The selected applications are meant to demonstrate the existing and
potential uses of an advanced Internet and to highlight relevant human
and organizational dimensions of communications.
Specifically, this I2 ST Summit is especially appropriate venue for applications that demonstrate the importance of understanding audiences and users, of addressing human bandwidth limitations, of enabling collaboration, of understanding the dynamics of knowledge diffusion and its implications for organizations, and of addressing the social context in which an advanced Internet will be used. In addition to the Summit attendees, demonstrations will also be viewed by technology, business and academic leaders from the region at a VIP recepetion Tuesday evening, September 14th.

NCSA Technology Roadshow - August 22-25
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Barbara Kucera and I have joined John Connolly as the National Computational Science Alliance/EPSCoR liaison. I look forward to working with you in the coming years. This invitation is an unique opportunity for you to participate in Alliance technology road show to be held in Lexington, KY, on August 22-25.
The Alliance will host three technology road shows designed to demonstrate to researchers, educators and students how emerging technology will change the way people communicate, learn, and conduct research and business in the 21st century. Called "chautauquas" (a Seneca Indian word meaning meeting or gathering) these events will feature talks by technology leaders, demonstrate the prototype of the next century's information infrastructure--the National Technology Grid, and help stimulate the growth of the nationwide digital research community.
The Alliance Chautauqua '99 meeting scheduled for the University of Kentucky, in Lexington, will begin with tutorials and training on August 22; include two days of core Alliance program presentations on August 23-24, and conclude on August 25 with speakers of a more regional and focus and an EPSCoR "Town Meeting."
The core Alliance program will feature:

Call for Participation: Internet2 Caching Project
Micah Beck, Chair, Internet2 Network Storage WG
Internet2 is making available to the community approximately 10 Caching Appliances donated jointly by Compaq and Novell. These caches will be used to improve the connectivity of Internet2 member and partner institutions.
Two points of deployment have been identified for Caching Appliances
in the Internet2 community:
1. at GigaPOPs or other points which form the hub of a regional network and thus a natural point at which to locate a shared cache, and
2. at STARTAP and the connection points of international networks which connect to it.
In order to identify participants who will make the best use of the donated resources, we are solicitying a short description of the network each Caching Appliance will be deploy into and the community it will serve. It is understood that these servers are likely to handle both commodity and research traffic in many cases because of their Web-specific nature.
Please send a short description of your intended participation in the project the chair of the Network Storage Working Group, Micah Beck (firstname.lastname@example.org). For more information about the Caching Appliances contact Jamshid Mahdavi of Novell (email@example.com).
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Both lecture and lab will be used to cover the distributed computing concepts used on wide area networks such as the vBNS and Abilene. The workshop will begin with essentials of the network from the transport layer on down and will walk participants through successful, practical case studies. Substantial time will also be devoted specifically to Globus and the concept of Computational Grids.
For more detailed information regarding this July workshop, please see: http://dast.nlanr.net/Training/DCWAug99/.
The registration deadline for this AUGUST Distributed Computing Workshop is August 2nd. See http://dast.nlanr.net/Training/DCWAug99 for more information or to register.
