Merit NSFNET Technical Seminar - Invitation
Fri Aug 21 19:28:50 UTC 1992
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 merit.edu 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.
Red Roof Inn 800-874-9000 for reservations
located at 3621 Plymouth Road Ann Arbor, Michigan
The cost of a single is $35.99, a double $39.99
We have reserved 10 singles and 10 doubles for Sunday and Monday
nights only (the 20th and 21st)
800-666-8693 for reservations outside of the 313 area
Campus Inn 313-769-2200 for reservations within the 313 area
Located at 615 E. Huron Ann Arbor, Michigan

We have 20 rooms reserved for Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights.
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.
Directions will be sent out in a seperate message. If you have any questions
please feel free to contact me by phone or by sending email to nsf-seminar.
