The programme committee for next year’s NORDUnet conference has been appointed. Danish r&e network DeiC is hosting the 30th conference, taking place at the Culture Yard in Elsinore, Denmark, on 18-20 September 2018.
Martin Bech and Gitte Julin Kudsk, DeiC, have been appointed Programme Committee Co-Chairs. The remaining programme committee members are Jón Ingi Einarsson, RHnet Iceland, Olaf Schjelderup, Uninett Norway, Leif Johansson, Sunet Sweden, Jani Myyry, CSC/Funet Finland, Klaas Wierenga, GÉANT, and Maria Francesca Iozz, NeIC.
The upcoming Sunet Days 27 to 30 March are expected to attract more than 200 delegates. Twice a year Swedish r&e network Sunet invites its customers and users to meet at different locations around the country, and this spring the The University of Halmstad will host the event. Delegates can choose from four days of presentations, meetings, and discussions. The programme offers a variety of topics such as new developments on security, eduroam, interfederation, and cloud services.
NORDUnet is actively engaged in the Global Network Architecture initiative, a joint effort to draft a blueprint for the intercontinental R&E network interconnects, based on the latest technologies and promising developments, with a ten-year horizon. This blueprint will enable participating R&E networks to align their spending for intercontinental bandwidth.
South African r&e network SANren has now provided an important addition to the GNA by launching the SANren Open Exchange. Please watch the video for further details:
NORDUnet is a joint collaboration by the five Nordic National Research and Education Networks in Denmark (DeIC), Finland (CSC/FUNET), Iceland (RHnet), Norway (UNINETT) and Sweden (SUNET) and operates a world-class Nordic and International network and eInfrastructure services for the Nordic research and educational community.
In September 2016 NORDUnet initiated a tender for a Learning Management System.The tender has now been concluded. It is anticipated that all NRENs (as listed in the OJEU notice) could eventually benefit from the framework agreements that are awarded.
