ISERN'04 session chairs and contributors

Dear ISERN'04 participant,

based on the feedback and discussions we've had, enclosed at the end if this message you will find the list of sessions and their chairs and contributors for the ISERN'04 meeting.

Please, note that some sessions might need additional contributors and you are welcome to volunteer to the session chairs. In particular, the working group sessions on the second day need chairs.

Session chairs and the contributors are now in charge of each session and I hope that all of you will be active in discussing the sessions actively already before the ISERN'04 meeting.

Please, accept my apologies for the ISERN'04 web site being down: our servers had a total crash and the web site should be online tomorrow. In the meanwhile, the html page attached contains the most recent version of the program. The session contents will be gradually refined and kept up-to-date through the ISERN'04 website.

Regs...JKo (Jyrki Kontio)

P.S. In the list below, I take you can figure out that the text string "_A_" needs to replaced by the @ -symbol.
