publication in PCD.

To get an idea of the type of articles we generally publish, please
take a moment to look at the 1998 Editorial Calendar reproduced at the
end of this message. If you have already authored articles or papers
(must be non-commercial in nature) that match any of the issue focuses
or articles listed in our calendar, I urge you to submit them to PCD
