Dear Reiner,

On behalf of the conference committee, I would like to express our
appreciation to you for taking the time to prepare and deliver an
invited presentation at the 1997 IEEE International Conference on
Innovative Systems in Silicon (ISIS 97). Your talk on reconfiburable
systems was very well received, and served to stimulate the attendees
into a different way of thinking.

..... look forward to your contribution to ISIS 98.

With best professional regartds,

Lary LaForge,
ISIS 97 Program Chair
