This is the tentative 1988 WINTER Conference Program.
The morning sessions are devoted to Project Athena (MIT) and Andrew (CMU).

Afternoons sport parallel sessions until about 4:30.  BoF's meet on
WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY evenings.  Work-in-Progress session is
Thursday afternoon after the main sessions.

I'm sending out paper acceptances and rejections tonight, with luck.

Thanks to the program committee for reviewing 82 abstracts (each with
several reviewers) in just 52 hours!

Note to authors of accepted papers:  Watch this notesfile/newsgroup
for `Instructions for Authors' complete with troff macros for you to

Hope to see thousands of you in Dallas this Winter!  We'll be about
two (big) blocks from a row of almost two dozen fun restaurants --
it'll be a blast.  Don't miss your choice of 21 tutorials, too!

					Rob Kolstad
					Hardworking Program Chairman

			        About USENET

USENET (Users’ Network) was a bulletin board shared among many computer
systems around the world. USENET was a logical network, sitting on top
of several physical networks, among them UUCP, BLICN, BERKNET, X.25, and
the ARPANET. Sites on USENET included many universities, private companies

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
