0900-1130 : Post-Conference Workshop 1

  Network Security: Birds of a Feather Session
  [organized by Doug Tygar (CMU),]

  Description: We invite all ASIAN-97 attendees to make brief (5-10
  minute) presentations on recent results, projects, position
  statements, reactions, or ideas in a special "Birds of a Feather"
  session devoted to networking and security on Friday morning.  ALL
  attendees are invited to present and participate!  This will also be
  an opprotunity for lively discussion on recent work.  We will
  distribute a sign-up sheet for BoF session at the ASIAN-97 meeting.

0900-1200 : Post-Conference Workshop 2

  Concurrency, Distribution and Mobility
  [organized by Jean-Jacques Levy (INRIA) and
   Catuscia Palamidessi (Penn State Univ.),]

  Description: This workshop, which will be rather informal, is meant to
  be an opportunity for people to discuss their recent (or old, and
  undeservedly forgotten) results in the following, and related, topics:
        Concurrency Theory,
	Distributed Systems,
	Names Mobility,
	Agents Mobility.  
  All people interested in these topics are welcome to participate.
  Those who intend to give a talk should send the title and a short
  abstract to Catuscia Palamidessi ( and to
  Roland Yap (

The conference proceedings will be published as Lecture Notes in Computer Scinece 1345, Springer-Verlag.
