COV&R-Bulletin No. 13 (Oct. 1997)
A Note from the Editor
Editing a newsletter seems to be like doing politics. In both fields one has to accept the rule that you should never say never again. Despite my saying goodbye in the last issue of the Bulletin I will continue as the editor of the Bulletin for this and the next issue. Afterwards, however, I really have to say goodbye. Johan Elsen will be in charge from next October on.
Let me raise also some administrative matters:
(1) We ask you to send us your contributions to the Bulletin on a floppy disk or by e-mail. It greatly simplifies the publication of the Bulletin.
(2) If you would like to write a book review for the Bulletin please contact the editorial office or James G. Williams, the executive secretary. The length of a review should be between 600 and 1000 words. Longer reviews (at most 2000 words) will only be published in special circumstances.
(3) The length of an abstract should be between 100 and 300 words.
(4) Please find out if you have paid your annual dues. You will find the date of your last payment at the top of your mailing label. The regular membership fee is $40.00. Matriculated students may enroll for $20. It is also possible to subscribe to the Bulletin without membership for $15. The Bulletin appears biannually. The terms of payment you will find on the front-page.
