NREN strategies for Data-Intensive Science in a Carbon Constrained World

Time 01/24/12 08:45AM-09:30AM

Session Abstract

We have already lost the battle to save the planet from extreme climate change. Rather than focusing on reducing energy consumption, (Mitigation) we now need to focus on surviving climate change (Adaptation). The explosion of data and energy consumption by computers and networks, especially from R&E sector is contributing to energy demand and CO2 emissions. But big data and science will be critical as move to focus on adapting to climate change. How can new IT technologies help us build NRENs and support science and education that can adapt to global warming? We need solutions to address climate change, the coming data deluge, global scientific collaboration, the evolving network of any time, any place, any device and yet addresses the challenge of disappearing IT on campus while still providing a leadership role in next generation Internet and broadband, and find ways to pay for it all in an era of severe fiscal constraint.
