International Workshop on DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEMS for NEUTRON 
      The  Frank  Laboratory of Neutron Physics of  the  Joint 
Institute  for Nuclear Research is organizing an International 
Workshop  on Data Acquisition Systems for Neutron Experimental 
Facilities (DANEF'97) to be held in Dubna, Russia from June  2 
to  4, 1997. The aim of the Workshop is to provide a forum for 
the  discussion of different aspects of the problems connected 
with  the  development  of  the data acquisition  systems,  to 
search  for the unified solutions for a wide range of  neutron 
experiments  and  to  establish  closer  contacts   with   the 
specialists working in this field.
