     Practical Tools for P2 Results."
     
     National Pollution Prevention Roundtable Spring Conference April 
     28-May 1, 1998
     Cincinnati, OH
     
     
     The Information Technologies Working Group of the National Pollution 
     Prevention Roundtable is pleased to invite "proposals to present" for 
     the NPPR's 1998 Spring National Meeting.  The meeting will be held in 
     Cincinnati, OH on April 28-May 1, 1998 and promises to be the premier 
     event in the P2 community!  
     
     We are specifically looking for papers or presentations on the 
     following topics:
     
     - Innovative Approaches to Using Information Technologies for 
     Pollution Prevention.  How can information technologies be applied to 
     pollution prevention?  We are looking for innovative applications of 
     modeling, simulation, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other 
     software to pollution prevention training, program development, and 
     technical assistance.
     
     - How to Use the Internet Effectively.  Now that the Internet has 
     become a mainstream tool, what has been done to deliver information 
     effectively, and what can be done to improve it's effectiveness?  
     Share what you've done in web site design, training, or integration 
     with the other aspects of your program.  We are looking for tools and 
     examples that will advance the effectiveness of P2 Centers, P2 
     Technical Assistance providers, and state environmental programs.
     
     - Linking P2 Information Providers -- An Update on the status of the 
     National P2 Information Network.  The NPPR has been a leader in the 
     development of a national network of P2 information providers.  This 
     session will provide an update on the status of the network and 
     related efforts to link information providers.
     
     If you would like to present information on any of these topics, 
     please send a short (500 word or less) description of your proposed 
     presentation, along with the usual contact information (name, 
     organizational affiliation, phone, and e-mail) to the session 
     co-chairs (listed below).  PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SCHEDULE OF SUBMISSION 
     DEADLINES IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FROM THAT IN THE "GENERIC" NPPR CALL 
     FOR SPEAKERS.  We request that proposals to present be submitted
