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


During the conference, a poster wall will be available for the display of
posters covering a topic of common interest to the participants.
Participants are invited to submit a poster of one or two A-4 pages,
presenting their project. Posters must be handed in at the reception desk
not later than Monday May 10, in the evening. They must contain a clear
indication of the author's name and affiliation. The Programme Committee
will select the two best posters, taking into account the quality of the
project, its presentation and the interest to the networking community. One
author from each of the two selected projects will be offered free
admission to next year's conference. 


Stream C in the conference programme will be dedicated to RARE Working
Groups. During these sessions Working Groups will briefly introduce their
current activities. Furthermore a number of presentations related to
Working Group subjects will be presented.


This year for the first time tutorials will be organized. Tutorials will be
held at the end of the Conference, on Thursday afternoon and Friday
morning. The following tutorials are scheduled (in parallel):

"Protocols for Distributed Computing over Gigabit Networks". 				
David J. Farber, Univ. of Pennsylvania, Guru M. Parulkar, Washington Univ.
in St. Louis, US.

"X.400 : its evolution until nowadays, and its current trends". 
Olivier Paridaens, Universite Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium. 

"SNMP Overview". 
Daniel Karrenberg, RIPE-NCC, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 

"Managing TCP/IP Network under UNIX". 
Suleyman Kondakci, Centre for Information Technology, University of Oslo,

"ISODE - The ISO Development Environment". Michael Mueller, Gesellschaft
fur Mathematik & Datenverarbeitung, St. Augustin, Germany. 

If you are interested to attend one of the tutorials please register as
soon as possible. Please note that tutorials are not included in the
conference programme and that a fee of NOK 1200 per tutorial has to be paid

The conference will be held at the main campus of the Norwegian Institute
of Technology, which is located at about 15 minutes walking distance from
the Trondheim city centre. Banks, post office, stores, restaurants and a
travel agency are all located on the campus.

In May in Trondheim the weather is usually pleasant. Temperature may vary
between 8-15 degrees C. Rainy days may occur.


Trondheim Airport has direct flights to Copenhagen and Stockholm and
further connections to European and overseas destinations. There are
frequent domestic flights between Trondheim and the international airports
in Oslo, Bergen and Stavanger.

Travelling by train within Norway gives an excellent opportunity for
sightseeing, and Norwegian trains are of high standard. The train journey
over the mountains from Oslo to Trondheim takes approx. 7 hours. An
interesting alternative is to travel to Trondheim by coastal boat from
Bergen, a journey of approximately 30 hours along the rugged Norwegian
coastline.  Your travel agent, or any SAS travel agency, can supply you
with full details on travel to Trondheim.

Special conference discount rates for travel by air within Scandinavia may
be obtained. Participants can contact Flyspesialisten, Unit Travel Agency,

Thursday 13 May - Saturday 15 May

Sheltered from the ocean among countless islands on the Northwest coast of
Norway, approximately 5 hours by bus from Trondheim, lies the fishing
village of Haaholmen. Haaholmen has both old and new fishermen's huts with
modern conveniences for its guests. Staying in these real coastal
surroundings you can enjoy life on the quay or join in fishing trips and
excursions. Haaholmen is owned by Ragnar Thorseth from Her y in Norway - a
modern Viking. Mr. Thorseth is internationally known for his
round-the-world expedition in the Viking ship Saga Siglar. Originally, the island was owned
by his grandfather.  

The fishing village Haaholmen has long traditions as a "meeting point" for
people travelling along the Northwest coast. The village is now re-created
as a unique holiday paradise. Excellent kitchen naturally specializes in
delicious seafood. At the quayside you can hire lots of different boats,
such as rowing boats, motorboats and sailing boats as well as fishing
