The USENIX Association is a not-for-profit membership organization 
of those individuals and institutions with an interest in UNIX and 
UNIX like systems and by extension, C++, X windows, and other 
programming tools.  It is dedicated to fostering and communicating the 
development and communication of research and technological 
information and ideas pertaining to advanced computing systems.

The Association sponsors twice yearly general conferences accompanied 
by vendor displays, frequent mini-conferences and workshops devoted to 
a single topic; publishes proceedings of those meetings; publishes a 
bimonthly newsletter, login:; produces quarterly a technical journal,
Computing Systems (published by the University of California Press); 
co-publishes books with The MIT Press; and distributes 4.3BSD manuals 
2.10BSD tapes.  The Association also actively participates in and 
reports on the activities of various ANSI, IEEE and ISO standards 

The Association was formed in 1975 and incorporated in 1980 to meet the 
needs of UNIX users and system maintainers who convened periodically 
to discuss problems and exchange ideas concerning UNIX.  It is governed
by a Board of Directors elected biennially.

There are five classes of membership in the Association, differentiated
primarily by the fees paid and services provided.
