NLR, Internet2 at University of Kentucky's CI Days

Here's a photo from the joint NLR - Internet2 poster session at Cyberinfastructure (CI) Days at the University of Kentucky February 22-23, by Dan Updegrove, a consultant to NLR, and Russ Hobby, a chief technical architect for Internet2 .

Dan and Russ described how high-powered research and education networks like NLR and Internet2 are enabling innovative applications ranging from collaborative science, open science grid, remote instrumentation, multipoint conferencing and TelePresence.

CI Days are sponsored by a consortium of federal agencies to raise awareness of the benefits of an integrated, cyberinfrastructure and identify gaps in current capabilities.
