October 2002

HNF-Europe is almost at its 8th anniversary, which makes me eight years older than I was in the beginning of this organization and approach my retirement age. I believe that all of us who have paticipated over the years enjoyed many excellent meetings, with presentations at a high technical level. I wish to thank all of you for collaborating with me to make HNF-Europe successful and for the friendship I have received from many of you.

ECMWF at Reading in the UK
and Stuttgart University in Germany

Have kindly offered to organize future HNF-Europe workshops. They have hosted a number of meetings in the past and in particular for this year's meetings have done a large part of the organization already. I am confident that HNF-Europe is in good hands.

Best regards

Arie van Praag

Minutes of the EHUG meeting of 1996 in Stuttgart:

During the "HPCN 95" conference in May 1995 in Miland a user group was founded around
a number of HIPPI users. It started under the name
"European High performance networking User Group" (EHUG) with the idea to organised a yearly meeting with presentations and demonstrations around high performance networking.

In order to have a name that corresponds with the mother organisation HNF and in accordance with the HNF Board of directors it was decided in 1999 to change the name 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.
