   DataBus - Vol 41 No. 4: June-July, 2001
2001 Conference Update

November 13th through November 16th, 2001. Those are the dates you need to mark on your calendar. Or your PIM. Or your PDA. Get the idea? It's time to be making plans to be in beautiful Monterey for the 41st Annual CEDPA Conference.
The conference will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel Monterey-Fisherman's Wharf, which was the site of the 1999 conference. This beautiful facility is only blocks from the water and located conveniently in downtown Monterey.
The conference is shaping up well as speakers are being finalized, breakout sessions are being reviewed, the NOC design is underway, vendors are signing up for the popular vendor show, and hospitality suites are being reserved.
As always there will be pre-conference sessions scheduled and these will be held Tuesday, November 13, 2001. These promise to provide attendees with relevant in-depth presentations and discussions with vendors and peers.
This year we are going to try something a little different at the conference and to help with some basic training and giving some practical experience we are adding some "hands-on" training using mobile laptop labs. Sessions may include lessons such as setting up a Digital Dashboard, Windows Active Directory Migration, Configuring Cisco VPN, Apple OS X, etc. I would really appreciate your feedback on the topics that you would like to see covered in these "hands-on" labs.
Drop me a line at if you have some ideas that you'd like to share in order to make these sessions worthwhile to you. Or let me know what you liked or disliked about prior conferences and would like to see changed or enhanced.
And don't forget. Mark your calendars!
