CALL FOR DEMOS OPENS MAY 15, 2017
The SC conference series has traditionally been home to cutting-edge developments in high-performance networking, alongside those in high-performance computing, storage, and analytics. SCinet is soliciting proposals from research and industry participants that displayed new or innovative demonstrations in network testbeds, emerging network hardware, protocols, and advanced network intensive scientific applications.
Topics for this year’s Network Research Exhibition demos and experiments include (but are not limited to):
◾Novel network architecture
◾Switching and routing
◾Alternative data transfer protocols
◾Network monitoring and management, and network control
◾Network Security/encryption and resilience
◾Open clouds and storage area networks
◾HPC-related usage of GENI Racks
A selection of NRE demonstrations will be invited to be on a panel in a half-day SC17 Workshop titled, “Innovating the Network for Data Intensive Science” taking place on Monday, November 13, 2017.
NRE proposals can be submitted via a DropBox file submission folder by clicking here. This system will allow easier updating of proposals, better tracking of submissions and a single, shared repository for all submissions to be reviewed.
Members of the research community are also encouraged to include the NRE team in their planning discussions for demonstrations at SC17 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. This will ensure that your demonstration’s particular needs can be met by the SC17 SCinet infrastructure by including requirements during the design phase of its development.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the NRE team at your earliest convenience. The success of your NRE demonstration is critically important to us, and we are here to aid in your research efforts. You can also find more details on the SC17 website by clicking here.
