We are grateful to all who have contributed to this Conference. Our special thanks go to the authors of papers and to the referees. The invited speakers give a particular flavour to the Conference. So do the moderators and the participants at the panel discussion. Co-operating institutions and sponsors gave us invaluable help, too. At last, but surely not the least, the strong international component, the enjoyable social events and a scenic environment have always helped to create a memorable atmosphere. Now when the danger of war is overcome, we can hope in a further Conference growth
We are looking forward seeing you at the 19th International Conference on "Information Technology Interfaces" ITI '97. We believe that the ITI '97 will bring a growth in quality and abundance of the Conference activities and a further increase in the number of participants. We hope that you, the participants of ITI '96, will help us to achieve these objectives.
