 FORT LEE, N.J., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time at Blenheim's computer networking show, Networks Expo in Boston, the Boston Computer Society (BCS) will sponsor four complimentary seminars. The sixth annual show will take place Feb. 15-17 at the John B. Hynes Convention Center.
 Arnold Bilansky, senior systems analyst with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and a BCS volunteer with several of the society's special interest groups (SIGs), is coordinating the four sessions.
 "The BCS-sponsored sessions will provide Networks Expo attendees with an important non-vendor perspective," said Mr. Bilansky. "The sessions at Networks Expo will also be excellent exposure for the BCS and its public outreach programs."
 The four BCS sessions are scheduled as follows:
 -- "Advanced Multiuser Programming Techniques in XBase," Tuesday, Feb. 15, 1-3 p.m. The two speakers will be Tina Newton, an independent Certified NetWare Engineer (CNE) and corporate network consultant; and Larry Nussbaum, president of CIDEX Computer Systems, with several corporate clients, including Merrill Lynch.
 The speakers will begin with a discussion of the primary network problems that are encountered by an XBase programmer, and discuss network printing, locking and optimizing application speed and processing.
 -- "Introduction to the Internet," Tuesday, Feb. 15, 1-2:30 p.m. Michael Barrow, network analyst at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will demystify the Internet, discussing the available services on the Internet, and its value for users. Mr. Barrow is also the founder of the BCS Internet SIG. Scientists at MIT, Harvard and Boston University helped developed the Internet, according to Mr. Barrow.
 -- "Introduction to Local Area Networks Workshop," Wednesday, Feb. 16, 1-2:30 p.m. The instructors of this workshop, Sue Bishop and D. Brockbank, are the principals of TIC Business Consultants, a network installation, service, support and training company. Sue Bishop is also a director of the BCS Network Group.
 -- "Understanding Client/Server Connectivity," Wednesday, Feb. 16, 5:30-6:30 p.m. Beth Gold-Bernstein, an independent consultant, is targeting her session at network managers and application developers who need to understand the communications involved in client/server computing.
 Separate from the user group sessions, Networks Expo is offering a full conference program, consisting of eight tracks, including new Client/Server and Application Development tracks.
 The BCS sessions are complimentary and open to all Networks Expo attendees. For information, please call: 800-829-3976 or 201-346-1400, or request information by fax at 201-346-1532, and mention the BCS seminars in your fax transmission.
