> We would like to announce an NS tutorial/workshop to be held at
> Information Sciences Institute, Los Angeles on Nov 21 and 22, 2002.
> This tutorial is intended for users, researchers and developers who would
> like to use ns more actively, or extend its functionality. We will discuss
> the primary components of the simulator (the scheduler, connection
> oriented and connectionless protocols, trace support, routing, topology
> generation, multicast support, queue management), and discuss various
> issues like adding new routing or transport protocols, diffserv
> applications, how to use nam and the new nam-editor, a brief introduction
> to OTcl, how to debug ns using the OTcl and C++ interfaces etc.
> The format of this tutorial will be very similar to the previous ns
> tutorials/workshops we have held (look at
> http://www.isi.edu/nsnam/ns/ns-tutorial/) with updates based on
> functionality added to the ns simulator recently (including new wireless
> support, diffserv etc). In addition, for attendees to get hands-on
> experience using ns, exercises in various levels will be given as lectures
> progress in breadth and depth. So please bring your laptop to the
> tutorial. Laptops with linux/freeBSD are encouraged though windows should
> also not be a problem. Also attendees are expected to have a basic
> understanding of C++.
> For this event there will be a charge of $50 to cover meals on both days,
