Subject: Interop Engineer's Conference CFP

                           First Call for Papers
           Engineer's Conference at "NetWorld(R) + INTEROP(R) 94"           

Interop Company is soliciting technical papers for an Engineer's
Conference to be held as part of the upcoming "NetWorld(R) + INTEROP(R)
94" event, May 2-6, 1994, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Engineer's
Conference, which will run May 4-5, is a two-day focused event
offering approaches and solutions to practical systems and software
design for networking. All participants in the conference will be
able to attend the "NetWorld(R) + INTEROP(R) 94" exhibition, which will
run from May 4-6.


The conference will feature the presentation of original papers
which will have been selected by a review committee. All accepted
papers will be published in Conference Proceedings. Accepted papers
must be presented by original authors during the 2-day conference. 

The Engineer's Conference will concentrate on engineering design
problems in three areas: High Speed Networking, Internetworking,
and Network Management. This conference seeks to bring together
research scholars, engineers, and vendors to address pragamatic
engineering issues in the field of networking and distributed
systems interoperability. It is an excellent forum for Engineers
and Researchers to publish papers on solutions to today's
engineering-related problems.

Papers are solicited in the following areas:

*   High Speed Networking: ATM, Fast Ethernet, SONET, FDDI-II,
    HIPPI, SMDS, Frame Relay, Broadband ISDN, etc.
*   Internetworking: Design of Bridges, Routers, and Multiprotocol
    Brouters, Addressing Schemes, Routing Protocols, Application 
    Gateways etc.
*   Network Management: Bandwidth utilization, Traffic Trend
    Analysis/Capacity Planning, Automated Trouble Ticket Systems,
    Congestion detection, Network Simulation, SNMP v1 and v2, Security,
    Export considerations for secure systems, Manager-to-manager
    communications, Standardized Testing Suites, Expert Systems,
    Accounting, Distributed/Hierarchical Management architectures, etc.

Interested authors are invited to submit an abstract (up to 100
words) clearly describing the problem and the solution offered. All
abstracts will be reviewed and authors are notified for acceptance
or rejection of the abstract. Authors of accepted abstracts must
submit the paper before the last date. These papers are reviewed by
a technical committee for technical merit of the paper before final

Please note the important dates for abstract and paper submission.
All abstracts must contain the authors name, address, telephone
number, Fax number and e-mail address (if available).
