Precedence: list

*** Deadline for papers is December 15th. ***

We need *good* papers and *good* speakers for the area of User Support,
Training and User Applications.

Please consider submitting a paper - or encouraging a(nother) good speaker
to do so. This is your chance to make sure the conference is of interest to
you and your colleagues! The programme can only be as good as the papers it
receives.

This is a big conference. INET '93 had over 800 attendees.

Please feel free to post this message on to suitable mailing lists within
your own country.

The full call for papers and information on paper submission is appended. 
Before that - I've pulled out the information on "Our area" and added some
of my own thoughts on possible sessions within this track. These are not
exhaustive. Papers on any related topic are welcome.

Thanks for your help and support
