DATA AND FILE TRANSFER WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT --------------------------------------------

MIT will host a workshop on Data and File Transfer, Friday, April 14 and Saturday, April 15, 1972. People have expressed an interest in revising the existing ARPANET Data and File Transfer Protocols (RFC # 264 and RFC # 265), to make them more suitable to fulfill the now better understood ARPANET requirements.

The objective of this workshop is to arrive at a unified convention for ARPANET data and file transfer. It is important that we adequately consider the needs of TIP users, DATACOMPUTER users, remote job entry users, and the major ARPANET service systems.

In addition to the current members of the data and file transfer protocol committee, I have invited a number of interested parties to talk and participate in this workshop. On the first day’s agenda is a list of speakers who have agreed to discuss their respective interests in data and file transfer. If your interests have not been represented and you would like to give a presentation or discuss a specific area, please contact me (617-864-6900 Ext. 1428).

Participants are encouraged to have written position papers ready at the time of this meeting. If possible, these papers should be distributed as NWG/RFCs or informal notes to workshop invitees, prior to the workshop.

As this meeting is intended to be an intensive workshop, with the second half devoted to a detailed specification of protocol, it will be necessary to limit attendance. The attendance to this meeting is by invitation only. A list of invitees is attached. If you have not been invited, and would like to attend the workshop, please contact me.

Hotel reservations may be made at Random House, operated by MIT’s Real Estate office ($5.00 to $7.00/night), by contacting either me or Sue Pitkin (617-864-6900 Ext. 1450) before March 31st. If you would prefer other hotel accomodations instead, a convenient hotel is the Fenway motor Hotel (Tel. 617-492-4777).

Please contact either me or Sue Pitkin if you intend to come.
