This workshop will review the requirements and plans, and the key issues that must be addressed to meet the needs for transatlantic networking for the LHC experiments over the next five years. Representatives of the experiments,leading user-groups, CERN, US LHCNet and major national and continental networks on both sides of the Atlantic will come together with the aim of developing a common vision. Operational requirements and architectural concepts will be discussed in order to arrive at concrete proposals for evolving the infrastructure of today to match the experiments developing computing models. This will be done in the context of changes on the world scene as the next generation of higher speed networks emerge during the next 5 years.
Information on how to reach CERN can be found at the following "web page". Please note that visitors will need a badge to get onto the CERN campus. (Please remember to tick the visitor's card box when registering for the workshop).
If you need to book accomodation for your stay, there are various options. One option is to stay at the CERN hostel which offers very basic rooms with shower and WC on the CERN campus. Please make sure you book early, as these rooms are often fully booked.
A list of hotels offering preferential rates to CERN in neighbouring France and around Geneva can be found here. Please note that hotels on the French side of the boarder are easiest reached by car as public transport is scarce.
To obtain a wireless access, you need to register your laptop. Please go to the IT department website. The contact person should be Kristina Gunne (IT-DI).
