Applications that transcend the globe

Over the past few years, more and more National Research and Education (NREN) has sprung up across the globe especially in less developed countries. They have been seen as critical infrastructure to bridge the digital divide. Regional Research and Education Networks (RRENs)has also appeared in various part of the world, eg. Central Asia Research and Education Network(CAREN), Trans-EurAsia Information Network(TEIN). One of the major drivers of NREN and RRENs success is the applications that it has enabled over the years and the collaboration and community that it has nurtured. Yet there is more that the network community can do by working together with the various application communities. The session will have the domain experts/champions speaking on their application and the success and challenges faced in building the community, eg. Telemedicine, Square Kilometer Array, Glacier and Climate change monitoring.
