Dear Biomch-L readers,

The following int. conf. announcement was posted on Usenet with "Distribution:
usa" only -- by mistake, presumably. It seems an interesting programme that
warrants further dissemination.

Regards -- hjw.

Do you want to know how to get thousands of computer programs free -
LEGALLY? Does being able to send messages around the world, and
receive replies, for the price of a local phone call interest you?
Are you confused by the terms "Hacker", "Phreak", "BBS", or "Baud"?
Do you want to know how to help keep the homebound or handicapped
from feeling cut off from society?

The answers to these questions, and much more, can be had by
attending the Second Annual International BBSing and Electronic
Communications Conference, IBECC'92, August 13-16 at the Sheraton
Denver West in Lakewood, CO, USA.

IBECC'92 is an intensive three-day conference and workshop covering
topics ranging from "Staying Alive" (Handicapped Computing and
Accessing the World) to "Safe Computing" (Controlling the Spread of
Computer 'Infection'), and from "Why Kelly CAN Read" (Education and
the Computer) to "What IS a MODEM anyway?" (An Introduction to the
World of TeleCommunication).

At IBECC'92 you will be able to:
* Join Author and Lecturer Dr. Jerry E. Pournelle, Ph.D. for his
unique and critical views on life in the electronic future.
* Sit and discuss the electronic classroom and NREN - the
National Public SuperComputer Highway - with Telecommunications
and Education Pioneer David Hughes, Sr.
* Interact with Thom Foulks and his Award-Winning Radio Program,
"Computing Success", Live.
* Be a part of Denver's Only Live Computer Call-In Show,
"Komputer Knus" with Marshall Barry and Michelle Weisblat.
* Learn the tricks of the trade with Internationally Famous
Software Designer Andrew Milner,
* and much, much more.

You will have the chance to visit with vendors like U.S. Robotics (modems),
OnLine Communications (Remote Access and FrontDoor), MICRO (The Users' Group
for Users' and Groups), CDB Systems (Computers and BBSes), Clark Development
(PCBoard), Star Enterprises (Systems Sales and Service), Artisoft (LANs),
Second Sight (Blind and Handicapped Systems and Software), the Electronic
Frontier Foundation (Electronic Rights) and, of course, hundreds of SySops,
Users, Educators and Enthusiasts.

IBECC'92 will truly be the Educational and Social Event of the Year!
It is designed for the beginner, the curious, the handicapped, and
educators interested in learning about tomorrow's technologies, today.
There will even be special sessions and seminars for those who are
already deeply involved in the "mysteries" of computer communications.

scientific, and literary society) at +1 (303) 426-1847 (voice), or
