Share

TNC2014The TERENA Networking Conference (TNC) is the largest and most prestigious European research networking conference, with more than 650 participants attending this annual event. TNC brings together decision makers, managers, networking and collaboration specialists, and identity and access management experts from all major European networking and research organisations, universities, worldwide sister institutions, as well as industry representatives.

Through keynotes speeches by renowned specialists, varying parallel sessions, demonstrations and presentations, the Conference presents participants with a unique overview of the latest developments in research networking, both in the technical field and in the area of application and management.

TNC2014, its 30th edition, will be hosted by HEAnet, Ireland’s National Education & Research Network between 19-22 May 2014 in Dublin (Baile Átha Cliath). A bustling city with a population of more than 1.7 million, and 100 different nationalities, Dublin is a city of many layers among which every visitor can find their niche. Though it has a genuine cosmopolitan feel, Dublin retains its own distinct culture, expressed through a love of literature, drama and traditional music.

HEAnet is Ireland’s National Education and Research Network, providing cutting edge Internet, associated ICT and e-Infrastructure services to Educational and Research organisations throughout Ireland. Established in 1983 by the Irish Universities with the support of the Higher Education Authority, HEAnet’s e-Infrastructure services underpin academic research and education activity in Ireland with approximately 200,000 students & staff (third-level) and approximately 800,000 students & staff (first and second-level) relying on the HEAnet network each day for their learning and research needs. It is HEAnet that connects these Irish learners and researchers to the Internet, on-line educational resources, and to fellow national educational and research networks in Europe, the USA and the rest of the world.
