First Conference on Network Administration
April 7-10, 1999
Santa Clara, California, USA
Message from the Program Chairs
NETA '99 is the first in an annual series of conferences expressly for
the networking world. In this inaugural year, we have an exciting
program of invited talks and refereed papers, with something for
everyone. Our goal for this year's event was to create an environment
for discussions of all facets of network administration.
In reaching this goal, the program committee has been an invaluable
resource. Without their hard work in reviewing papers and shaping the
final program, this conference wouldn't exist. The combined experience
of the committee members, combined with the quality of submissions, has
allowed us to produce an amazing range of presentations.
We'd like to extend our sincerest thanks to all of the authors who
submitted abstracts for papers and talks. Although we couldn't accept
all of the submissions, the quality was astonishingly high for the first
year of an unknown conference. All paper authors are highly encouraged
to submit again next year, as that program committee will again be
looking for the best papers available.
Special thanks go to our bosses for their support throughout the process
of the creation of this conference, from conception to completion.
Finally, a big thank you goes to Ellie Young and the USENIX office.
Without the talent and organization of her amazing crew, no USENIX or
SAGE conference would ever occur. If you see one of them at the
conference, give them a pat on the back for all of their hard work.
Again, thanks for attending NETA '99!
