PRESENTATION

NAS was first arranged in 1995. It's a special show with a hacker convent,
exhibition and different seminars - all in one place. 

This time the Nordic Atari Show is held in a school building, Kortedala 
Gymnasium, in Gothenburg. It offers several small rooms for the hacker 
contests and seminars, a big lecture hall for showing demos and films and a 
normal size restaurant for the exhibition. Showers and dressing rooms are 
available, and there is free carparking in the school area.

Pizza restaurant, cafe and other shops are only a few steps away from the 
school. If you want to stay at a hotel please contact us for information
or visit our Webpage for details (http://www.tripnet.se/sak/nas).

Kortedala Gymnasium is fifteen to twenty minutes away from the central part 
of Gothenburg. There are good possibilities for communications by tram or 
car.

The dates are the 14th, 15th and 16th of June. Gather with your friends and 
join us at a very fun and exciting show for Atari users around the northern 
and european part of the world!

This year the exhibition and seminars are arranged by the Swedish Atari 
Users' Association (Svenska Atariklubben), and the hacker convent by 
NoCrew.

NOTE: This is preliminary information. Updates will come.

Which computer? Atari in all forms. We want the hackers and the democoders.
The Linux freaks. The MiNT people. The Jaguar nuts and everyone else
that uses Atari in some form.


Demo contests

BIG ONE
No limit at all. Should be able to run on a Atari compatible computer
present on NAS96.

SMALL ONE
The limit is the shoesize squared (european) of the deliverer in bytes.


World cup in alfabutton

We will try to break the world record in typing a to z on a standard
keyboard. So far, way below two seconds. Go practise...


Films and demos

We will alternate between showing films and old demos on our big
screen projectors. Of course newer ones as well.

They will most certainly show up and be of good quality.
