e-AGE20, the 10th edition of the International Platform on Integrating Arab e-Infrastructure in a Global Environment will be held virtually during 15-16 December 2020. Its focus will be on the role of e-Infrastructures in the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic. e-AGE20 is also supported by the EU co-funded projects AfricaConnect3 and EUMEDCONNECT3.
e-AGE20 will be a forum to share practices and experiences that go beyond teaching online courses and sharing resources in today’s unprecedented isolation. NRENs and e-Infrastructures provide essential means to stay connected and to meet the new challenges of research and education.
e-AGE20 is coming with “Power of e-Infrastructures - Shaping the Future of Online Research and Education” as the main theme of the conference and all activities are centered on it. The conference full program will be announced in due course.
The event will comprise a high-level opening featuring CEOs of RRENs from around the world, and three other session with topics on the complex global phenomenon and scientific challenges of COVID-19 pandemic. Topics may also include the role of NRENs in the crisis and how their global integration have spurred new ways of communication and sharing in addressing the challenges at the global scale.
As per tradition, the event will be preceded by pre-conference meetings including ASREN NRENs Community meeting and other meetings under the AfricaConnect3 and EUMEDCONNECT3 projects, and it will be followed by three workshops on LIBSENSE, ORCID and Routing Security with ISOC.
Registration for the virtual e-AGE20 conference is open and free. More information about the event can be found at the event website: http://asrenorg.net/eage20/
