NRENs supporting Open Science: opportunities for coordination

25/06 14.00 - 15.30 CEST


Description

This meeting will explore the ways in which European NRENs and international RENs are already supporting Open Science, or have ambitions to do so. This could be in terms of offering services to help store, analyse, transfer and share data, contributing to national Open Science policy and strategy or collaborating with research communities.

The BoF session will brainstorm the various ways in which NRENs are supporting Open Science to identify shared activities which could benefit from collaborative activity. These could take the form of NREN partnerships, facilitation of European-wide approaches, procurement frameworks and support offered by GÉANT.

Organizer: Sarah Jones, GÉANT

Orchestration, Automation and Virtualisation: Focusing on the user

25/06 14.00 - 15.30 CEST


Description

A successful digital transformation entails flexibility, efficiency, and self-service provisioning. In other words, a user-centric approach, which implies the usage of Orchestration, Automation and Virtualisation techniques (OAV).
The OAV team in GN4-3 created several resources to help the NRENs in their journey to this digital transformation through OAV (Training, Wiki, Terminology, Blueprint, Mapping of Architectures for NRENs..) The goal of this session is to gather ideas for future work, presenting the existing resources together with use cases from the NRENs. The BoF is an opportunity for NRENs to come together to agree on common actions.

The eHealth Task Force is taking off: Boarding is now

25/06 14.00 - 15.30 CEST


Description

eHealth is an area of growing interest for our community: in the implementation of future eHealth, patients will be more an more in control of what information about their medical records will be made accessible, getting back in turn highly personalised medical services suited and tuned to respond to their specific health needs.
Genomics analysis, DNA sequencing, digital twins, AI, ML and robotics will change the landscape for the way eHealth will be provided to patients, and will provide new instruments for doctors and specialists to work.

Do we, the community of NRENs - and our connected health institutions - have a role to play in all this ?

We believe yes: join this BoF to discuss what should the GÉANT Community eHealth Task Force be focusing upon.

eduID Initiatives

25/06 14.00 - 15.30 CEST


Description

Given the eduID initiatives that are arising in our community, SURF organised an international eduID-day in March 2020 with the people involved in these initiatives.
In this BoF we will follow-up on the eduID initiatives to get updates from each other and to determine where we can join forces.

Friday

Public procurement of networking equipment in the R&E community

25/06 14.00 - 15.30 CEST


Description

This BoF will explore the GEANT framework for public procurement of optical networking equipment. It is targeted at NREN procurement specialists and network engineers who are building new optical network infrastructure. While the framework has been in place for a couple of years and has been successfully used by many NRENs, challenges still exist when applying procurement frameworks to individual NREN needs. This BoF will include GEANT speakers who will explain the framework and how GEANT used it to achieve our network build. The BoF will also include presentations from CESNET and UNINETT on how they have recently made use of the framework.

-> Phil Matthews (GEANT) to discuss GEANT framework for Optical/DWDM equipment. (15 minutes)
-> Guy Roberts (GEANT) to talk about the technical part of the Optical Line System tender and the choices made by GEANT (15 min)
-> Josef Vojtech (CESNET) to discuss their experiences of purchasing using the GEANT framework (10 min)
-> Kurosh Bozorgebrahimi to discuss the UNINETT experience with using the GEANT framework. (20 min)
-> Panel discussion (30 min)

Organizer: Guy Roberts, GÉANT

Identifying and Addressing R&E Routing Anomalies

25/06 14.00 - 15.30 CEST


Description

Adding or removing capacity from the Global R&E Network (GREN) infrastructure can have unexpected routing results that are difficult to detect and impossible to correct without coordination. With new intercontinental links coming on-line over the past few years, and more planned for the near future, we believe the time is right for our community to come together to begin addressing this issue in a more coordinated way. This BOF will bring together R & E networking engineers in an open community discussion on how to approach this problem systematically.

Organizer: Warrick Mitchell, AARNET, and Jennifer Schopf, Indiana University

NREN Sustainability Around the Globe – A Chance to Share and Discuss

25/06 14.00 - 15.30 CEST


Description

Many NRENs face challenges in developing and maintaining stakeholder support and securing funding that will ensure their ongoing sustainability. Related factors include regulatory issues and monopolies, budget-conscious financial directors at R&E institutions, changes of government, fluctuating financial markets, etc. Nevertheless, there are many success stories of NRENs that thrive despite local challenges.
This BoF aims to bring together representatives of NRENs who wish to share their experiences of meeting sustainability challenges with others who are experiencing them and are interested in learning about approaches taken around the world.
