(*) Due to Professor Kahane's profound disagreement with recent NATO actions he refuses to accept NATO funds. Nevertheless, in the interest of Mathematics and his colleagues, Professor Kahane will actively participate in our conference, with his financial support coming from nonNATO sources.  

(**) We are sorry that Eli Stein will not be able to attend the meeting due to a medical problem. We all wish him well.
