TNC17 - The Art of Creative Networking, 29 May - 2 June 2017, Linz, Austria

TNC17 - The Art of Creative Networking will take place in the picturesque UNESCO City of Media Arts of Linz, Austria, between 29 May - 2 June 2017, at Austrian Academic Computer Network (ACOnet), the Austrian National research and education network (NREN) for science, research, education, and culture.

The TNC17 Networking Conference is the largest and most prestigious European research networking conference, with more than 650 participants attending this annual event. TNC brings together decision makers, managers, networking and collaboration specialists, and identity and access management experts from all major European networking and research organisations, universities, worldwide sister institutions, as well as industry representatives.

Through keynotes speeches by renowned specialists, varying parallel sessions, demonstrations and presentations, the Conference presents participants with a unique overview of the latest developments in research networking, both in the technical field and in the area of application and management.

Research and education communities are not only using the network to support science, the arts and humanities, but they also have to be creative in the way technologies are deployed. Technical innovation can often move faster than society, but the constant changes provide opportunities for inventive, resourceful and visionary solutions.
