Appel à contribution pour la TNC 2015

6 octobre 2014

Call for Proposals - Connected Communities
15 - 18 June 2015
Porto, Portugal

Dear colleagues,

We invite you to submit a proposal (presentation / session) for TNC15, the largest networking conference for research and education in Europe. The theme of TNC15 is ’Connected Communities’. The conference will be held from 15-18 June 2015 in Porto, Portugal, organised by TERENA and hosted by FCT|FCCN, Portugal’s unit for the operation of the National Research and Education Network (NREN) within the funding agency for science and research in Portugal.

Proposals (presentation abstracts and session) can now be submitted directly to the TNC15 website :

*Deadline for submission (presentation abstracts and session proposals) is 28 November 2014.*

NOTE : In order to submit your abstract you will first have to login to the website. The website uses federated login, which means that we do not provide usernames/passwords any more ; instead you can log in using your own institutional account. If your institution is not listed, you can use one of the guest providers such as Google, Yahoo !, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.

All proposals must be submitted in English, the official language of the conference, and should be on subjects relevant to the spirit and objectives of the conference : to present, discuss and learn about the latest developments in networking technology and its uses in the research and education community. The topics described below are an indication of the scope of the conference, but are not meant to be restrictive.

Connected Communities
Today, NRENs find themselves at an exciting crossroads in society. Not only do they provide the basic network infrastructure on which big science and big data build, but they also address the requirements of ever-increasing and more diverse communities of Internet end users in the wider research and education areas. Many questions around cloud computing, software defined networking, mobility, ‘over-the-top’ and more remain unanswered, and their impact on the NREN landscape and their potential to address the needs of the users are still unclear. All of this in a time when privacy and security are not a given.

With the TNC15 Call for Proposals we invite you to explore the challenges the research and education networking community faces along the following themes :

- Success factors for NRENs

- Shining the light on Dark IT

- Connecting life, the universe and everything

- Control in the connected world

- Deconstructing the network
