 Dear SRI and SRI alumni friends,
As some of you may know, I am a happy alumnus of the University of Hawaii (UH), and my excuse to have a free vacation for a few years in Honolulu was the ALOHA system.
Next year, 2020, it will be 50 years since the publication?of the first paper on ALOHA.Because of that, ?I have organized a symposium?to celebrate 50 years of the ALOHA?system.?The event will be held at the Silicon Valley campus of?UCSC on 24 January 2020.
The website for the event is:https://citris.sites.ucsc.edu/alohanet/

As you can read, we are very fortunate to have so many distinguished speakers? in?one day.
Please forward this invitation to all SRI colleagues who you think would be interested, and in particular those SRI alumni who were part of the DARPA packet radio program, SURAN, GloMo, and so many?others.?
FYI, Don Nielson is giving a summary of SRI's role on packet radio [see program] ?and Jake Feinler is already registered ?to attend?:-)?However, we need many more SRI friends at the event and unfortunately ?I do not have ?contact information for most of them.?
IMPORTANT: Registration is free until December 25th!?
Let me or Michael Matkin know if you have any questions. I hope to see many SRI and SRI alumni friends at the event!
As we say at UH, ?Mahalo and Aloha!
