You are invited to attend the Merit NSFNET Technical Seminar, to be
held September 21 and 22, 1992 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. 

Enclosed at the end of this note is the agenda.  Please note that
we are still confirming some of the panelists and we may be adding
another topic.  You will be receiving a final agenda down the road

As an added feature this time around we will be providing a box lunch 
from Ann Arbor's famed Zingermans deli.  However, because of this it 
is extremely important for all who plan on joining us for lunch to RSVP
*before* Wed September 16th.

To RSVP send your confirmation to nsf-seminar at along with the 
following pieces of information. 

        -Will you need access to the Internet while here?
        -Do you plan on driving to Merit (ie: do you need a 
                University of Michigan parking permit)? 
	-Will you be partaking in lunch with us on Monday?
	-If yes to lunch, do you want vegetarian? 
  	 (The vegetarian lunch we are ordering contains cheese.
          Let me know individually if your diet can not accomodate this.)

Please note that registration will take place between 9am and 9:45am
on Monday, with coffee, donuts, muffins, etc. being served during this
time.  For those not attending the sessions on Monday morning you may
register as you arrive.  Allow extra time for this.

Here are two suggestions for housing in the Ann Arbor area.  The Campus
Inn is located about a block from the University's main campus and is 
very close to both city and campus bus lines.  The Red Roof Inn is located 
near the highway leading from the airport and near Merit, but is not located 
on any city or campus bus lines.

      	located at 3621 Plymouth Road   Ann Arbor, Michigan

Take heed, there is a home UofM football game on Saturday Sept 19th (against
Oklahoma State for the football fans amoung you).  Thus if you wish to book 
a room at a hotel other than the two above or for Saturday night you should 
do so early.
