(Our thanks to Greg Wood and Internet2 for making this news distribution
service available. As it happens, we have a news item ready for release,
so here goes ...)

Hello --

I'd like to announce the premiere issue of "NLANR Packets," a new Web-based
newsletter (

The National Laboratory for Applied Networking Research (NLANR) is an
NSF-sponsored support organization for high-performance networking. Our
newsletter is intended to serve scientists and engineers at NSF High
Performance Connections sites and in the general high-performance
networking community.

NLANR was created in 1995 to provide technical and engineering support and
overall coordination of the NSF/MCI very high performance Backbone Network
Service (vBNS) connections at five NSF-supported supercomputer centers.
Since then, the scope of NLANR's activities has expanded with the evolution
of the vBNS and the advent of other high-speed networks. NLANR's support
and services now are relevant to several other high-performance network
service providers -- UCAID's Internet2, the Next Generation Internet
initiative, and the STAR TAP international research network -- in addition
to the vBNS. For more information on NLANR and the services it provides,

There's so much activity in the world of high-performance networking -- in
NLANR, in the NSF and other agencies, and in the scientific and technology
research communities -- that it's difficult to keep track of what's going
on. The NSF, NLANR's research and support teams, and the various High
Performance Connections sites periodically issue press releases on our HPC
efforts, but this is our first attempt at putting news items about the
program into a periodical publication.

Our current plans call for NLANR Packets to be published quarterly. Every
three months we'll issue an e-mail notification to subscribers that
provides the new Table of Contents, with article summaries and links. This
doesn't necessarily mean that the magazine's Web page will abruptly change
with each new issue. Instead, news items will be added incrementally to the
Table of Contents as they arrive, and older articles will be pushed into an
archive as they get stale. If you'd like to keep up with what's going on in
our community, you won't have to wait for a new issue -- go directly to and check out the latest news whenever
you want.

If you'd like to receive announcements of new issues, there's a Web-based
subscription form at

We welcome contributions of interest to the community -- especially items
for our calendar of events at

I hope the news of what we're doing will be of interest to you and to the
high-performance networking community. Thanks for your time.

-- Mike Gannis

Editor, NLANR Packets
