Archived streams of presentations from this year's TERENA Networking Conference (TNC 2009) are available on the conference website. Around 450 people attended the event, which also featured online presentation materials for those who could not be there in person.

The conference, with the theme ‘Virtuality into Reality', continued until 13.30 CET on Thursday. The closing plenary was delivered by Simone Brunozzi, Amazon.com’s Web Services Evangelist. In addition to five more plenary talks, each day included parallel sessions of presentations on a diverse range of topics.

All streams are available from http://tnc2009.terena.org.

Most of the slides and some of the papers can be downloaded by clicking on the relevant session in the programme, at http://tnc2009.terena.org/schedule/.

The streams are accessible from Windows, Apple and Linux machines. The only thing that is required is the Macromedia Flash plug-in. Streaming is at two bit rates: 750 kb/s and 250 kb/s. All streams are available live and in archive form around fifteen minutes after the session.

Streaming is undertaken by the technical team of the University of Malaga. The University of Malaga and the Spanish national research networking organisation RedIRIS are kindly hosting the event.
