The Sixth CEENet Workshop in Network Technology, August 19-27, 2000, Budapest, Hungary

The dynamic and innovative nature of the CEENet Education with respect to the organization and the execution of the workshops in the areas of technology, management and policy was broaden and reinforced again during the Sixth CEENet Workshop on Network Technology held in Budapest from August 19 to August 27, 2000. This was particularly true for Track 1: Engineering the Network – NATO ANW, colored for the first time with two new features: a pre-workshop course in distance education and a series of lectures covering the cutting edge developments in the area of network protocols.

Building on the previous experience in distance education and learning, developed through the Track 3 – Wired Education, a group of key lecturers from the Engineering the Network track designed and implemented a pre-workshop curriculum that included fundamental issues, principles and methods to be learned by the participants in order to provide them with the essential knowledge required to gain basic understanding in network engineering, to improve the selection process for the face-to-face workshop in Budapest, as well as to offer the right environment for introducing more advanced topics for the actual workshop.

The results were indeed gratifying, as the analysis of the evaluation of the workshop by the lecturers and the students indicates, both in the very good quality of the Programme content carried out in Budapest and the students present at the workshop.
