                      Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go On Vacation:

                                                  HOT CHIPS SYMPOSIUM III
                                    A Symposium on High-Performance Chips
                                                        (Advance Program)

                                  Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
                                  Technical Committee on Microprocessors

                              Stanford University, Palo, Alto, California
                                                      August 26-27, 1991

Attend HOT Chips III, a symposium on high-performance chips, which will bring
together researchers and developers of chips used to construct high-performance
workstations and systems. Enjoy the informal format offering interaction with
speakers. This first two HOT Chips Symposiums were huge successes and prompted
articles in three special issues of IEEE Micro magazine. This year's HOT Chips
III will again bring you the latest developments in chip technology.
