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.

DEMONSTRATIONS
At the Conference there will be a demonstrations area where participants
may visit a number of stands to see displays and demonstrations of various
projects and applications of networking services for the academic
community.

and terminals connected to the Internet for electronic mail and other
