AUUG Canberra Summer Conference and Workshops 96

To complement the AUUG National Winter Conference, a series of local summer conferences and workshops are held in Feb-May each year, organised by the various AUUG chapters. These conferences feature local and national speakers on a range of subjects, and are used to help members keep abreast of new developments in the Open Systems arena. They are also an opportunity to try some networking of the non-wired variety.

The Seventh AUUG Canberra Summer Conference and Workshops series, organised by the Canberra Chapter of AUUG, was held at the Australian National University on 12-14 Feb 1996.
