The e-AGE conference has established itself as an important venue for networking among experts and scientists. In 2018, e-AGE will be held under the patronage of the Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, in Amman, Jordan during 2-3 December 2018. In e-AGE18, the focus will be on demonstrated successes in using the research and education e-Infrastructures at national, regional and global levels. In short words, e-AGE18 is coming with “CAPACITY FOR TRANSFORMATION” as the main theme of the conference and all activities are centered on it.
e-AGE18 will include events, workshops and meetings centered around the following themes:
- The 11th Event on Euro-Mediterranean e-Infrastructure
- The 8th annual meeting of ASREN
- EUMEDCONNECT3 Project meeting
- AfricaConnect2 Project meeting
- Internet2 Middle East SIG Meetings
- Workshops dedicated for e-Infrastructures users
- Technical Workshops on R&E networking
Moreover, special sessions will be dedicated to specific domains, mainly focusing on experiences in connectivity and e-Infrastructure, applications and services across a variety of scientific domains. It is also important to show how research infrastructure creates tangible benefits to communities and collaborations. It is still critical to demonstrate how research connectivity can promote collaboration and innovation. Different discussions will be stimulated during e-AGE to drive outcomes and concrete results on practical steps towards developing a regional e-Infrastructure.
English will be the event language; the opening ceremony will be in Arabic and English.
