     The Maryland Center for Telecommunications Research (MCTR) and
     Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the
     University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) in participation with 
     the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies
     (UMIACS), IEEE Communication Society - Gigabit Networking Technical
     Committee, and IDA/Center for Computing Sciences will hold the
     6th Maryland Workshop on Very High Speed Networks on October 30-31,
     1995 at the UMBC campus. The Workshop will be held in Ballroom of 
     University Center on the UMBC campus. The workshop is supported by
     IBM, SUN and Sprint.

     The goal of the Workshop is to bring together experts in related
     areas to discuss progress and research issues in the design and 
     implementation of very high speed communication networks. Each of 
     the previous workshops attracted approximately 150 researchers
     representing academia, industry and government. The two day
     meeting will include invited speakers and contributed presentations.
     Papers on selected presentations will appear in a special issue of
     the Journal of High Speed Networks.

     For more information on MCTR and directions to UMBC check our home-
