|Pictures from the other days|

Ulf Tonelid with his new director of NORDUnet: Valter Nordh
The opening session begins with a live performance using LOLA
shown on a screen larger than anything we have seen before
The perforance was very nice, and a considerable technical achievement,
but when you are expecting a short intro and get a full 12 minute
perforamnce you are a little unsure as audience what kind of experience
you are in for.
The opening welcome
...on a backdrop that warps back and forth...
...but the warp speed is different for different segments of the screen.
First, it looks like an error, but it is meant as an artistic effect.
Welcome by Andreas Dudler, chairman of the GÉANT board
and the CET Erik Huizer
An important feature of the opening session is a message from
Yevhenii Preobrazhenskyi from URAN, the Ukranian Research Network
describing the very challenging reality of operating a network in a
country under attack.
A welcome from the local hosting organization, the Italian NREN GARR
The keynote speaker is both local and global. The nobel peace prize
who talks about who human behaviour has be integrated in the
climate models and other aspects of the future of the earth and climate
The huge screen and the whole production of this event has evolved
- thanks to PSNC and NORDUnet - to a point where it is so
that I can hardly imagine how it could evolve further. But don't you
worry - the PSNC and NORDUnet guys will come up with something new
next year, too.
More of the professional equipment brought to TNC by PSNC - a large
and WiFi access points distributed in the room
Another "professional" feature is the stage smoke. It is supposed to be
harmless, but my respiratory system is not so sure
An impressive setup for the production of the show
The GÉANT community award is this year awarded to
Tryfon Chiotis from GÉANT who deserves this more than anybody
for his kingpin role in the project, the community and in GÉANT
and Paul Dekkers from SURF who did the first design of eduroam and who
has continued to play a vital role for this an other services
The Vietsch medal is awarded to
Natalia Manola, OpenAIRE
The NORDUnet tech guys having lunch - partly in one of the few places
Mads Freek from DeiC considering the next steps of development
The lunch area in the other building still has managable queue size at
the beginning of the lunch break
Natalia Manola from OpenAIRE and
Veronika di Luna from GÉANT
When there are no customers in the real environment, you can always have
a meeting with some online
People@TNC: Joakim Allerup and Claus Gohr from DeiC
The first strike og lightning sessions is chaired by Nicole Harris from
GÉANT - not a stranger to the podium herself
...and Anna Wilson of HEAnet to whom the same thing applies (indeed)
They promote Jan Meijer from SIKT to become "his royal highness".
...a title that apparently pleases him.
However, Microdep measurements are as serious a topic as they come
Thijs Kinkhorst from SURF with a very appealing small service: A URL
shortener made and operated by the NREN
The most moving lightning talk was given by Guy Halse from TENET in
...makeing us all aware that a digital divide still exists on many
levels between the "Global West" and the developing world
Normally, we don't think of "the long tail" when it comes to mobile
When we don't make apps available in for instance the Huawei app-store,
it is not at big issue in Europe where only every 20th phone is a
Huawei, but in Africa, it is every 3rd phone.
Minette Henriksson and Markus Schneider are the main responsible people
in SUNet for the services supporting collaboration and education: Zoom,
Kaltura, LMS procurement and much more.
A look at the main plenary room from the technical support room...
...where my good colleagues Anders Mundt Due and Bo Staahle was working
at that moment
This slide certainly shows the difference between a standard
commercial network where you can more or less predict traffic as opposed
to research network traffic, that has a much more erratic character.
Drinks coupons could be used on three bars in the city centre
...and surprisingly, these coupons did not only provide a drink, but
also a very fancy variety of snacks
