Announcing the PAP'95 and PACT'95 conferences....

                 The Third International Conference on

             The Practical Applications of PROLOG - PAP'95

                 Monday 3rd April - Friday 6th April 1995

            The Hotel Sofitel Paris St Jacques, Paris, France

                The Commercial Value of Prolog:-

            An Exploration Through Practical Applications

The PAP conferences are the world's showcase for Prolog systems and
applications. Outstanding examples of fielded industrial applications from
all over the world formed the core of the previous two conferences.

In recognition of the international status of Prolog technology, this event
takes place outside the UK for the first time, and features a rich mix of
excellent speakers from international companies, tutorials presented by the
world's leading developers of state-of-the-art systems, and exhibits of the
latest applications, tools and products.

This year's Conference and Exhibition will focus on the industrial and
commercial exploitation of Prolog and Constraint Logic Programming.

PAP'95 will bring together major Prolog users, researchers, developers  and
suppliers, in a relaxed but productive setting, to explore the growing
capability and power of these rapidly evolving technologies.

An industrial exhibition will accompany the main conference, providing
delegates and visitors with an opportunity to see demonstrations of the
latest Prolog technology.

PACT'95 CONFERENCE      Friday 7th April

This year sees the launch of PACT'95, a special one-day conference and
exhibition on the practical application of constraint technology. This
sister event will focus on the industrial exploitation of Constraint
Programming and Constraint Logic Programming, examine the benefits for
business, and indicate the future trends of this important technology.

This exciting one-day event includes presentations from leading
international companies which have successfully introduced this key
technology, case studies, technology overviews, demonstrations, and round
table panel discussion. PACT'95 will provide an opportunity to find out how
companies in many industries are controlling their costs, and achieving
superior customer service through the application of constraint technology.

EXHIBITION              PAP'95: Wednesday 5th, Thursday 6th April
                                PACT'95:        Friday 7th April

Leading suppliers of Prolog based products and services will provide
practical displays of Prolog applications and development tools. Delegates
will have the opportunity to see the latest Prolog systems and to discuss
at length any issues with individual companies. The exhibition is open to
non-delegates and will be adjacent to the conference sessions.
