INTRODUCTION

The  first  European  Modula-2 Conference held in Wales  in  December  1990
provided  an  excellent forum in which to promote the knowledge and  use  of
Modula-2 within Education, Commerce and Industry.

Following  the success of this event, Leicester Polytechnic  is  organising
the Second European Modula-2 Conference to take place in Leicester on  8th-
9th September 1992.

This conference will once again provide an opportunity for those interested
in the Modula-2 language and its environments to discuss and exchange ideas
on recent and future developments.  In particular, the conference will look
at the emerging standard for Modula-2 and the influences of the other type-
safe Modular languages such as Oberon, Modula 3 and Ada.

This  two  day  event  will comprise  of  presentation  and  discussion  of
submitted papers as illustrated in the programme.
