in theoretical and algorithmic areas of finitely-presented groups.
While the main emphasis will be on group presentations and how to
extract useful information from these, the formulation is also
intended to allow discussion of related algebraic structures.

3. The following is a provisional list of invited speakers:

Gilbert Baumslag (CUNY)
John Cannon (Sydney)
Bettina Eick (Kassel)
David Epstein (Warwick)
Brent Everitt (York)
Derek Holt (Warwick)
Stuart Margolis (Bar-Ilan)
Steve Pride (Glasgow)
Charles Sims (Rutgers)
Leonard Soicher (London)

4. The WWW page for the meeting is


This is updated regularly and is the most complete source of
information for the meeting.

5. The WWW page includes information on hotels, and instructions on
how to make hotel reservations, and to register for the
workshop. We ask that people who plan to attend the meeting notify
us to assist in planning. We particularly request that you
register, and make hotel reservations as soon as possible.

6. We have very limited resources available to provide a small number
of graduate students and post-docs with some local support. Those
interested should write to

Andreas Caranti <caranti@science.unitn.it>

by March 31, 2001. All applications received by that date will be

7. There will be limited opportunities during the meeting for
contributed papers. Those wishing to do so should supply a title +
short (<= 10 lines) abstract to

Mike Newman <newman@maths.anu.edu.au>

for consideration by May 31, 2000.
