NANOG 13 Final Logistics

  • From: William B. Norton
  • Date: Wed Jun 03 17:31:36 1998

Hi all -

Just a few announcements regarding next week's NANOG.

Pre-registration for pre-paid attendees
Pre-registration will be held from Noon until 3PM Sunday in the Hubbard
Foyer for those who have pre-paid.  The NANOG 13 T-shirts won't be
available until Monday morning though.

Setup Volunteers Welcome
We will be setting up the Hubbard Ballroom Sunday morning around 8AM.
Several folks have volunteered in the past to help with setting up
equipment, running and taping down wires, etc.  If you would like to help,
come on down Sunday morning; the folks wearing the blue NANOG Staff shirts
will be glad to put you to work.

Lunch Tickets
As most hosts have done in the past, Merit Network is graciously providing
lunch tickets for 300 attendees both Monday and Tuesday.  Tickets will be
available on a first-come first-serve basis at the registration desk Monday
morning for Monday lunch and Tuesday morning for Tuesday lunch.  In the 300
lunches, we specified 100 vegetarian and a bunch of Kosher as well.

Bring your Laptops
As suggested on the survey forms, we have increased the number of laptop
tables for this meeting.   The terminal room (located in the Stutz-Bearcat
Room) has a minimal # of PCs (about 20) running Unix.

Another reason to bring your laptops is that many of the presentations will
be on-line linked off the NANOG agenda web page so you can view the slides
on your laptop while the presenter walks through them.  (My ultimate goal
is to be able to queue questions electronically so you can ask questions
during Q&A through your laptop microphone, but we're not quite there yet.)

Thanks to DEC for providing a half dozen or so wireless access points. Jake
Khuon (Merit) will be working with Jeff Rizzo (DEC) and Jeff Schwartz
(Cabletron/DEC) to loan a few wireless PCMCIA units as well.

Thank to the many that have contributed to this NANOG 
The NANOG counts on the support of the community for everything from agenda
topics to loaner equipment and event sponsorship. We would like to again
thank the following companies for their commitments to NANOG:

+Bay Networks for providing the room connectivity.  We will have dozens of
hubs for over 400 wired ethernet ports for this meeting!
+RBN for casting the meeting and providing storage and reply facilities
+Cisco for providing the hardware and staff to cast the meeting on the MBone
+University of Michigan Information technology Division for providing PCs
for the terminal room
+Aptis, Bay, and Cisco for providing the Beer-n-Gear event
+Cabletron for providing Wireless transceivers and a handful of loaner
PCMCIA cards
+Merit MichNet for providing transit connectivity to the Hyatt Dearborn

Thanks especially to Larry Blunk and Eric Sobocinski who have taken the
lead on connectivity to and throughout the meeting space as well as getting
the terminal room and servers set up at the Dearborn Hyatt.  Thanks Guys!

For those attending the meeting Physically rather than Virtually
Bring your appetite for the Monday evening beer-n-gear; there will be many
varieties of great food, beer, and gear from Aptis, Bay and Cisco!  

Speaking of T-shirts...FYI, I have been forced to clean out the Merit
closet of old NANOG T-shirts. In doing so, I found that I have enough left
over T-shirts to make a small number of "NANOG Tshirt Collector's Sets,
N8-N12".  I will give away 2 of these Collector's sets away at the next
NANOG to those who fill out (and identify themselves on) the survey forms
(for lack of a better method). 

Thanks, and see you all in Dearborn.
