25-29 June 2000, Tartu, Estonia
As with any high-technology area, the amount that can be learnt from
publications is limited. There is a clear need for practical workshops,
involving interaction with world experts and hands-on experience with equipment
that is normally inaccessible in the region.
The workshop was aimed at those who are currently running national network services but who will, in the near future, be introducing new technologies to provide new applications, higher bandwidth and a more reliable service. The workshop was practical and technology-orientated but also provided some experience of network management and an exploration of the application-level issues. In addition, latest developments in neworking areas like mobile wireless and optical swithing were covered.
Lectures and hands-on sessions were held by experts who are internationally respected in their field. Upon returning to their countries, it is hoped that the participants have gained the knowledge to build state-of-the-art networks, and importantly, they are able to transfer their expertise to other network engineers.
The participation in this workshop was restricted to applicants from NATO "Partner" countries and the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.
TERENA is grateful to the following organisations who have donated much time, effort and equipment, and without whom, the workshop could not take place:
