TERENA invites you to register for the TERENA Networking Conference (TNC2012) which takes place on 21-24 May 2012 in Reykjavik, Iceland, hosted by the Icelandic national research and education networking organisation, RHnet, and the University of Iceland.
Through keynote speeches by renowned specialists and many parallel sessions, the conference will present an overview of the latest developments in research networking, both in the technical field and in the areas of application and management. This year’s theme is “Networking to Services” and will focus on network technologies, infrastructures and services that support research and education, examining the following areas: ‘bits & wires’, ‘supporting collaboration’, ‘infrastructure & services’, ‘social & secure’, and ‘using the stuff’.
Take advantage of lower-cost early registration fees, available until midnight on 13 April. The registration fee includes access to all conference sessions, materials and social events.
Students can apply to attend the conference free of charge: a limited number of free registration places will be available for bona fide postgraduate students, sponsored by Cisco Systems and Internet Society.
Different ways to participate
Lightning talks: Like last year, TNC2012 will feature the opportunity to give a five-minute presentation focusing, for example, on an idea, a successful project or an invitation to collaborate.
Posters: Another way to make your ideas more visible at the conference is to present a poster. A poster presentation is an excellent advertisement tool for projects, concepts and ideas, and can act as a great conversation starter with other TNC2012 participants.
Registration can be done online or using a downloadable form (.pdf): information about this and how to submit a poster, lightning talk, or application for sponsored student attendance is available athttps://tnc2012.terena.org/web/participate/guidelines.
