Higher Education, Industry Leaders To Discuss Best Practices On Becoming A Cloud-Ready Campus During EDUCAUSE 2013 Annual Conference
Experts to discuss common cloud issues, identity, trust, and the Internet2 NET+ initiative
Washington, D.C.—Oct. 9, 2013—Thousands of higher education and industry leaders from every state in the nation will discuss best practices for moving their campus to cloud technologies to benefit teaching, learning and administering during the EDUCAUSE 2013 Annual Conference, held Oct. 15-18 in Anaheim, California. More than 40 conference sessions will provide advice and resources in understanding the challenges, solutions, and best strategies for communicating about a cloud-ready campus to college presidents, provosts, deans, and other campus leaders.
"One of the top issues discussed at the EDUCAUSE 2013 Annual Conference will be challenges and best practices in adopting cloud services," said Ted Dodds, chief information officer and vice president for information technologies, Cornell University. "Campus leaders remain burdened by contracting, legal, privacy, and other issues to successfully transition their campus and our community to the cloud. To help solve the challenges, the higher education community and the technology sector are working together to address the most commonly requested cloud topics, including: trust, identity, and the Internet2 NET+ initiative to successfully deploy high quality, cloud services."

Autism and Elderly Care May Receive Boost From Collaborative Research on Advanced University Networks
The University of Missouri, The Ohio State University and Internet2 seek to advance brain science using 100-gigabit Ethernet technology and cyber-infrastructure
Washington, D.C.—Oct. 10, 2013—The University of Missouri (MU), The Ohio State University (OSU) and Internet2 today announced substantial investments in technology to support researchers who collaborate from different locations. The new cyber-infrastructure supports valuable research, including brain-imaging innovations to better detect and treat autism and new capabilities for remote elderly care.
Recent advances in brain imaging technology are generating ever-large quantities of high-resolution data. Scientists engaged in this research—which aims to improve the detection, diagnosis and treatment of autism and better elderly patient outcomes—must transport, exchange, access and analyze hundreds of terabytes of imaging data on a regular basis.
