Due to the unexpected change of the conference location, and therefore due to the difficult situation in the Lichenberg Conference Center and the time left for installing, a local network it was impossible to extend the internet access via ISDN for the CHEPī97 Online Computer Network to the conference rooms. The consequence of this was that we were not able to give speakers the opportunity to use a Web browser to illustrate their talk, as it was offered in the Call for Papers.
For the initial conference location, the Rathaus Schoeneberg, a 4 Mb/s Internet connection was prepared. On this condition it was planned to send live audio and video of all plenary sessions across the MBONE from Rathaus Schoeneberg. Under the low bandwidth conditions at the new conference location, the Lichtenberger Congress Center, it was decided to convert the VHS video tapes offline into MBONE files. The archive of these CHEPī97 audio/video recodings will be made available to interested sites by request. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
