Regsiter now for the the Winter 2010 Joint Techs meeting, an international conference of network engineer to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, January 31 to February 4, 2010, and hosted by the University of Utah. 

Since 1998, the conference, co-sponsored by the ESnet Site Coordinating Committee (ESCC) and Internet2, has brought together networking expert to share their know-how, present innovative strategies and work toward common solutions to some of the biggest challenges facing research and education networks. These efforts are dedicated to ensuring that researchers have the networking resources they need to support the large data flows and distributed collaborations that make up today's science research environment.

The Winter 2010 Joint Techs Workshop track session agenda will focus on the following areas:

*Emerging Technologies will feature various components of the National Science Foundation’s GENI project, as well as other network testbed projects, new bulk data transfer tools, identity management topics and cloud services for campuses and laboratories.

*Performance Measurement and Monitoring will cover multi-domain, end-to-end network measurement projects and tools—both IP-based, and circuit-based—and include discussions on a wide range of measurement and monitoring tools and use cases, as well as best practices in application, network and device performance tuning and diagnosis. User experience and secure access will also be addressed.

*Campus Networking topics include IPv6 deployment, IP Multicast, Voice over IP, Quality of Service for voice, video and other types of real-time communications, wireless networking, network and application security and other special network infrastructure needs.

Representatives from the NSF Office of Cyberinfrastructure will attend and present the meeting to provide information on the latest funding opportunities. The conference will also present a range of tutorials, high-performance networking technology demonstrations and industry updates.
