Final Announcement of the IRAM User Meeting on December tex2html_wrap_inline988 and tex2html_wrap_inline990 , 1997 in Grenoble

As described in the first announcement of this meeting, we will try a new structure for the User Meeting. Day 1 will mostly be devoted to presentations of the instrument status and the projects which are currently under development or planned. Day 2 will be devoted to scientific presentations on the topic of ``Molecular Clouds and Star Formation''. This theme has been chosen for two reasons: firstly, the majority of the contributions which have been announced to date deal with this topic, and secondly, this field is one of the two main scientific drivers for the `Large Southern Array' project (LSA), which will also be presented.

If you have not yet done so, please register for the meeting as soon as possible by using the form attached at the end of this Newsletter or by sending an email to Mrs. G. Matoso (Fax: (33) 476 51 59 38, e-mail:
