                           MIT Project Athena
                          Technical Conference
                              Cambridge, MA
                            11-12 April 1991

The purpose of this two-day conference is to address the needs of users
of Athena technologies by providing a forum where solutions and usage
can be discussed. 

The conference will offer tutorials on Athena Network Services: Kerberos
(authentication service), Zephyr (instantaneous messaging service),
Hesiod (naming service), and Moira (system management service). The
conference will also offer discussions of distributed file services,
changes made to UNIX (TM) to support distributed computing,
installation, distributed printing, building applications on Athena
Network Services, and the provision of On-Line Consulting and support
services in a distributed environment.

This conference will bring together a highly qualified panel of experts
on various aspects of Athena-style distributed computing environments.
The program will also include an organizing meeting to launch an Athena
Users Group.

                           Who should attend?

The conference will be of particular interest to systems administrators
and UNIX (TM) systems programmers developing tools which use
Athena-style distributed computing.

The conference sessions will be held from 8:30 to 5:00 on both days,
with a dinner and meeting on Thursday evening, April 11th (see tentative
agenda below).
