ESnet’s Greg Bell to Deliver Keynote at Canadian Conference


ESnet Director Greg Bell will give the keynote address at the 2013 THINK Conference organized by ORION, the high-speed network linking 1.8 million researchers in Ontario, Canada. The conference will be held April 25, 2013, in Toronto.

This year’s THINK Conference will focus on “Extreme Data” – including the trends, the issues and what they mean for Ontario’s research, education and innovation communities. The THINK Conference will challenge organizational leaders affected by the circumstances of the day to take notice, exchange knowledge, share best practices and develop ideas that lead to innovative solutions.

According to Bell, “It’s time to start thinking about research networks as instruments for discovery, not infrastructures for service-delivery.” In his talk, Bell will describe what’s at stake in this distinction, and explain how campuses and networks in Ontario can prepare themselves to support data-intensive science collaborations and workflows.
