Porto, Portugal is the location of TNC15

GÉANT Association invites you to register now to benefit from the early-bird discount on participation in TNC15. The early-bird discount of € 100 is available until 23 February 2015. This means that the early registration fee is € 550 (excluding VAT). After 23 February, registration will continue at the full cost of € 650 (excluding VAT).

Registration is open earlier than in previous years in order to allow extra time to plan your travel. TNC15 will be held between 15-18 June 2015 in Porto, Portugal, hosted by FCT | FCCN, Portugal's unit for the operation of the National Research and Education Network within the funding agency for science and research in Portugal.

TNC15 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 'Connected Communities'.
