Fri Aug 21 19:41:56 UTC 1992

The Merit NSFNET Technical Seminar will be held in the Auditorium
of the Chrysler Center on the North Campus of the University of
Michigan.  For those of you who attended the last meeting in January
of 1992 (then tagged the Advanced Topics Seminar), this is being held 
in the same building and room.

If you are unfamiliar with Merit's location, we are located on 
North Campus.  The Chrysler Center is an easy walk from the Computing 
Center, where our NOC is located.

Please call or send email to nsf-seminar if you have any questions,
