Title: Update on TERENA activities

Presenter: Catalin Meirosu
Organization: TERENA

Abstract: : TERENA is a not-for-profit association of the National Research and Education Networks in Europe. TERENA offers a forum to collaborate, innovate and share knowledge in order to foster the development of Internet technology, infrastructure and services to be used by the research and education community. In addition to the 33 national members, TERENA has 2 international members and a series of associate members (including equipment manufacturers and telecom operators). The presentation will focus on TERENA’s Technical Programme, the main vehicle of the organisation in supporting joint work in developing, evaluating, testing, integrating and promoting new networking, middleware and application technologies. Highlights of the activities in the TERENA task forces on Computer Emergency and Incident Response Teams (TF-CSIRT), Enhanced Communication Services (TF-ECS), Videoconference Service Studies (TF-VSS), European Middleware Coordination and Collaboration (TF-EMC2) and TF-Mobility will be reviewed. A brief status report on eduroam, an infrastructure that allows for inter-institutional visitor roaming in the European and APAN zones will be presented. The NRENs and Grid workshops, a bi-annual event dedicated to issues common to research and education networks and Grids, will be presented and findings of the last two workshops summarised. TERENA is carrying out a foresight study on the evolution of research and education networking in Europe (EARNEST). The most interesting findings of the 2006 edition of the TERENA NREN Compendium will be highlighted. TERENA is also involved in several projects funded by the European Commission. The activities of the 6DISS and NoAH projects will be outlined.

Title: BeSTGRID: Collaboration Capability for eResearch in New Zealand
Presenter: Paul Bonnington
Organization: Director - eResearch, University of Auckland Director - BeSTGRID: Broadband enabled Science and Technology GRID

Abstract: BeSTGRID (Broadband enabled Science and Technology GRID) is a NZ Tertiary Education Commission Innovation and Development Fund project which builds true eResearch capability on the new Kiwi Advanced Research and Education Network.
BeSTGRID will deliver mechanisms, methods and tools that facilitate collaboration on shared information, sharing of computational resources and online visualization of instruments and experiments. There is an emphasis on developing virtual research environments for exemplars in international collaboration through the use of technologies such as EVO, AccessGRID, JSR168 Portlets, SAKAI, Shibboleth, Globus, and SRB. BeSTGRID focuses on how to make eResearch work, to create a fully-functional eResearch ecosystem for New Zealand.

Title: Asian Digital Heritage Exchange Consortium and the Need for a Common Standards in Technology and Procedure for Digitization and Archiving

Presenter: Suhaimi Napis
Organization: Asian Digital Exchange Forum

Abstract: Digital Heritage Forum was initiated through the good efforts of KISDI and is designed to creating a consensus on digitalizing cultural heritage using cutting-edge technology across the Asian region and promoting international cooperation to this end. Experts and scholars from Korea, China, Japan, Thailand, and Vietnam have previously participated in the meetings and workshop reviewing the progress in digitalizing cultural heritage and discussing long-term plans. In his speech on International Cooperation to Digitalize Asian Cultural Heritage, Professor Hyun Kim of the Academy of Korean Studies proposed that Asian countries recognize the need to develop a long-term plan and cooperate with one another in research and survey. KISDI's International Research and Cooperation Group Director Inuk Chung said, "Digitalizing cultural heritage will be an important issue in the future. So far, there is no international standard to categorize tangible or intangible and past or modern cultural assets. Each country has its own standard” During previous meetings of The Forum several presentations were made on digital contents of cultural heritages efforts of several Asian countries. In the last two meetings of The Forum the demonstration include more diverse contents from non-Asian partners in North America and Europe. Asian DHX Forum is designed to increase awareness to digitalize cultural heritages in Asia and promote international exchange and cooperation. The Forum is significant in that it provides Asian people with an opportunity to share the progress in digitalizing cultural heritage contents in each country and explore how to facilitate the progress further. The Forum aims to progress with its three main activities: (1) Digitization of Asian cultural heritage, (2) Exchange of digitalized cultural heritage (3) Mapping future direction of Asian DHX cooperation. The Forum is envisaged to be a good opportunity to reinforce international cooperation to digitise Asian cultural heritage. It is of extreme important for each member countries to continue to exchange thoughts and explore common plans and goals to promote digital heritage exchange so that efforts to preserve and archive cultural heritage will have a strong foundation in terms of developing common standards and procedures for both the technological and the humanities aspects. Asian Digital Heritage Exchange Forum protem committee has been formed during the recent meeting held in Seoul, Korea on 16 October, 2006 and Associate Professor Dr. Faridah Noor Mohd Noor was nominated as Convener. Representatives from USA, Korea, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia were present at the inaugural protem committee meeting.
