i2CAT participates in next “RedCLARA Virtual Day”

RedCLARA, the organization that implements and manages the Latin America NRENs network infrastructure, organizes monthly a thematic “Virtual Day” where experts in the corresponding subject present short talks and answer attendants questions.

Next April 24th i2CAT is going to participate in the “1st Future Internet Virtual Day” by giving 2 conferences.

What is a “Virtual Day”?

A “Virtual Day” is an online event where several experts make presentations about a subject and then answer questions from the attendants. It is intended for an academic audience from other fields different from the one presented, in order to disseminate the subjects among other fields’ professionals.

“Virtual Days” are organized by RedCLARA in collaboration with different entities depending on the subject to be presented. Those events consist in 4 presentations, usually about 15-20 minutes long, and then a final questions round. Presentations are broadcasted via streaming and attendants can participate through Skype.

What is the “1st Future Internet Virtual Day” about?

Next “Virtual Day” will be held on April 24th and will be focused in Future Internet, specifically in what are the next steps and projects and where is FI going in several Latin America countries and Europe.
