The organizers of CDM 1997 are soliciting unsolved problems for publication
with the proceedings. The problems selected for publication will also be
announced at the conference itself.
Suggestions for authors-
Try to formulate problems with enough explanation to be understood
by a general audience. Include a short discussion (between one paragraph
and two pages) that explains why the problem is interesting, mentions related
questions, suggests the level of difficulty. Alternatively, the author
may include any comments that he or she thinks are important. Bibliographical
references should be given if possible.
