Freehaven Team:

Hi. A couple of weeks ago I sent an email to the Core Team
(Roger, Micheal, David -- got their names from the web site) requesting
FreeHaven's  participation at our workshop. We have secured some great
speakers (Ian Foster, David Anderson, Andy Oram, Eytan Adar, Bill St
Arnaud) plus we are currently going through some great papers and
abstracts and waiting to hear final confirmations from other great names.

I'd like to extend this invitation to all of you who are working in this
project to consider your participation at this unique workshop. I detail
below how this will be a first for this higher ed community. There is a
call for participation that will be closing soon (URL is below); again, we
will very much like to have somebody from the project be here. Thanks
again for your time and I look forward to your reply.
Best Regards,
- --Ana

Roger, Michael, David:

On behalf of the program committee, I would like to invite you participate
on a workshop, titled "Collaborative Computing in Higher Ed: Peer-to-Peer
and Beyond" that is scheduled to take place Oct. 4-5, 2001 in Austin, TX
(see http://www.internet2.edu/activities/html/p2pworkshop.html).

This event, sponsored by Internet2 (www.internet2.edu) and SURA
(Southeastern Universities Research Association, www.sura.org), will be a
first in the research and education community. A main goal for the program
committee is to go beyond the association of p2p with Napster and
copyright infringement; in fact, we hope to provide a new perspective on
how p2p technology can enable new applications and collaborative
frameworks that can benefit teaching, learning, research and science.
Unfortunately, as you are aware, the approach of some of our universities
has been overly reactive and restrictive. As a program committee, we feel
strongly about the need to go beyond this view. We would like to focus
more on the good and advantageous aspects of p2p and distributed computing
models, as well as on technical challenges and issues that surround these

Members of the program committee have read the chapter you wrote for
O'Reilly's "Peer-to-peer: harnessing the power of disruptive
technologies."  We would be pleased (and honored) to have you (or one of
you) speak about Free Haven and your views on accountability and
security. We very much look forward to hearing from you and please
contact me if you have any questions.

Best Regards,

Ana Preston, program committee co-chair

The call for papers/presentations for the workshop is at:
