Introduction

This meeting is a continuation of the HEPiX meetings. Their purpose is is to get together to share UNIX information and support experiences, discuss means of information exchange outside of face-to-face meetings, and discuss in general what we can accomplish in concert.

This particular meeting follows on the heels of the CHEP 95 (Computing in High Energy Physics) conference, which will be held from 18 - 22 September in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. CHEP 95 is sure to bring some of the most experienced people in the field of computing so we hope to have some interesting talks.

Overview

The HEPiX meeting will take place between Monday 25th and Wednesday 27th September, at LAFEX a High Energy Physics Laboratory located in Rio de Janeiro.

There will be a small registration fee (US$35) to cover coffee breaks and a dinner in one traditional "Churrascaria" (steak house) of Rio de Janeiro.

Agenda

We do not have a finalized agenda yet, and are counting on you, the participants, to volunteer to give site reports or talks on topics of your choosing.

The Director of CBPF, will open the meeting with a welcome speach.

Suggestions for site reports and presentations

The theme of this meeting will be UNIX environments and user requirements. We are asking some physicists from existing and future major experiments from around the world to address the meeting with their experiences and future requirements and we invite speakers to offer talks along these lines.

In addition, talks on the usual range of HEPiX subjects will be welcome, including the use of AFS/DFS, X11, batch systems, mail servers, and so on. There will also be the traditional site report section.

Please send all offers of contribution to me at alan@mail.cern.ch

Social Event

We plan to have dinner on tuesday evening (september 26th). The cost of the banquet is included in the registration fee. We intend to organize something for the weekend of 23 and 24 for those that attended the CHEP95.

HEPiX participants will have the same rates for the rooms that will be charged for CHEP95 participants in Hotel Glória:
Single Room - US$56
Double Room - US$68
Triple Room - US$98
These rates include breakfast and taxes.
