TERENA Networking Conference 2000    

Session 5A

User Communities
Chair: Hans Döbbeling, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Germany

There are two different ways of looking at a network: on one hand the people providing the network service, on the other hand the people using the network for their daily work. For the latter group, the network is just one of many work tools, but often, the way they use the network is very different from how the people providing the service were imagining. In this session we see presentations by specific user communities and provide a chance for network developers and network users to converge and discuss the provision of better services for everyone.
