CENIC '07: Making Waves Call for Proposals

* * * * *

The Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) will hold its 11th annual conference March 12-14, 2007, at the San Diego Marriott La Jolla Hotel.

The CENIC 2007 Program Committee is seeking presentations, demonstrations, and panel discussions focused on network-enabled applications and research related to the 2007 conference theme, Making Waves.

We are planning for presentations that cover technology and infrastructure, teaching and learning, application development and use, trends, and/or future developments in network technology and related applications. Presentations focused on research, teaching and learning activities involving multiple segments of the K-20 community, and/or international collaborations are encouraged. Projects or studies to be featured may be works-in-progress. The conference venue will be connected to CalREN, NLR and Internet2 to enable live demonstrations of content or capability.

Past topics have included optical networking, teragrid computing, network security, implementing IPv6, end-to-end connectivity, quality of service, last mile solutions, wireless technology, collaborative music and dance, and collaborative medicine.

In keeping with this year’s theme, we are especially interested in presentations that cover the following topics:

  • Astronomy
  • Disaster Management/Recovery
  • Grids and "Grids for Kids"
  • Oceanography
  • Optical networking
  • Sensor Nets
  • Tsunami/Earthquake studies
  • "Waves of the Future"
  • Wireless waves

How to Submit a Proposal

Proposals may be submitted via e-mail to cenic2007@lists.cenic.org describing the presentation, demonstration or panel discussion. Proposals should be no longer than three pages and should be submitted in MS Word, PDF or plain text format. Please include the following information:

  • The title of your presentation
  • An brief abstract of the proposed presentation topic
  • The presentation type (presentation, demonstration or panel)
  • A short biography of all presenters
  • An estimate of the time required for your presentation
  • Any presentation requirements, including network requirements

The Call for Presentations is now closed. A limited number of slots may be available closer to the conference date for topics that are exceptionally timely or important.

The program committee will review proposals, and presenters will be notified of acceptance by November 30, 2006. To help with presentation scheduling, selected presenters may be asked for an interim set of slides in January 2007. Final presentation slides are due by March 1, 2007. General conference registration will open on November 1, 2006. Reminders will be sent when registration opens. General questions about the program or proposals may be addressed to the Program Co-Chairs, at cenic2007@lists.cenic.org.
