TNC2014 proceedings available


TERENA is pleased to release the proceedings from the 2014 TERENA Networking Conference. Sixteen papers were selected from more than one hundred submissions that were presented at TNC2014 and published with summaries of the papers and the conference, written by Erik Huizer, chair of the programme committee.

The proceedings, with ISBN/EAN code 978-90-77559-24-6 and including individually downloadable papers, are at www.terena.org/publications/tnc2014-proceedings.

The theme of the conference,'Networking with the World', encompassed two fundamental concepts: the importance of 'networking and networks', and striving for improvement on that front, as well as 'the World', and the importance of collaboration outside the academic environment.

The selected papers cover both research and practical approaches to some of the challenges faced by today's research and education networks. In keeping with the conference theme, one thing they have in common is demonstrating innovation in networking with the world. Topics covered in this year's proceedings are:

  • cloud computing
  • eduroam and identity management
  • application of Software Defined Networking (SDN)
  • monitoring and performance management
  • business models and strategy.
