Dear Colleague,


It is a pleasure for me to invite you to the 1996 IBM International

Technical Interchange. The conference is designed to explore how the

world's latest technologies can address rapidly changing business needs.

At the Interchange, we will offer a wide variety of key solutions, over

300 Elective Sessions, and an exciting General Session.


Last year, attendees came from all over the world. We believe this

global approach adds a rich dimension to the conference, and we

encourage our colleagues worldwide to join us. In fact, we have made

special arrangements for significantly lower air fares for those coming

from outside the United States. Remember, register early and save 200

USD.


To give you a head start on the enormous amount of information that will

be offered at the Interchange, we have scheduled pre-conference tutorial

sessions on Monday, 22 April for those who want to explore subjects such

as SOM, Lotus, and VisualAge in greater depth. We will also offer

certification testing for a variety of specialties including OS/2

Engineer and Client/Server Integration Specialist in the Certification

Room from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


On Tuesday, 23 April, IBM executives will launch the Interchange at the

General Session with discussions on IBM's software strategy.


This year, the Elective Sessions have been streamlined and lengthened to

bring you a strategic perspective of IBM's comprehensive offerings and

latest technologies. The sessions are organized by tracks such as

Network-Centric Computing, Communications, Systems Management, Lotus,

Internet, and Object Enablement. A full Internationalization track will

focus on designing software applications for multiple languages on IBM

operating systems. These tracks will cover AIX, AS/400, OS/2, and S/390

platforms. You can create your own customized curriculum and transform

what you learn into the solutions of tomorrow.


The Technical Interchange has established a reputation for bringing

together the newest technologies, and again this year, the Exhibit Hall

will feature exhibitors from around the world. As always, the Exhibit

Hall enables one-on-one contact with IBM developers, Business Partners,

and software vendors.


We expect this Interchange to be the best ever. I look forward to seeing

you there and "kicking up our heels" together in Nashville.


                       James J. Gant
                       Vice President, Solution Developer Operations
                       International Business Machines Corporation

                | The Conference That's Worlds Ahead |         worldcon
                +------------------------------------+


... but only months away! In 1996, the spotlight shines on the IBM

Technical Interchange as the one and only international, cross-platform,

solution-oriented conference. Take this Grand Ole Opry-tunity to

interact with IBM developers, leading industry consultants, and

educators on IBM technologies and directions on 22 - 26 April, 1996, in

Nashville, Tennessee, USA.


IBM has established a reputation for bringing you the very finest annual

Technical Interchange. This tradition continues as IBM proudly presents

this premier international event -- the 1996 IBM Technical Interchange!

The Technical Interchange will bring to you the hottest software

technology for 1996 and beyond!


Elective Sessions



The IBM Technical Interchange elective sessions bring you critical

solutions from around the world. With hundreds of elective sessions,

hands-on workshops, and tutorials on Network-Centric Computing,

Application Development / Middleware / Tools, Communications, Systems

Management, Lotus Notes, Internet, Database, Object Technology,

Device-Driver Development, and Internationalization, you can customize a

curriculum with maximum benefit. The most diverse and knowledgeable

speakers, including IBM developers and guest speakers, will deliver

impressive presentations promising that you'll leave wondering how you

ever managed before this event!


Tutorials



Some topics at this year's Technical Interchange just seem to merit a

closer, more in-depth discussion. To give you more time to explore some

of the hottest, most informative sessions, nine topics at the Technical

Interchange have been developed into five-hour tutorials. All tutorials

will be offered only once, on Monday, 22 April, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.,

so you may select only one on the attendee registration form on the back

page of this brochure.

In and Around Nashville



From the legends like the Grand Ole Opry and Andrew Jackson's Hermitage

to the newest hits including the Wildhorse Saloon, the Hard Rock Cafe,

and the renovation of the historic Ryman Auditorium. Nashville features

an all-star cast of attractions. In all of "show business," there is

nothing to compare with the Grand Ole Opry. Since 1925, the Opry has

showcased the best in country music. With its membership roster of over

70 stars, every show has an excitement all its own. The Grand Ole Opry

is presented every Friday and Saturday evening of the year, and each

performance features 20 to 25 musical acts.


The Opryland USA themepark is more than just music! It's rides, shows,

strolling entertainers, shops, magicians, restaurants, museums, and

more. (In April, Opryland USA is open Saturdays and Sundays.)


The Country Music Hall of Fame is packed with costumes, instruments, and

personal items of the stars. You'll get a "crash course" in country, and

you'll experience the story of country music through the lives and

careers of superstars Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Reba McEntire,

Wynonna, and many more.


Visit the heart and soul of Nashville! Memphis has Beale Street, New

Orleans has Bourbon Street, and Nashville has "the district." Ride the

riverboats, the train, the trolleys, or carriages as you experience a

mix of the old and new -- the best restaurants, hot nightclubs, and

trendy shops. Nashville attracts musicians that shouldn't be missed! But

it's more than just country music. The district's diversity will satisfy

every musical taste -- blues, bluegrass, rock and roll, jazz, and

alternative.


Please ask the Opryland Hotel's concierge desk in the main lobby for

details regarding all of these exciting events and sights to see.
