Session Abstract

The Importance of Cyberinfrastructure for Higher Education

Ed Seidel, Director of the Office of Cyberinfrastructure, National Science Foundation

An iHDTV Peek Behind the Scenes at the LHC

September 10 marked the first-ever circulation of a beam of protons around the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), representing a major milestone along the path towards a new understanding of the fundamental nature of the physical universe. This is a major milestone for physics, and also an important milestone for the Internet2 advanced networking community in supporting research in the U.S.

The LHC will generate many petabytes during each year of operation, and will accumulate an exabyte of real and simulated data within the first decade of its estimated 20 years of operation. Internet2 and its regional partner networks, ESnet and USLHCNet will provide the critical national and transatlantic infrastructure linking U.S. LHC scientists to the data, and to their partners in Europe and Asia.
