IMPORTANT NOTE: The Visualization 92 Conference Announcement that you might
have seen posted or printed does not properly explain the procedure for
attending the Khoros workshop. It is open for any one that wants to attend.
You do not have to pay the Visualization 92 Conference fee to attend the
Khoros Workshop, but it is highly recommended. It is going to be a great

The $50.00 fee pays for the setup costs, lunch, and snacks during breaks.

Also, I am looking for one more presentation - especially in the
collaboration area.

Boston Park Plaza Hotel
Boston Massachusetts
Cost $50.00 (Workshop Registration)

Sponsored by Sun Microsystems

The purpose of the workshop is to disseminate as much information as
possible to the visualization community about Khoros from those that
use Khoros. There is growing interest in and use of Khoros for
visualization because: 1) it is an open system and 2) it is a software
environment that is appropriate for many visualization disciplines. A
workshop attendee will take away a basic understanding of what Khoros
is, what the future of Khoros holds, and how the community is using it.

The workshop will have four components: 1) introductory remarks and
overview of the presentations, 2) presentations from the user
community, 3) Khoros toolkits and internals, and 4) open discussions in
the morning and afternoon.
