The ACCC Beat Many Everyone 
ACCC Seminars, Fall 1998
  The ACCC is giving a series of free short courses on the following computer-related topics during spring semester: personal computing and various personal computer application software packages, email, using and publishing on the Internet and the World Wide Web, statistical software packages, UNIX, and moving away from CMS.

Any member of the UIC community may attend any ACCC seminar and there's no charge, but we ask that you register for the seminars you want to attend. You can register:

Seminars By Request or Do-It-Yourself:
  Do you want to present a hands-on computer workshop for your class or department? You may reserve one of a number of the ACCC computing labs for it, and we'll even install your properly licensed software on our servers for it if you give us enough lead time. Send email to if you're interested. Or, if there's enough interest in your department and you're willing to make the arrangements, we might be able to present one of our standard seminars for you. In this case, send email to and we'll try to work it out.
