The conference program is online now, and it offers a wide range of topics across more than 40 sessions, including special sessions on cybersecurity on R&E networks to protect users and institutions; increasing online access to overcome the digital divide and promote economic opportunity; and exciting and novel ways that research and education leaders are leveraging high-speed networks.
Conference plenaries will feature a keynote by John Delaney, professor of oceanography at the University of Washington, on detecting and recording volcanism and hydrothermal circulation; a panel discussion on the future of research and education networks; and a panel discussion on reimagining public libraries as community platforms for learning and innovation.

Three pre-conference workshops on Sunday, March 17 will offer hands-on tutorials and deep dives into Kubernetes, JupyterLab, and virtual reality systems. Workshop registration is separate from the main conference. The full-day workshops run concurrently so you may attend only one, and space is limited. See workshop details & register >
