GLORIAD: Advanced Networking and Cyberinfrastructure for Global Science and Education Collaboration
Oct 15th, 2010
8:00 AM - 8:50 AM
Session Type: Featured Speaker
The Global Ring Network for Advanced Applications Development (GLORIAD) is a "ring of rings" fiber-optic network around the northern hemisphere connecting the science and education communities of partner countries (and others) with advanced communications services enabling leading-edge collaborations, from quality audio/videoconferencing to remote control of scientific instrumentation to advanced telemedical applications to high-volume data transfer. The NSF has invested $18.5 million to date, matched by roughly $200 million from international partners. This session will discuss GLORIAD and how it is promoting the use of advanced cyberinfrastructure in supporting the growing globalization of science and education.
Live Video and slides from the presentation are being provided through the generous support of Sonic Foundry.
An archive of this video will be available after the session.
