FOCS98 Tutorials

The first day this year will consist of tutorials as listed below and in the conference program. There are no additional charges for these tutorials; they are part of your registration fee. We intend to make available hard copies of the transparencies used in the tutorials at the conference. Booklets of transparencies will cost $7 if ordered in advance, and $10 (while supplies last) at the conference. Please order the transparencies early if you think you will want them.
