International Task Force (ITF) Discussion: Network Research Facilities and NRENs
Time 04/21/08 02:30PM-03:45PM
This discussion session of the International Task Force (made up of representatives of Internet2's international partners) will focus on the relationship between the emerging network research and innovation facility efforts (such as GENI in the US, FEDERICA in Europe, and others) and existing National Research and Education Networks. Various NRENs in different countries and regions around the world are examining how they should be involved in, supporting or otherwise paying attention to the network research facility efforts in their own countries, regions and in others. The session will consist of short presentations by innovation facility efforts followed by a more focused discussion amongst NRENs from different countries. It will provide an opportunity for NRENS and innovation facility efforts to share information, strategies and plans.
