The Arab States Research and Education Network (ASREN) released the agenda for the e-AGE20, the 10th edition of the International Platform on Integrating Arab e-Infrastructure in a Global Environment, which will be held virtually during 15-16 December 2020, under the theme: “Power of e-Infrastructures – Shaping the Future of Online Research and Education”.
The two-day event features 30 renowned speakers and experts from across the global research and education community. The presenters will share their experiences and debate on the complex global phenomenon and scientific challenges that go beyond teaching online courses and sharing resources in today’s unprecedented isolation, with a focus on the role of e-Infrastructures in the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The e-AGE20 will comprise a high-level opening with a roundtable discussion on “Working Globally” featuring CEOs of Regional Research and Education Networks from around the world, and three other session with topics on Global Support, Regional and Global R&E Communities and Open Science and Open Access.
The conference will also feature one-day online workshops on LIBSENSE, ORCID and Routing Security as part of preconference activities.
Our sincere thanks go to those who are kindly supporting this event including: European Union co-funded projects AfricaConnect3 and EUMEDCONNECT3, GÉANT and TAG.Global, Sponsors: AFRINIC, Internet Society and RIPE NCC, and Media Partner: DIGITAL MEETS CULTURE.
Registration for the virtual e-AGE20 conference is open and free. This is a vital time for the Research and Education Community and we feel that it is important that as many people as possible are able to attend and share ideas to contribute to the future success of Research and Education Networks and provide the opportunity to link and share experiences and ideas before what we hope will be a more normal gathering in e-AGE21.
