ACM SIGCOMM '96 is hosting two social events with the conference: a reception
and a dinner.
The Reception will be a wine tasting with hors d'oeurves held the
evening of August 27th on the Stanford campus after the second day of tutorials.
The wine is generously being donated by Dan
Lynch from his personal wine cellar. Dan is the founder of Interop and
the co-founder of Cybercash and at one time actually did TCP/IP programming.
Dan is also a noted wine connoisseur and we expect the tasting to be good
fun. This is an opportunity to register and see your fellow attendees before
the main conference program begins the following day.
The conference Dinner will be held in the conference facilities of
the Thomas Fogarty Winery. The winery is on Skyline Boulevard, on top of
a ridge with spectacular views of Palo Alto, San Francisco Bay, and beyond.
Come have dinner and try the Fogarty wines while looking out over some of
the prettiest country in Northern California. Because the winery's conference
facility cannot seat the expected SIGCOMM attendance in one sitting, SIGCOMM
will be hosting dinners there on both Wednesday, August 28th and
Thursday, August 29th. Pick your preferred evening at the conference registration
when you pick up your conference materials. Bus service will be provided
to and from the dinner.
