     FUTURE WORKSHOP AND CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENTS
     Mile High Conference On Quasigroups, Loops And Non-associative Systems,  The University of Denver, Denver, USA
     Conference Dates:   July 2-9, 2005.
     The conference focuses on recent results in nonassociative mathematics, in particular in quasigroups and loops. Contributions from related areas (nonassociative algebras, Latin squares, computational systems for nonassociative mathematics) are welcome. Based on the initial response, the conference promises to be the main event in nonassociative algebra for 2005.
     DEADLINES:
     April 30 for registration with accommodation on campus
     May 31 for registration without accommodation on campus
     June 15 for submission of abstracts.
