Network Working Group 14 January 1972 Request for Comments 291 D. B. McKay, IBM NIC 8301 (Area Code 914)- 945-1159 Categories: A.2, D.4, D.7

                Data Management Meeting Announcement
                ------------------------------------
      Mitre will host a Network Data Management Meeting, February 23,
 24.  As a follow-on from past meetings, the meeting is being held to
 accomplish two objectives.  As a result of the first data management
 meeting in Aug- ust, the general consensus was a need to learn about
 applications of net- work data facilities, and how networks will
 better help users achieve their objectives.  There are several people
 that have expressed an inter- est in discussing applications.  The
 attached schedule is a list of people who have agreed to talk.  If
 anyone knows of other people interested in discussing applications,
 please have them contact me.
      Secondly, the meeting will discuss and try to arrive at a
 specifica- tion for a network data management protocol.  It was
 decided that the best way to come up with a design would be to discuss
 a tentative written proposal or proposals.  I will try and have copies
 of a written proposal available to meeting attendees before the
 meeting date.  I would like to encourage anyone else interested in
 submitting a 3rd level protocol for sharing network data to do so.
      The protocol design would hopefully achieve the objectives of a
 data facility described in stage 2 of RFC-146.
      Since the facilities are limited and the second half of the
 meeting is to be a working session, it will be necessary to limit the
 attendance.  First priority will be the people or representatives from
 groups that have participated in the past two meetings.  I will inform
 any other people who contact me of any openings.
      All reservations should be made by contacting Mrs. Madeline
 Cornell at Mitre, Telephone (Area Code 703) 893-3500 Extension 2395 as
 soon as possible.
