 Abstract:     It's BeerSIG time!
               'What's BeerSIG?' I hear you ask! BeerSIG is a social
               gathering, and an opportunity to get together with
               like minded people and share a social pint.

               Look for the table with a stuffed toy penguin

Title:         High Capacity Optical Networking - Tim Rayner, AARNet.

               When ISPs and network providers link their interstate and 
               international routers together, a lot of this heavy lifting 
	       is done with specialised optical networking equipment.
               Join Tim as he explains how you make 100Gbps, 200Gbps or 
               even 400Gbps speeds happen, and the mind-bending maths required
               to make it happen. He'll also touch on how modern undersea cable
               providers are making the most of their sunken assets, and explain
               how Alien Wavelengths are not just something in Roswell, New Mexico

 Venue:        Room N101
               Computer Science and Information Technology Building
               North Road
               The Australian National University

 Food/drink:   Pizza and soft drink/juice. Come hungry, and bring
               about $6 to cover the cost of your share if you
               want some.
