Proposals for poster presentations for this year’s TERENA Networking Conference are cordially requested by the Programme Committee. Proposals can be submitted by sending a short abstract (100 to 250 words) by email, before the end of 24 April 2009.

Poster presentations on all subjects relevant to the spirit and objectives of the conference are welcome: to present, discuss and learn about the latest developments in networking technology for the research and education community and their use by the community. Selected posters will be displayed in an area close to the parallel sessions and also on the conference website.

More information about submitting poster presentation proposals is available on: http://tnc2009.terena.org/participate/cfp.php.

Virtuality into Reality

It has become increasingly common to use networks and software to emulate physical world entities. This has allowed many of the constraints of physical and geographical space to be removed. Many people now conduct their social and business lives through online, virtual worlds. TNC 2009 will focus on the technologies and applications involved in this change, examining the following areas: users and applications, virtual people, virtual technology, implications, support infrastructure.

The full preliminary programme is now available online at http://tnc2009.terena.org/schedule/.

TNC 2009 will take place in Málaga in Spain from 8 - 11 June. This is peak season for visitors to the region, so TERENA cordially urges potential participants to take advantage of early registration and to book a hotel soon.
