December 14-15, 1998. The Workshop will be held in the Ballroom of
the University Center on the UMBC campus.

The goal of the workshop is to provide a forum where  researchers
and  developers can meet to exchange ideas and report on leading-
edge developments in the area of high speed  networks.   Each  of
the  previous  workshops  attracted approximately 150 researchers
representing academia, industry  and  government.   The  two  day
meeting   will   include   invited   speakers   and   contributed
presentations.  Papers on selected presentations will appear in a
special issue of the Journal of High Speed Networks.
