ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

4th Joint European Networking Conference:


EUROPEAN RESEARCH NETWORKING IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT


Trondheim, 10 - 13 May 1993



Organized by RARE (Reseaux Associes pour la Recherche Europeenne)

in cooperation with:

o EARN               o IFIP TC6         o Internet Architecture Board

o Internet Society   o NORDUnet         o UNINETT



GOALS


The theme of the conference - European Networking in a Global Context
- acknowledges the fact that networks covering a specific geographical
area or networks for a specific user group will only be successful if
they are connected to the rest of the world.  Global connectivity
offered to a large number of users and applications makes networks
more interesting to use.  Considering that in Europe today only a
small fraction of all academic and research staff are network users,
it is fair to say that there is still a long road ahead of us.  This
conference is intended to explore the next steps to take.

The conference addresses all staff from networking service providers
of all sizes as well as application developers, policy makers and
representatives of funding bodies, advanced user groups and standards
organizations.  Much emphasis is again placed on cooperation between
members of different networking communities, building on the positive
experiences of the previous Joint European Networking Conferences.

This conference is THE forum on networking for research in Europe and
presents a unique opportunity to meet key people active in the field
today.



CONFERENCE VENUE


Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway. Founded in 997 AD by
the Viking King Olav Tryggvason, the city lies on a bend in the river
on the edge of Trondheim fjord. During the Middle Ages, Trondheim was
the capital of Norway and a major place of pilgrimage.
Today Trondheim is a national centre of technical education, research
and development.  The campus of the Norwegian Institute of Technology
(NTH), part of the University of Trondheim, offers good conference
facilities and provides an excellent background for a leading network
conference such as the JENC.

Trondheim is easily reached. Trondheim Airport has direct flights to
Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm and further connections to European and
overseas destinations.



CALL FOR PAPERS


As at previous Joint Networking Conferences, the programme will
include a combination of solicited and submitted papers.  Slots of 30
minutes will be assigned to speakers, which include time for questions
and discussion.  In special cases two slots of 30 minutes may be
assigned to one speaker.  Two-page summaries of proposed papers should
arrive at the programme chair (Bernhard Plattner) not later than
November 1, mentioning the topic against which the author would like
his paper assessed.

Accepted papers must be submitted in full to the programme chair not
later than April 10, 1993, in order to provide a full set of papers to
the Conference participants.  The full papers will be evaluated in a
formal review process; good papers will be selected for publication in
a special issue of "Computer Networks and ISDN Systems".

conference participants.  The programme committee will select the best
two posters during the conference for inclusion in the conference
proceedings.  The best poster wins a free registration to the next
JENC.

During the conference there will again be the opportunity for
participants to present their project or activities in the form of a
demonstration, either as part of their presentation or separately.
Requests for demonstrations should be made through the RARE
Secretariat, specifying technical requirements before November 1

The programme committee also invites prospective attendees to send
