PRE-CONFERENCE PROGRAMME

TERENA Working Groups
Prior to the conference TERENA Working Group meetings will take place.
During these meetings the different Working Groups will introduce their
current activities and discuss various high priority topics. The meetings
are open to all those who are interested.

IPng TUTORIAL
During this one day tutorial, which is scheduled for Sunday,
May 14, IP New Generation will be discussed by an expert in the field.
This tutorial aims to instruct those that already have a working knowledge
of the subject material.
The fee for the tutorial is USD 250. Please note that this is not included
in the conference registration fee. It is recommended that you register as
soon as possible for the tutorial as the number of places is limited.

NETWORK TECHNOLOGY TRAINING WORKSHOP
May 7 - 14, 1995

A workshop on the installation and use of networking technology is
being planned for the week preceding the conference.

The workshop will cover all aspects of dial-up & TCP/IP connectivity,
and, thus, it is ideally suited for regions with little or no
networking infrastructure. Participants will learn the fundamentals
of establishing and maintaining a TCP/IP network and becoming part
of the global Internet. Topics covered include IP addresses, routers,
name servers, network security, monitoring, network management, and
all aspects of networking over dial-up modems.

The workshop is intended primarily for participants from the
Middle East region, but applications from outside this area will be
accepted if places are available.  There will be a limit of approximately
30 participants.

For more information, please contact David Sitman david@localhost.
