Song Dedicated to the
11th ATPS Conference

by Professor Göte Johansson

(Sung on the occasion of his 1999 Biennial ATPS Award)

 We have come to Alabama
For the eleventh conference
To discuss our latest data
Just collected from the bench
We have traveled very long ways
To listen and understand
Why the partition coefficients
Are not the same in another land

 Refrain:

Now the good old times have finished
We have to work twelve hours a day
We just want to lay on the beach
But it is far, so far away
We have heard about Alabama slaves
And here again we go
Keeping up the old traditions
At the Gulf of Mexico

Many old-timers are missing
In the present Conference
Harry Walter and Per-Åke
And lot of other friends
But a number of young people
Are replacing them very well
By studying various partitionings
In the two-phase djungél

 Refrain:

Now the good old times have finished
We have to work twelve hours a day
We just want to lay on the beach
But it is far, so far away
We have heard about Alabama slaves
And here again we go
Keeping up the old traditions
At the Gulf of Mexico

We came to Alabama
With the posters on our knees
To share the secret knowledge
Of well working CCDs
We have written down a lot
of important science things
We also tried to understand
The equations of modelings

 Refrain:

Now the good old times have finished
We have to work twelve hours a day
We just want to lay on the beach
But it is far, so far away
We have heard about Alabama slaves
And here again we go
Keeping up the old traditions
At the Gulf of Mexico

Refrain: (Slower)

Now the good old times have finished
We have to work twelve hours a day
We just want to lay on the beach
But it is far, so far away
We have heard about Alabama slaves
And here again we go
Keeping up the old traditions
At the Gulf of Mexico
