TNC is the leading networking conference for research and education. TNC16 will be held on 12-16 June 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic and hosted by the Czech national research and education networking organisation (CESNET). The event will focus not only on the latest (networking) technology, but will also highlight people from the worldwide research and education networking community who make innovation possible.
With the TNC16 Call proposers are invited to explore the challenges that the research and education networking community faces while continuing to build the internet of people. Submissions are sought for a single presentation or a full session that attempt to answer, but are not limited to answering questions such as:
  • What is needed to further satisfy the changing research and education (networking) user needs?
  • How can NRENs best cope with the changing landscape of funding and security requirements?
  • What roles in the area of cloud services are, and are not, suitable for an NREN?
  • How can developed and developing NRENs more closely collaborate with each other, on a regional, European and global scale?
  • Which advances in technology are hot, and relevant for the NRENs, in 2016 and beyond?
