Presentation Transcript

Slide1: The SIS On-Line Stand at the ICT4D World Summit Exhibition demonstrates how the internet connectivity and technology has the potential to bring substantial benefits to a wide range of human activities, thus “turning the digital divide into a digital opportunity for all.” The stand uses the widespread communications technology provided by collaborating partners from a large part of the scientific community, especially from CERN and particle physics. In particular, the DataTAG Project has extended its ultra-high speed 10Gb/s trans-Atlantic testbed especially for this event to ICT4D in Palexpo. The SIS On-Line Stand features VRVS technology for high quality video-conferencing over the Internet using IP from Caltech and CERN. On the stand we will attempt to show how this video-conferencing technology - used daily by the particle physics community - can bring benefits in a variety of scenarios, including medical diagnostics and imaging, e-learning, distribution of video material including teaching lectures, and distributed conferences and discussions around the world community. The Canadian Communications Research Centre, CRC, is generously sharing some of its demonstrations with the SIS On-line Stand. In particular a demonstration of live haptic “touch and feel” feedback will show its potential use in remote medicine. A demonstration of MusicGrid will feature a jazz ensemble from the Geneva Conservatory playing with performers in another jazz ensemble in Newfoundland. Northwestern University will demonstrate their high speed video server with a variety of material including medical images and high definition television and their use in a number of scenarios. The SWITCH research network in Switzerland will feature their “Tokyo lectures” as a successful example of distance teaching. The United Nations UNOSAT satellite operations will demonstrate a “fly-through” of 3D terrain constructed virtually by combining satellite images. Caltech will show worldwide GRID and network monitoring using their MonALiSA software, and also their GRID-enabled Physics Analysis, demonstrating the potential of the GRID for collaborative work. A number of video conferences, discussion sessions and presentations by distinguished speakers are being arranged and are announced in the detailed stand programme ( The presenters will focus on the benefits that this technology has brought to their communities. Finally the SIS On-Line stand will participate in the Internet2 Megaconference V: The Largest Worldwide Videoconference over Advanced Networks, which will run for 24 hours from lunchtime on 10th December ( SIS On-Line Stand

The mission is to establish a very high bandwidth bridge between the European and American scientific communities. The current testbed is running at 10 Gigabits/second, and has been specially extended from CERN to the ICT4D exhibition. Two partners in DataTAG - Caltech and CERN - currently hold the Internet2 Land Speed Record for Data Transmission in which the equivalent of a full length DVD was transmitted to Los Angeles every 7 seconds over this testbed.
