Great Plains Network Wins Award for Training and Education
The National Science Foundation has awarded the Great Plains Network a grant to support its ENCITE (Enhancing Cyberinfrastructure by Training and Engagement) program. Part of this ENCITE grant will fund a series of educational webinars on using network technology to help scientists and those who need to move large amounts of data.
The webinars start January 16, 2015, and the schedule so far is as follows:
January 16, 2015: Science Engagement: Bridging the Technical Divide by Jason Zurawski of ESnet Science
Engagement, a process of bridging the gap between the scientists who use the network and the engineers who maintain that network, is necessary as science advances. This talk will focus on how scientists and network engineers can communicate effectively and highlight success from the U.S. Department of Energy and affiliated campus researchers.
January 23, 2015: SciPass: Scaling Security to 100 Gigabits
February 2, 2015: Cyberinfrastructure Planning & Science Requirements Analysis
March 6, 2015: PerfSonar and Network Monitoring
April 4, 2015: Science DMZ Architecture, Security
