The Network Services Conference 1993
Warsaw, Poland, 12-14 October 1993


Networking in the academic and research environment has evolved into an
important tool for researchers in all disciplines. High quality network
services and tools are essential parts of the research infrastructure.

Building on the success of the first Network Services Conference in Pisa
Italy, NSC'93 will focus on the issue of providing services to
customers, with special attention paid to the actual usage of the
various tools available. We will address the impact of today's global
tools on service development and support, the changing function of
traditional tools and services (such as archives), new services (such as
multi-media communications), the future role of the library and the
effects of commercialization of networks and network services. Customer
support at the institutional and campus level, and the role of support
in accessing global services, will also be covered.

Talks, tutorials, demonstrations and other conference activities will
address the needs of the research, academic, educational, governmental,
industrial, and commercial network communities.

Tutorial sessions on specific network services have been integrated into
the regular conference program. Practical issues in the use of these
services and tools will be covered in detail by experts. Throughout the
conference, participants will be able to get hands-on experience in the
well-equipped demonstration area.

NSC'93 is being organized by EARN in conjunction with EUnet, NORDUnet,
