NWG Meeting On Network Usage

M.I.T.'s Project MAC has agreed to host the next Network Working

Group Meeting in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Due to several scheduling

conflicts, the meeting dates indicated in RFC #207 have been moved

ahead two weeks. Therefore, the meeting is scheduled to commence on

Sunday, October 10 at 12 noon and is scheduled to adjourn on Thursday,

October 14.

Prior to the time, the NWG has been almost entirely concerned

with issues of communications and protocol implementation. However,

we are now in a transitional phase; implementation efforts have been

substantially completed and usage of the Network has emerged as a

primary concern. Consequently, the theme of this Network Working

Group Meeting is Network usage.

The meeting will provide an opportunity to 1) demonstrate current

capabilities of host systems, 2) identify areas of application, 3)

address issues concerning users and service centers, 4) provide

updated information on status and recent developments.

There will be three sequential phases to the meeting as indicated

in RFC #207. The first phase, the system programmers workshop, will

commence on Sunday, October 10 at 12 noon and continue through Monday,

October 11.

The second phase will begin on Tuesday, October 12 at 9:30 a.m.

In addition to any workshops that may be organized the following

activities are scheduled:

a) A Protocol review - this session will be jointly

chaired by John Postel (UCLA) and Alex McKenzie (BBN)

and is open to concerned and knowledgeable persons.

The session is intended to review current standard

protocols.

b) A course in NIC usage - this session will be a tutorial

in the use of the NIC. The size of the group is

limited by the number of available consoles. To

register, contact Dick Watson at SRI, (415) 326-6200.

c) TIP Users - this session will be devoted to a

presentation of the characteristics of a Terminal

Interface MessAge Processor (TIP) and the use of a

TIP for accessing remote services. There will also

be a discussion period. The session will be conducted

by BBN and is open to interested participants.

The third phase will begin on Wednesday, October 14. Wednesday's

session will consist of reports on status and recent developments. In

the morning the following developments will be reported -- the outcome

of the system programme...
