ESnet's Science DMZ is Focus of New Library of Training Videos Aimed at Global Audience

January 10, 2017

For members of the established research and education (R&E) networking community, attending conferences or sitting in on workshop sessions is the normal way to learn about the latest equipment, architecture, tools and technologies. But for network engineers striving to establish basic R&E infrastructure where bandwidth and other resources are scarce, the University of Oregon’s Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC) is often the primary information conduit. NSRC staff travel to… Read More »

Global Brain Initiatives Generate Tsunami of Neuroscience Data

November 22, 2016

Around the world, various 'Brain Initiatives' are generating a tsunami of neuroscience data. But without a coherent strategy to analyze, manage and understand the data, advancements in the field will be limited. That's why Berkeley Lab's Kristofer Bouchard assembled an international team of interdisciplinary researchers to come up with a plan to overcome the big data challenge. Read More »
