North Carolina
Sponsored by the Rexx Language Association

Plan now to attend The 9th International Rexx Symposium for Developers and Users in the Research Triangle Park on 11-13 May, 1998. The Symposium provides a focal point for information about the Rexx family of languages and a venue for technical interchange among members of the Rexx community.

The technical program will feature presentations by acknowledged experts in the Rexx community on topics that range from application development to the implementation of Rexx language processors. Vendors will highlight new and enhanced product offerings and offer technical assistance. The program will span the full range of platforms on which Rexx languages are implemented.
