NSF to host distinguished lecture series on large scale networking

September 06, 2001

The National Science Foundation (NSF) will host the first of a Large Scale Networking (LSN) Distinguished Networking Lecture Series beginning on September 11, 2001. The series is sponsored by the federal LSN Working Group, which coordinates research among NSF, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Institutes of Health, NASA and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The talks will help promote a national discussion of advanced networking topics for science and engineering research community. LSN research and infrastructure requirements are rapidly changing, and speakers will address issues that they expect to shape this field over the next five to seven years.
Journalists are invited to attend any of the talks in this series, to be held at NSF headquarters in Arlington, VA. The lectures will also be available via the web at http://www.ngi-supernet.org/conferences.html, requiring RealPlayer (available for free at http://www.realnetworks.com/).

NOTE: All lectures begin at 2:00 eastern.
