The Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association has issued a Call for Proposals today, Tuesday 23 September 2008, to procure a managed Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) server certificate service. This will prolong the existing TERENA Server Certificate Service (SCS), which provides the European education and research community with SSL server certificates that are recognised by popular web browsers, mobile devices and other user applications.
All objectives were met during a recent training course on 'Setting up an eduroam Service Provider', attendees agreed. Fourteen participants from a variety of national research and education networking organisations (NRENs) and some campuses took part in the event in Amsterdam on 12-13 June 2008.
The President of the Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association, TERENA, has been re-elected by the General Assembly of its members. They met yesterday, 22 May, in Bruges (Brugge) Belgium, following the close of the annual TERENA Networking Conference.
A warm invitation to Malaga in Spain for next year's TERENA Networking Conference provided the close to TNC 2008. This year's event was held from 19-22 May in Bruges, Belgium. As participants left the closing plenary session, they received sample bottles of Andalusian olive oil to tempt their taste-buds and their interest in next year's event.
Almost 500 participants attended the conference's numerous sessions, side meetings and informal 'birds of a feather' discussions, as well as watching demonstrations of telemedicine, radio astronomy and UCL AutoBAHN. They also had the opportunity to meet sponsoring companies and the presenters of scientific posters, as well as to enjoy several social events and entertainments.
This year's TERENA Networking Conference (TNC 2008) has begun in Bruges (Brugge), Belgium, with an opening plenary presentation by Professor Paul Van Binst from the Free University of Brussels (Université Libre de Bruxelles).
Around 500 people are attending the event, which also features live-streaming of presentations and online presentation materials for those who cannot be there in person.
The EARNEST Summary Report will be distributed to participants at the 2008 TERENA Networking Conference (TNC) next week, from 19-22 May in Bruges (Brugge), Belgium. Copies of seven sub-study reports will also be available at the event.
The goal of the Education And Research Networking Evolution Study (EARNEST) was to provide input for initiatives that could keep European research networking at the forefront of world-wide developments and enhance the competitiveness of the European Research Area.
Today, a new website was launched for the TERENA Networking Conference, at http://tnc2008.terena.org.
The new website was designed to allow easier and more intuitive navigation and has a new look, featuring the uniqueness of the Conference location and the richness of the Conference programme.
Users should learn about the implications of sharing personal data, alongside their other studies, agreed participants at a recent EuroCAMP workshop, held in Stockholm in Sweden last week, 7-8 May.
The event was the latest in a series of Campus Architecture Middleware Planning (CAMP) workshops for representatives from university campuses across Europe. Almost 50 participants from more than 20 campuses and national research networking organisations attended.
TERENA is gearing up to make training available across Europe for institutions wishing to install an eduroam® infrastructure at their site.
To enable this, under the GN2 Project, the Training Activity is working with the people responsible for the development of eduroam® to create structured training materials and an associated course open to existing administrators who wish to become ‘Approved eduroam Trainers’. The subsequent courses that the Approved Trainers will then be equipped to run, will be tailored to the local situation.
GLIF, the Global Lambda Integrated Facility, announces the availability of a new world map that showcases its advanced research and education multi-gigabit optical network infrastructure.
The infrastructure has grown since the previous map was created a little more than two years ago, with participation from more national research and education networks, countries, consortia, institutions and individual research initiatives, on more continents.
