Preconference Sessions
Tuesday, November 16, 1999

Two pre-conference sessions will be offered this year. These special sessions, open only to full conference attendees, will be given at different times on Tuesday afternoon, November 16, at a cost of $55 for each session, or both sessions for $100. Only full conference attendees are eligible to register for these sessions and all registrations must be received with your regular conference sign-up. Registration forms will be included in the registration packet and are also available here.

Due to anticipated demand, each session will be offered twice. Each session is limited to 40 participants. Participants of the Windows 2000 preconference session (maximum of 80 participants) will receive a FREE copy of Windows 2000 Server, courtesy of Microsoft (limit one copy per participant.)

Session 1
Windows 2000 Server: A Sys Admin's Best Friend
Microsoft Corporation
1:00-3:00 p.m., 3:30-5:30 p.m.

This preconference session will take an in-depth look at Microsoft's Windows 2000 operating system and the many new management features designed to allow administrators to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) for personal computers (PCs).

Microsoft Windows 2000 Server (formerly Windows NT Server 5.0) builds on the strengths of Windows NT® Server 4.0 by providing a platform that is faster, more reliable, and easier to manage. Most important, it delivers a comprehensive set of distributed infrastructure services based on the Active Directory directory service. Windows 2000 Server also helps administrators manage and secure their networks more easily from a central location and provides new tools to automate the most common administrative tasks. If you're looking for some great deployment strategies for Windows 2000, this preconference session is for you! Best of all, you will be able to try out what you learned back at your school or district with a free copy of Windows 2000 Server - that's right, a free copy of Windows 2000 Server! However, seating is limited to 80 attendees, so get your registration in today.  

Session 2
An In-depth Look at Citrix Metaframe, Microsoft's Terminal Server On Steriods
GTC Systems
Citrix Systems, Inc.

1:00-3:00 p.m., 3:30-5:30 p.m.
