Connecting the Poles: The Final Frontier of Research and Education Networking?

Connecting the Poles: The Final Frontier of Research and Education Networking? AprilApr 21 2022 11:00am - 01:00pm

Webinar/Workshop/Info Session

Are the poles the final frontiers of research and education (R&E) networking? While there is an array of terrestrial, marine, and atmospheric instruments that stream data to R&E networks - and thus to researchers worldwide - polar research instruments and the valuable data they collect remain disconnected from the global web of R&E networks. Given the tremendous importance of polar regions in understanding climate change, what are the technical, political, and research implications of connecting the Arctic and Antarctica to the global research and education network?

Come learn from Dr. David Holland, who studies sea level change in the Arctic and Antarctica, who will provide an overview of his current research and the challenges in sharing data collected at the poles. Dr. Holland is a Professor of Mathematics and Atmosphere-Ocean Science at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, Director of the Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (EFDL) in New York City, and Director of the Center for Sea Level Change at New York University Abu Dhabi.

Then hear from Paola Arellano, Executive Director of REUNA, who is leading the charge to connect Patagonia to the NREN in Chile and thus to the global NREN community, or GREN.

Following these presentations join us for a round table with NREN leaders including Luis Eliecer Cadenas, Executive Director, RedCLARA; Jim Ghadbane, President and CEO, CANARIE; and Howard Pfeffer, President and CEO, Internet2.

The webinar will be presented in English but simultaneous interpretation to French, Spanish and Portuguese is available.

Ce webinaire se donnera en anglais, avec interprétation simultanée en français, en espagnol et en portugais.

    Organizer of Connecting the Poles: The Final Frontier of Research and Education Networking?
    CANARIE connects Canadians to each other and to the world. Our programs equip Canadian researchers, students, and startups to excel on the global stage. Together with our thirteen provincial and territorial partners, we form Canada’s National Research and Education Network. This ultra-high-speed network connects Canada’s researchers, educators, and innovators to each other and to global data, technology, and colleagues. Beyond the network, we fund and promote the development of software for research and national efforts to manage data generated from research. To strengthen the security of Canada’s research and education sector, we collaborate with our partners in the NREN, government, academia, and the private sector to fund, implement, and support cybersecurity initiatives. We also provide identity management services to the academic community and boost Canada’s startups with cloud resources and expertise in emerging technologies. Established in 1993, we are a non-profit corporation, with most of our funding provided by the Government of Canada.
