This article summarizes the first Northeast Regional Unidata Users' Workshop, held 17–19 August 1993 at the State University of New York College at Brockport. The goal of the workshop was to provide a forum where users could exchange ideas and update their understanding of Unidata systems and potential applications to scientific instruction and research. Several presentations documented the successful integration of interactive computer technology into classroom and laboratory environments. Laboratory sessions stressed applications of the latest versions of the Unidata McIDAS, GEMPAK, and WXP analysis and display packages. The positive response of participants indicates that a regional workshop is a useful complement to national Unidata users' meetings.
