During the "HPCN 95" conference in May 1995 in Miland a user group was founded around a number of HIPPI users.
Started as European High performance networking User Group (EHUG) this organisation organised a yearly meeting
with presentations and demonstrations around high performance networking.

In order to have a more uniform naming and in accordance with the HNF Board of directors it was decided to change the
name in 1999 to HNF-Europe.

HNF-Europe now to day has around 70 members on its mailing list.

HNF EUROPE information will be distributed in the following way.
