This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Notice of public workshop and request for participation.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announces a workshop to discuss various technical issues of e-mail spam.
The Spam Technology Workshop will be held on February 17, 2004, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Spam Technology Workshop will be held in the Administration Building (Bldg. 101), Green Auditorium, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD.Start Further Info
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Further information may be obtained from the Spam Technology Web site at http://csrc.nist.gov/spam or by contacting Joan Hash, National Institute of Standards and Technology, 100 Bureau Drive, Stop 8930, Gaithersburg, MD 20899-8930; telephone (301) 975-3357; fax (301) 975-4007, or e-mail email@example.com.End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information
The workshop agenda topics will include filtering at the Internet/network and client sides (e.g., how to detect spam and how to reduce it), input from standards bodies on relevant current activities, Internet service providers' current and future plans to deal with spam, and technical issues regarding the efficacy of proposals to create “do not spam” lists. NIST is also interested in hearing about research challenges to developing and measuring improvements in spam control and reduction technology.
NIST also wishes to discuss idea for criteria and procedures (that might be developed by NIST and others, resources permitting) by which the effectiveness of spam controls products might be tested (e.g., by independent third party testing organizations).
Given the one-day workshop format, it is anticipated that following a keynote presentation and other opening remarks, there will be two sessions/panels in the morning and two in the afternoon. Anyone interested in speaking or coordinating a panel discussion should submit a paper or panel proposal to Joan Hash by December 31, 2003. Topics and proposed talks should not be “sales pitches” for specific commercial products or firms. Papers and additional information for distribution to workshop attendees and the website may also be submitted. (NIST may decide at its discretion not to include non-germane and product sales material.) Additional proposed agenda topics should be submitted immediately Start Printed Page 66076for consideration by the NIST planning committee.
