(Because Connectathon 2004 is earlier than usual, the early-bird
registration deadline is earlier, too; 19 December 2003 to be exact.
So if you're planning on coming to Connectathon and want to save on
registration, you'll need to get your forms and fees in by the 19th.)

Get ready for Connectathon 2004! The 18th annual interoperability
testing event for engineers only will be held Feb. 19-26, 2004 in
San Jose, California. For the past 3 years, Connectathon booth space
has sold out! Get your registration forms and fees in early and take
advantage of registration discounts available through December 19th.

Connectathon, sponsored by Sun Microsystems, Inc., hosts over 40
companies annually in an effort to test and debug source code which
utilize the following technologies and protocols:

NFS versions 2, 3 and 4
NFS over RDMA
NFSv4 replication and migration
Kerberos
IPv6
NDMP
IPsec
CIFS
Mobile IPv6
Secure Shell

Based on demand, in addition we are considering to offer:

LDAP
Mobile IPv4

Testing continues 24 hours per day. Technology testing coordinators
will organize testing procedures and test suite material. In addition,
there will be seminars and speakers addressing various topics.

The registration deadline is February 6, 2004. But don't wait that
long! An Early Bird Discount on booth fees is available to those who
register and pay by December 19, 2003. For the past 3 years,
Connectathon has sold out of booth space. Please get your registration
materials in quickly to avoid disappointment. Go to
http://www.connectathon.org to download all forms and information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Audrey Van
Belleghem at audrey@vanb.com or (408) 358-9598.

We look forward to seeing you at the 18th annual Connectathon event!
