Subject: An intention to organise a CEENet Networking Workshop. Call for

Dear Sirs,

   It is my pleasure to announce the strong intention of the Central and
European Network Association (CEENet) to organise a Networking Workshop in
This issue will be discussed during the special session of the CEENet
Assembly meeting to be held in Budapest on October 14-15th. I do hope that
a positive decision about organising the Workshop will be taken.

   The purpose of this mail is not only to inform you about our intention
but I would also appreciate your opinions on the specific issues listed
below. This will allow us to organise it according to your wishes, concerns,
expectations etc., which I feel to be my duty after what some of you
asked me in Prague. 

Sincerely yours,
Jacek Gajewski         Gajewski@localhost
CEENet Secretary
