CANS2016 To Be Held at Rice University
In a little over two months, an exceptional community of US and Chinese networking and applications experts will convene with domain scientists and researchers from the two countries, tapping their combined expertise to figure out the best ways of leveraging research and education (R&E) networks to advance important R&E objectives.
Over the past 15 years, the annual gathering, known as the Chinese-American Networking Symposium—now in its 17th year—has alternated between locations in the US and China (with previous events taking place in Chengdu and New York City, for example). This year a group of nearly a hundred experts will meet October 17–19, 2016, at host Rice University in Houston, Texas, to discuss topics including scientific research collaboration, IPv6, end-to-end support, Identity and authenticated access, global education, and university technology management.
The theme of this year’s symposium, “One Network – One World,” reflects the interconnected nature of today’s R&E world and the importance of working together to overcome today’s most pressing science and research challenges.
There are still spaces left. If you are a domain scientist participating in a US-China collaboration, a network specialist supporting such collaborations, or a technology executive on a US campus hoping to learn more about working with China, register now!
