    GLORIAD: A Decentralized, Shared Model for Building and Cooperatively Managing Global Science and Education Cyberinfrastructure - (Presentation)
    The Global Ring Network for Advanced Applications Development (GLORIAD) is a network-enabled ecosystem providing advanced collaborative services to scientists, educators and students around the world. Its evolution since the late 1990s will be briefly described - with a focus on core principles, architecture, services, public/private partners and future plans - and will include an update on the GLORIAD/Taj initiative and the new "GLORIAD in Africa" program. Special attention will be placed on its decentralized model of operations and governance - and the case made for how this serves the purpose of fostering the continuous, flexible, community-driven innovation required for modern science infrastructure. Specific themes will include:

    1. the critical need for developing StarLight-type exchanges around the world for enabling a more open and dynamic environment for global networking;
    2. the key value of the GLIF in fostering a global culture for sharing both resources and genuinely open dialog;
    3. GLORIAD's new model of measurement and monitoring to transition from the old paradigm of networks as "links and services" to a global, shared fabric of infrastructure focused on addressing individual customer needs for services and performance; and
    4. how GLORIAD is beginning to leverage modern social media technologies for shared planning and operations.
