      SIBGRAPI'99 will be held in the campus of the University of
      Campinas (Unicamp), one of Brazil's leading universities.
      Campinas is an agricultural and industrial town of 800,000
      people, with a vigorous cultural life, including an acclaimed
      symphonic orchestra.  The city is also a major technological
      center, being home to many research institutions and
      high-tech industries.
      Campinas is located about 100 km (a one-hour drive) Northwest of
      São Paulo, the largest city in South America and the third
      largest in the world. São Paulo is the economic capital of
      Brazil, and Rio's permanent rival in cultural and gastronomic
      Campinas is connected to São Paulo and several Brazilian cities
      by regular air routes (including two or three daily flights to
      Rio), good highways, and numerous intercity buses.
      The visitor to Campinas will find plenty of opportunities for
      tourism starting from there. We will mention only that some
      200km from Campinas are the forests and scenic views of the
      Serra do Mar, and the Atlantic coast with its warm waters and
      uncountable beaches. In the opposite direction, a day's drive
      away, is the huge Pantanal marshland with its rich and unique
