^ Subject: interim report - European Summer of CGT '97

Dear Colleagues,

In the 'Interim Report' of December 27, 1995 I informed you about the
plan to organize a number of workshops on various topics in
Computational Group Theory during the Summer of 1997. Today I can
give you a list of planned workshops. For each of them you find
contact addresses, as well as WWW pages, to which you should refer for
more details, in particular on the contents, prerequisites and
organisational form of the respective workshops.

The announcements have been brought into a common format. In
particular please note that the dates given always refer to the first
and the last day of the respective workshop, i. e. the arrival day
would normally be the day before the first day listed below.

A further workshop which fits into the general scheme takes place
already this year 1996:

Groups in Action (Constructive Theory of Discrete Structures,
Applications, Algorithms etc.)

Thurnau (near Bayreuth, Germany)

October 21, 1996  -  October 23, 1996

Further information:

The workshops of next year are listed in chronological order, I have
inserted into that order some other conferences, in particular the
Oberwolfach Conference 'Computational Group Theory' and the conference
'Groups St. Andrews '97 at Bath' which form some cornerstones for
