SEMINAIRE LOTHARINGIEN DE COMBINATOIRE
Maratea, Basilicata, Italy
August 31 - September 6, 1998
Ten years after the 20th session of the Seminar that took place in
Alghero, Sardinia it has been decided to return to Italy, this time to
Southern Italy, to Maratea, province of Basilicata, on the Mediterranean
sea, some 200 kilometers south of Naples. Ten years ago we could enjoy
the fine lectures by I.G. Macdonald on the algebra of the polynomials
named after him. This time we want to celebrate
George E. Andrews
on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday.

The seminar proper will start on September 1 (morning) to end up
on September 5 (evening).

THE ANDREWS FESTSCHRIFT
The Seminaire Lotharingien de Combinatoire is also a
regular electronic journal that publishes the proceedings of the seminar
and also the papers that are submitted for publication independently.
Have a look at
or at one of its 30 (yes indeed!) mirror-sites. Our intention is to
transform the proceedings of this 42nd session into an
Andrews Festschrift. Note that the papers are refereed and regularly reviewed
by Zentralblatt fuer Mathematik and Mathematical Reviews.
TRAVEL FROM BASEL, MUENCHEN, PARIS
A block of seats has been reserved on the flights Basel-Naples,
Muenchen-Naples and Paris-Naples (Aug. 31, 1998) by the travel Agency
