INTEROP+NETWORLD Doin's

THE BOF

Cornell will be presenting a BOF on CU-SeeMe at the
Interop+Networld Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada on Wednesday,
March 29th from 7:30 - 9:30 pm in pavilion 2 of the Las Vegas
Hilton. Attendence is open to everyone. You do NOT have to be a
conference attendee to come to the BOF. We Want You!!!

Dick Cogger and Martyne Hallgren plus a few other folk from the
CU-SeeMe Development Team will be there. You will get to hear and ask
questions about the latest technical features. You will learn about the
CU-SeeMe Consortium and hear the latest news about licensing.
WEAR YOUR CU-SeeMe T-SHIRT and be eligible for a drawing for a
CU-SeeMe-supported Video Camera.

(If you want a CU-SeeMe T-Shirt, you must buy one BEFORE the
conference - an order form will be posted in a separate message.)

INFO+REFLECTOR ON THE SHOW FLOOR

In January, the interop.net folk said they would again be installing a
CU-SeeMe reflector for use during the exhibit. Of course, the Cornell
reflector will also be up and running.

To assist the organizations that plan on showing CU-SeeMe in their
booths, we have created "CU-SeeMe Sticky Pads" - post-it notepads
showing the ftp and web site addresses - that you can give away to
anyone wishing more information on CU-SeeMe. If you will send us
your name, company name, and the contact person at your booth and
email address, of course ;-), we'll make sure you have these in hand
when the exhibit opens Tuesday morning.

(Please send requests for CU-SeeMe Sticky Pads to:
martyne@cornell.edu)

CU-SeeMe CONSORTIUM

After a few fits and starts and some reorganization, I'm happy to
announce that the CU-SeeMe Consortium is alive and well and
growing. What, you may ask, is the CU-SeeMe Consortium? and how
can I join??

The Cornell CU-SeeMe Consortium is a broad-based affiliates
program that provides resources to the CU-SeeMe project
to research, develop and deliver innovative solutions
for real-time multiparty videoconferencing on the Internet
and to improve communication and technology transfer between
Consortium members. The Consortium will...

- -> Foster professional collaboration between the CU-SeeMe
developers and Consortium members
- -> Provide an open forum for discussion of issues affecting rapid
deployment of affordable desktop conferencing
software on the Internet
- -> Support widespread user experience to generate
knowledge useful in creating the next generation of
network infrastructure
- -> Lead a network-based social experiment of global proportions
reaching into education, telemedicine, business,
and disenfranchised populations, potentially
changing the way "business as usual" is carried out

Membership is open to all organizations with an interest in
affordable, real-time conferencing technologies on the Internet. To
join, a member must sign a cooperative agreement and contribute to
the CU-SeeMe Consortium.

The Consortium will be announcing its founding members in a press
release at I+N and during the BOF. If you wish to join, please
contact Martyne Hallgren at martyne@cornell.edu.

SEE YOU IN LAS VEGAS.
