The conference is the sixth in a series of highly successful and well-attended conferences that will bring together scientists, engineers, designers and managers from all areas of high performance communications.
 SCinet '93 will provide a high performance computing and communications infrastructure based on technologies and services that are envisioned for the year 2000 and beyond.
