i2CAT at TNC 2011

Once more, we joined the European NREN community at the Terena Networking Conference 2011 at the gorgeous city of Prague. This year we had the great chance to present two of our projects, Mantychore and RINA.

You can find the presentation’s slides and videos here:

Eduard Grasa presented a good introduction to one of our most ambitious research lines, the collaboration with the RINA project, a Cleant Slate architecture promoted by Prof. John Day.

On the other hand, I had the opportunity to share the session with William Johnston and Steve Cotter from ESnet. I’m quite happy of the question round and interest that the Mantychore presentation arised. Lots of interest contacts and collaborations are on the pipeline. Stay tunned ;)

As usual, you can also find Martin Bech’s yearly gallery here ;)
