will also coordinate travel to/from MCNC, but you need to arrange for that at

*** Download the appropriate Shibboleth VM. This is IMPORTANT since there is
no time allocated for this step in the workshop agenda.***

Decide whether to install the Windows or Linux (CentOS) version, and bring a
laptop with the appropriate VM player installed and tested. See

The VMs are located in a Box folder. Be aware that particularly the Windows
files are very large and will take awhile to download:

You can also preview the curriculum, if you like, using a link from the wiki

Please direct any technical/VM questions to


OBTAIN YOUR NAME BADGE and other important meeting materials outside the
training room, which opens at 8:00 a.m. We suggest you arrive by 8:30, to
allow enough time to check in, browse the beverages, and get your laptop up
and running.

coffee, tea, soft drinks and water will be available and there will be a
