CENIC '07 "Innovations in Networking"

* * * * *

Call for Awards

The Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) seeks to highlight network applications and projects by identifying exemplary innovations that leverage the network and have the potential to improve the way instruction and research is conducted, even when the impact of the innovation may not be felt immediately.

CENIC is seeking nominations from CalREN participants for the most innovative uses of the network in 2006. Awards will be given for innovations in the following four categories:

  • Education Applications
  • High Performance Research Applications
  • Experimental/Developmental Applications
  • Gigabit/Broadband Applications

Applications and projects focused on research, teaching and learning activities involving multiple segments of the K-20 community and/or international collaborations that have been developed within 2005-2006 are encouraged.

A committee of distinguished academicians and leaders in the field of networking and education will determine the award winners on the basis of submitted materials, and additional interviews if necessary.

CENIC will present the awards at its 11th annual conference March 12-14, 2007, at the San Diego Marriott La Jolla Hotel and Convention Center. Award winners will also be given the opportunity to present and discuss their application in a special session at the conference.

Nomination Procedure

The deadline for submission of nominations is January 31, 2007, by 5:00 p.m. Nominations may be submitted via e-mail to cenic2007@lists.cenic.org. Submissions may be made by the individual(s) who worked on the project, or by others, and should include:
