Call for Workshop Instructors, Session Chairs,
APRICOT 2002 will be offering hands
on workshops prior to the conference commencement on March 3rd.
The workshops will start on Wednesday 27th February at 9am and
finish on Saturday 2nd March at 6pm.
All workshops will last for a maximum
of 4 days, and all attendants are required to pre-register. Topics
already proposed include DNS, IP Routing, BGP Multihoming, and
ISP Security. We would welcome any other contributions, for example
ISP Network Management, Deploying IPv6, etc...
The idea of the workshops is to continue
the excellent work done by the ISOC in their past Network Training
Workshop series. The workshops aim to teach attendants from developing
countries some of the skills which are in common use throughout
the developed Internet framework.
Anyone who is interested in assisting
with presenting these workshops, or offering material which can
be used for the workshops, should contact Philip Smith <firstname.lastname@example.org>
or Bill Manning <email@example.com>.
