An Invitation from Cisco Systems

Again this year, Cisco Systems would like to invite you to attend their Cisco Workshop taking place in conjunction with this year’s TERENA Conference.

The Cisco Workshop is a special one-and-a-half-day event, with leaders from National Research Networks, Universities and Research Institutes exchanging views on the future of Internet technologies and architecture and how these apply to research and higher education.

Agenda highlights include:

  • Is There a Future for IP? - John Harper, Vice President Core IP Engineering
  • Datacenter Architectures for Highest Bandwidth Applications - Walter Dey, Distinguished Systems Engineer
  • Interdomain QoS Routing - Dave Ward, Cisco Fellow
  • Integration of IP and DWDM for new levels of network efficiency and service flexibility - Keith Jones, Technical Marketing Engineer
  • Service Control in NREN Networks - Eilon Ashkenazi, Technical Marketing Engineer
  • Experimental Next Generation Internet in Europe - Javad Boroumand, Academic Research & Technology Initiatives Manager
  • BGP Fast Convergence - Clarence Filsfils, Distinguished Systems Engineer
  • Security for GRID networking - Michael Behringer, Distinguished Systems Engineer

These presentations will include a very technical look into future developments conducted by some of Cisco's senior researchers. During the presentations, our speakers will be pleased to share with you our long-term strategy and address how these technological advances can bring a unique advantage to your organisation.

Dinner: There will also be an evening dinner on Thursday 18th which we would be delighted if you could attend.

We look forward to seeing you at the Cisco Systems Workshop in Catania. The workshop is free of charge; the only cost to you will be your transportation ticket and your hotel accommodation. In return, you will receive an unprecedented insight into the development of our latest technologies.

If you are attending the TERENA Conference you may extend your conference hotel reservation for the nights required to attend the Cisco Workshop, but you must register separately for the Cisco Workshop using the online registration form you will find on the Conference web site.
