MARCH 19-22, 2017 | UC SAN DIEGO

This year's conference marked the 20th anniversary of CENIC's founding. Sessions included big-data initiatives and projects that will strengthen California communities.

This gathering of thought-leaders promises to deepen understanding and appreciation of the work being done by all our communities in education, research, culture, and health. This unique conference has evolved but kept its original premise of being the perfect setting to make new connections and catch up with colleagues.

The Innovations in Networking Awards

Innovations in Networking Awards are given annually at the conference by CENIC to highlight exemplary innovations which leverage ultra high-bandwidth networking, particularly where those innovations have the potential to revolutionize the ways in which instruction and research are conducted or where they further the deployment of broadband in underserved areas.
