The TERENA Networking Conference (TNC) is the largest and most prestigious European research networking conference - over 500 participants including decision makers, networking specialists and managers from all major European networking and research organisations, universities, worldwide sister institutions and industry representatives attend.
Through keynote speeches by renowned specialists and many parallel sessions, the Conference presents an overview of the latest developments in research networking, both in the technical field and in the areas of application and management.
Each day will include parallel sessions of presentations on a diverse range of topics, and there will be four more plenary talks, on Tuesday and Wednesday.
All streams are available live and will be made available in archive form immediately after each session. Most of the slides and some of the papers can be downloaded by clicking on the relevant session in the programme, at https://tnc2012.terena.org/core/schedule/list.
Streaming is undertaken by a technical team with members from the University of Iceland and RHnet, the Icelandic National Research and Education Network which are also kindly hosting the event.
The TNC2012 will be hosted by the Icelandic National Research and Education Network (RHnet) and the University of Iceland and held in the picturesque city of Reykjavik in Iceland from 21-24 May 2012. RHnet provides network connectivity to all state universities and research institutes. With respect to its research activities and accomplishments, RHnet represents Iceland in the development of the Nordic network, NORDUnet, that takes part in the pan-European network GÉANT and participates actively in the project implementation. This sets the perfect scene for TNC2012.
Here is our very own Carsten Strotmann, ready in our booth at the conference. He will also be giving a talk later on.
