From: std-unix at uunet.UU.NET

This is the latest in a series of similar comp.std.unix articles,
intended to give summary information about UNIX-related publications;
to be accurate, but not exhaustive.  It's cross-posted to and comp.unix.questions because there might be
interest there.

There are three related articles, posted at the same time as this one,
and with subjects
	Calendar of UNIX-related Events
	Access to UNIX User Groups
	Access to UNIX-Related Standards
The latter is posted only to comp.std.unix.

Corrections and additions to this article are solicited.  I keep track
of the conferences, groups, and publications that I attend, am a member
of, or subscribe to.  All others (the majority of the listings) I derive
either from listings elsewhere, or from contributions by readers.
In particular, the meeting schedules and descriptions of most of the
groups are provided by their members.  If a group doesn't have a
meeting schedule listed, it's because nobody has sent me one.  This is
a low-budget operation:  I publish what I have on hand when the time
comes (approximately monthly).

Changes since last posting:
This publications posting split off from UNIX User Groups posting.
Format made easier to use.
