TNC2014 early-bird registration: better value, open now and longer!
Early-bird registration ends 24 February 2014.

TERENA invites you to register now to benefit from the newly increased early-bird discount on participation in the TERENA Networking Conference. The early-bird discount for the 2014 conference (TNC2014) has been increased from 50 to 100 Euro and is available until 24 February 2014. This means that the early registration fee is € 550. After 24 February, normal registration will be available at a cost of €650 (ex. VAT).

Registration is open several months earlier than in previous years to allow participants extra time to plan their travel. TNC2014 will be held between 19-22 May 2014 in Dublin, Ireland, hosted by HEAnet, Ireland’s national research and education networking (NREN) organisation.

TNC2014 will bring together decision makers, managers, networking professionals, collaboration specialists, and identity and access management experts from all major European networking and research organisations, universities, world-wide sister institutions, as well as industry representatives.

Through keynote speeches by renowned specialists and many parallel sessions, the conference will present an overview of the latest developments in research networking, both in the technical field and in the areas of application and management. This year's theme is 'Networking with the World'.
