UH Information Technology Services (ITS) is once again hosting the "Techs in Paradise" (TIP) series of technical networking workshops & meetings in January 2013 at the East West Center. TIP 2013 brings together hundreds of participants from both the Internet2 and Asia Pacific Advanced Networking (APAN) communities, along with ESNet. This is the only time these groups from East and West meet together; UH hosted previous TIP events in 2001, 2004 & 2008.
Meetings start on Jan. 13 and run through Jan. 18. Highlights include sessions on 100Gbps networks, Software Defined Networking, IPv6, advanced network performance monitoring and management, dynamic capacity assignment, advanced telemedicine sessions and demonstrations, and updates on U.S., government, and international research networks. There are also a variety of tutorials and workshops available.
The TIP 2013 website with full program can be found at: http://events.internet2.edu/2013/tip/
We would love to see local folks register for and attend the meeting, tutorials and workshops. A few additional special options for students and locals:
VOLUNTEERS - We need volunteers to assist with the conference in various capacities. This is a unique opportunity to participate and interact with the leading Internet network engineers and researchers as they showcase their "bleeding edge" applications and discoveries.
