You are invited to attend the Merit/NSFNET Regional Techs Meeting, 
to be held January 21 and 22, 1992 in Boulder, Colorado.  US WEST
is generously providing the conference facilities for us this time 
around.  NACR and WestNet will be participating in hosting sessions, 
and activities.  Thus, we will be meeting at US WEST's Advanced 
Technologies Conference Center located in the University of Colorado's 
Research Park at 4001 Discovery Drive (corner of Colorado and Foothills 

Enclosed at the end of this note is the still tentative agenda.  You will 
be receiving a final agenda down the road abit.

To RSVP please send your confirmation to nsf-seminar at

Upon receipt of your rsvp we will send you more detailed directions, as 
confirmation of attendance.  However, please do not expect a reply to your
rsvp before January 4th, due to holiday staffing.

RSVP's should be received  *before* Friday January 15th.  The absolute last 
day for rsvp`ing this time around is Tuesday January 19th at 15:00 EST.  
This is a hard time frame due to US WEST's security requirement that we
submit a list of attendess 48 hours before arrival.

Please note that registration will take place between 9am and 9:45am
on Thursday, with coffee, donuts, muffins, etc. being served during this
time.  Upon arrive at US WEST you will be asked to sign a security form
stating that you agree not to wonder from the first floor of the center
unless escorted by a US WEST employee.  They will then issue you a yellow 
badge which must be turned in at the end of each day.  On Friday morning 
please allow extra time for picking up your security badge again.  For 
those not attending the sessions on Thursday morning you may register as 
you arrive.  Allow extra time for this.

Here are four suggestions for housing in the Boulder area.  

	Clarion Harvest House 1-800-CLARION for reservations
     Located at 1345 28th Street, Boulder Colorado.  The cost of a single 
     is $65, a double $75.  This is the largest hotel in Boulder, with 16 
     acres of land.  They provide a running track, in/outdoor pools, 
     5 indoor tennis courts, a pub and a restaurant.  It is 1 block from the 
     University of Colorado and about 4 blocks (via a nice bike path on
     Boulder Creek) from US WEST.  We have blocked 40 rooms here.

  Golden Buff (Best Western)  1-800-999-2833 for reservations
     Located at 1725 28th Stree, Boulder, Colorado.  The cost of a single 
     room with a queen size bed is $48, a deluxe single room with a queen 
     size bed is $55, a double room with queen size beds is $50 and a deluxe 
     double room with QUEEN size beds is $55.  The Golden Buff is 1/4 mile 
     from the University of Colorado and about the same from US WEST.

  Residence Inn By Marriot  1-800-331-3131 for reservations
     Located at 3030 Center Green Drive, Boulder, Colorado.  The cost of 
     a single is $69.  Suites are available and cost $79 which includes 
     continental breakfast and a cocktail hour during the week.  It is   
     located 1 mile from the University of Colorado and about the same

   Hotel Boulderado  1-800-433-4344 for reservations
      Located at 2115 13th Street, Boulder, Colorado.  The cost for a 
      standard room is $79, a deluxe room is $89 with a fee of $12 for a 
      second person.  This hotel is one of Boulders historic buildings and 
      from what I hear quite impressive.  It is 1 mile from the University of 
      Colorado in the heart of the central downtown area.

Unlike the influx of football fans that complicated our last meeting in
Ann Arbor, Boulder has no "massive crowd" attracting special event taking 
place the week of our meeting.

The airport is the Denver Stapleton International Airport which is about
35 miles from Boulder.  There is a shuttle to and from the airport, called 
the Airporter (1-303-321-3222).  The cost is $9.50 each way and runs every 
hour on the hour. 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by phone, fax, or 
email (nsf-seminar at for a listening audience greater than one).
