In its 30th year, the Alumni Association's Family Vacation Center attracts about 1,650 people each summer. The families arrive from everywhere to devote a week at UCSB--surfing, sailing, wine tasting, bicycling, and taking advantage of the resources of a research institution. Facilities have been adapted for children's activities according to age, including infant care. For rates and more information, call the Family Vacation Center at 893-3123 or e-mail them at vacation@instadv.ucsb.edu, or visit their web site www.familyvacationcenter.com/.

Cryptographers from Asia, North America, Africa, Australia, and Europe are coming to UCSB for their annual CRYPTO Conference. These code crackers -- who use mathematical techniques to decipher and send coded messages -- ensure computer security throughout the world by finding methods to transform data to hide its information content, to prevent undetected modification, and to avert its unauthorized use. Computer security specialist Richard Kemmerer, UCSB professor and chair of the computer science department, is one of the original organizers of the conference. (Aug. 15-19.)
