On Wednesday 27 November 2013, ARNES held its second Network of Knowledge conference and combined it with events celebrating 20 years of the Web in Slovenia.
The Network of Knowledge is ARNES’ professional conference targeted at information technology and computer professionals in the fields of education, research and culture.
This is a contribution by Jan Rejchrt from the Institute of Computer Science at the Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic: Network anomalies are not understood in the same way among network experts. However, establishing a unified view is important for the development of anomaly detection tools. The survey described will help to develop such a unified view.
The call for papers for the 2014 TERENA Networking Conference (TNC2014) closes in three days' time, at midnight on Friday 29 November 2013. There is still time to submit extended abstracts of 600-1200 words on subjects relevant to the spirit and objectives of the conference and the theme ‘Networking with the World’.
TNC2014 will be held in Dublin, Ireland, from 19-22 May 2014, hosted by HEAnet, the Irish national research and education networking organisation (NREN).
You still have the chance to join the 3rd international platform on integrating Arab e-infrastructure in a global environment, to be held in El Mouradi Hotel, Gammarth, Tunisia, 9-13 December 2013. It is organised by ASREN in cooperation with the Tunisian NREN CCK and Talal Abu-Ghazaleh - Tunisia office, with the presence of ministries of higher education of Iraq and Palestine and representatives from the League of Arab States and the world bank.
The full programme is now confirmed and published.
The CHAIN-REDS Project is organising a workshop on 'e-Infrastructures for Education, Research and Development', presenting project outcomes and focusing on initiatives and developments in the Arab region. The event is organised under the aegis of the European Commission and in co-location with the e-AGE 2013 conference, that will be held in Tunis, Tunisia on December 12-13, 2013.
This workshop will aim to:
- present CHAIN-REDS project outcomes to date;
- explore existing e-infrastructure initiatives relevant to the Arab region;
- offer an overview of the current status of e-infrastructures in ASREN countries.
Over 5500 visitors descended upon Vilnius, Lithuania, to attend ICT 2013, an exhibition for organisations to showcase their projects and latest findings in advanced research and innovation and ICT products just coming to market.
The GÉANT booth was extremely busy during the three-day event, as people came to see EMBL and ITER demonstrate their advanced research projects. This provided an excellent environment to showcase how GÉANT and Europe’s national research and education network (NREN) organisations play a crucial role in ensuring the free movement of data in these vast and important scientific endeavours.
Afrodite Sevasti, of the Greek national research and education networking organisation GRNET, leads the GÉANT project's Joint Research Activity (JRA2) - part of the GÉANT Innovation Programme - focusing on technology testing for service specific applications. The GÉANT CONNECT magazine caught up with Afrodite to learn about her work and how it encourages innovation in the project.
Janet (UK), SURFnet (NL), Funet (FI), Internet2 and ESnet (USA) announced at the Supercomputing Conference (SC13) the selection of four major research collaborations that will participate in the first ever “Enlighten Your Research Global” (EYR-Global) programme. This is designed to identify research programmes that could significantly benefit from enhanced global network connectivity.
The four proposals will be part of this year’s programme, which will give researchers advanced network resources for at least one year. Each project strives to use networks to further improve their research in new and innovative ways. These proposals span a wide array of research domains, including two global climate projects, a biophysics and neuroscience project on how the nervous system instigates behaviour, and a computer science project that enables the analysis of massive bioinformatics data sets.
The 2nd TERENA Network Architects Workshop and the 9th TF-NOC (Task Force on Network Operation Centres) meeting came together on 13-15 November 2013, in Prague, Czech Republic, to inspire experts within the TERENA community and beyond. Organising these events back-to-back for the first time allowed participants to discuss the implications of novel network concepts and architectures for day-to-day operations.
Participants included staff from regional networks, campuses, commercial organisations and the GÉANT (GN3plus) project as well as national research and education networking organisations (NRENs) and the user community. There was a global perspective too, with contributions from NORDUnet (the Nordic infrastructure for research and education), ESnet (Energy Sciences Network of the USA) and the NREN CEO Forum.
The deadline for submitting papers for the 2014 TERENA Networking Conference (TNC2014) is fast approaching. Extended abstracts of 600-1200 words can be submitted online up to midnight CET on Friday 29 November 2013.
The TNC2014 Programme Committee invites papers on all subjects relevant to the spirit and objectives of the conference and the theme ‘Networking with the World’. TNC2014 will be held in Dublin, Ireland, from 19-22 May 2014, hosted by HEAnet, the Irish national research and education networking organisation (NREN).
