A host of other events will make the two-day event stimulating 
and informative. Among the many special attractions are:
Meet the Sysop Booth - A special booth will be manned throughout 
the two days by Sysops from Bulletin Board Systems from all over 
Canada and the United States. Sysops on the Forem network will be 
meeting for a special brunch, and many other users of BBS systems 
have expressed the desire to meet the invisible "Sysops" they 
have come to know only through their computers. A full schedule 
of times will be posted at the show. 
Seminars and Training Classes - Three seminar rooms and a 
Training Room will provide many opportunities to meet developers, 
see new products demonstrated, and get hands-on training. Both 
ISD Marketing and SoftLogik will be conducting classes in their 
Desktop Publishing Programs. ISD will have classes for both 
Calamus 1.09 and the new Calamus SL, and Softlogik has scheduled 
sessions each day for Pagestream 2.1. Seminar topics range from 
using computers to re-construct dinosaur fossils to creating 
music. Ralph Mariano, publisher of ST Reports, will speak, and a 
number of new programs and products will be shown. There will be 
times when as many as four presentations will be going on 
Concerts and Performances - In the special MIDI area there will 
be a stage for public performances and entries in the Talent 
Contest. Several professional groups will be performing, as will 
contestants in the musical division of the Talent Contest. 
Graphics entries will be projected throughout both days so that 
all can see the creations of the entrants, and demonstrations of 
MIDI software and special effects will be taking place in the 
luxurious seminar area specially equipped for that purpose.
"Showing Off" - Several developers have indicated that one of 
the reasons they are participating in ACE '92 is just to "show 
off" their products. Goldleaf Publishing, for example, will be 
bringing video digitizing equipment, and will transform 
photographs that participants bring to them into a number of 
different formats. You might go home with a free refrigerator 
magnet with your digitized face on it! Or have a photo of you 
with a famous celebrity (without the celebrity ever having been 
there)! Micro-Creations is giving a free copy of their new BBS 
program to every Atari club present, and most booths will have 
special show prices and packages.
Show hours are 10am to 6pm on Saturday, April 4th, and from 11am 
to 6pm on Sunday, April 6th. (Remember - this is the week-end you 
turn clocks AHEAD one hour, which is the reason for the later 
starting time on Sunday.) Admission is $6, no charge for children 
6 and under. ACE '92 will be held at the Skyline Hotel, 655 Dixon 
Rd in Toronto, near Pearson International Airport.
