    The first Pacific Northwest Theory Day will take place at Microsoft's
    main campus on Saturday May 1, 2004. The goal of this workshop is to
    bring together researchers in theoretical computer science from
    universities and research labs in the Pacific Northwest, and to present
    current work in the area in a program of research and survey talks.
    Everyone interested in this research area is welcome to attend.
