Make The Right Connection through engaging presentations, conversations, live demonstrations of cutting-edge technology, and networking opportunities held in inspirational venues. Planning is underway for CENIC’s annual conference to be held March 5–7, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency in Monterey, California.

California attendees will be joined by colleagues from around the U.S. and international colleagues, all of whom are leaders and visionaries in research and education. Attendees will hear from noted experts about innovative uses of the CENIC network to support vibrant and diverse California research and education communities; state-of-the-art and future network technologies; wireless technologies and extending the CENIC footprint; innovation in networks and applications from our partners in the R&E community, government, healthcare, and the private sector; new strategies to ensure all California communities have access to high-speed broadband; cybersecurity and privacy; broadband public policy; and new global collaborations supported by an interconnected R&E world. In addition, a special workshop on regional research platforms building on the Pacific Research Platform will be held in conjunction with the conference.
Attendees will share insights and opinions during the conference program, as well as in informal networking settings. In addition, we will honor and celebrate the ingenuity of the founders and innovators of the CENIC community during the 2018 Innovations in Networking Awards.
