Large Installation Systems Administration III Workshop and Tutorial Program

September 6-8, 1989, Marriott Hotel, Austin, TX

     In light of two successful workshops on Large Installation Systems, there
is a demonstrable benefit in bringing together system administrators of sites
with 100 or more users (on one or more processors) to compare notes on solu-
tions to a variety of common problems.

Tutorials - Wednesday, September 6

     A two-track tutorial program will be offered in conjunction with the
workshop.  Attendees will be able to change between tracks at each topic
change.  The tutorial notes will include material from both tracks.  The
tutorials will be presented by Rob Kolstad of Prisma, Inc., and Evi Nemeth and
Trent Hein of the University of Colorado.
