[CENIC 2012: Beyond the Network Call for Presentations]

The Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) will hold its 16th annual conference, Beyond the Network, March 12-14, 2012, at the Sheraton hotel in Palo Alto, CA.

The CENIC 2012 Program Committee is now accepting proposals for presentations, demonstrations, and panel discussions focused on network-enabled applications and research. Proposals may be submitted via e-mail to cenic2012proposals@cenic.org. Proposals should be no longer than three pages and should be submitted in RTF, PDF, or plain text format. The deadline for proposals is November 18, 2011.

Presentations typically fall into one of the following categories: technology/infrastructure, teaching and learning, application development and use, trends/future developments in network technology and related applications. Presentations focused on research, teaching and learning activities involving multiple segments of the K-20 community, and/or international collaborations are especially encouraged. Projects or studies to be featured may be works-in-progress. The conference venue will have broadband connection to CalREN, NLR and Internet2 to enable live demonstrations of content or capability.

We are especially interested in presentations about projects and initiatives that benefit from access to broadband networks and/or incorporate use of network technologies. The 2011 conference program provides examples of the types of presentations we are seeking and can be viewed at http://cenic2011.cenic.org/program.

Please include the following information in your proposal:

  • Name, title and contact information of submitter (e-mail address and telephone number, please)
  • The title of your presentation
  • A brief abstract of the proposed presentation topic
  • The presentation type (i.e. presentation, demonstration or panel discussion)
  • A short (1-2 sentences) biography of all presenters
  • An estimate of the time required for your presentation (keep in mind most slots are no more than 20 minutes)
  • Any presentation requirements (i.e. special equipment required, particular network requirements)

The program committee will review proposals, and presenters will be notified of acceptance by December 16, 2011. Final presentation slides are due by March 9, 2012.

General conference registration will open on November 7, 2011. General questions about the program or proposals may be addressed to CENIC via e-mail cenic2012-info@cenic.org.
