GLORIAD: Advanced Networking and Cyberinfrastructure for Global Science and Education Collaboration

Friday, October 15 | 9:00AM–9:50AM | Ballroom A
Session Type: E2010
The Global Ring Network for Advanced Applications Development (GLORIAD) is a "ring of rings" fiber-optic network around the northern hemisphere connecting the science and education communities of partner countries (and others) with advanced communications services enabling leading-edge collaborations, from quality audio/videoconferencing to remote control of scientific instrumentation to advanced telemedical applications to high-volume data transfer. The NSF has invested $18.5 million to date, matched by roughly $200 million from international partners. This session will discuss GLORIAD and how it is promoting the use of advanced cyberinfrastructure in supporting the growing globalization of science and education.
