Welcome to TNC2013 - Innovating Together
3-6 June, Maastricht, Netherlands
The TERENA Networking Conference (TNC) is the largest and most prestigious European research networking conference - over 500 participants including decision makers, networking specialists and managers from all major European networking and research organisations, universities, worldwide sister institutions and industry representatives attend.
Through keynote speeches by renowned specialists and many parallel sessions, the Conference presents an overview of the latest developments in research networking, both in the technical field and in the areas of application and management.
The TNC2013 will be hosted by SURFnet, the Dutch National Research and Education Network and held in the picturesque city of Maastricht from 3-6 June 2013. The Treaty signed in Maastricht on February the 7th 1992 has made the city famous as the birthplace of the European Union and the single European currency, the euro. The Treaty has made Maastricht a symbol for Europe. SURFnet connects institutions in the Netherlands and the rest of the world via NetherLight (the international lightpath node in Amsterdam), AMS-IX (the world’s largest Internet node), and the GÉANT network (the pan-European communications infrastructure). SURFnet will be celebrating it's 25th anniversary and it sets the perfect scene for TNC2013.
