DIMACS Workshop on End-to-End Network Modeling and Simulation: Program

October 23-24, 1997
Princeton University

Sandeep Bhatt, Bellcore
Ashok Erramilli, Qmetrix
Andy T. Ogielski, Rutgers

Thursday talks will be in E-Quad Building,
Friday talks will be in the CS building.
On both days there will be a registration desk outside the hall where the sessions are held.

Please park in the garage on the corner or Prospect and Olden Streets (entrance on Prospect) --- use either the 4th or 5th floor. Pick up a parking pass at the registration desk and place it on the dashboard of your car to avoid getting a ticket from the campus police.
