This is just a list of meetings that we think folks should know about. If some of them become particularly important or interesting, we might send email or other information out.
October 17 – 19, 2007
The GridNets conference series is an annual international meeting which provides a focused and highly interactive forum where researchers and technologists have the opportunity to present and discuss leading research, developments, and future directions in the Grid networking area. The objective of this event is to serve as both the premier conference presenting best Grid Networking research and a forum where new concepts can be introduced and explored.
The 20th Open Grid Forum - OGF20
May 7 - 11, 2007
Manchester International Convention Centre
OGF20 will be held May 7-11 in Manchester, UK and is hosted by UK e-Science and the University of Manchester. At OGF20, more than 800 grid enthusiasts from around the globe will gather for one week to further grid standards development and discuss best practices in e-Science. The event also features a two day enterprise program, led by the Grid Computing Now! KTN, that will focus on real world case studies and practical grid solutions.
We are currently inviting proposals for presentations and workshops. Please see the details below, which including the time line and URL for submissions.
2007 May 21-24
TNC 2007 will be hosted by UNI C, The Danish IT Centre for Education and Research and held in Copenhagen on 21 to 24 May 2007. Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark offers you a vivid city, rich with medieval history, modern art, culture and living - from Hans Christian Andersen's “Little Mermaid” to the world's oldest monarchy, and from the free town of Christiania to the downtown castles, museums and shops.

Lighting the Blue Touchpaper for UK e-Science - Closing Conference of ESLEA Project
26 March 2007 - 28 March 2007
venue: The George Hotel, 19-21 George Street, EH2 2PB
ESLEA (Exploitation of Switched Lightpaths for eScience Applications) , an EPSRC-funded project, aims to demonstrate the potential benefits of circuit-switched optical networks (lightpaths) to the UK e-Science community. This is being achieved by running a number of “proof of benefit” pilot applications over UKLight, the UK’s first national wavelength agile optical research network. UKLight provides a new way for researchers to obtain dedicated “lightpaths” between remote sites and to deploy and test novel networking methods and technologies. It facilitates collaboration on global projects by providing a point of access to the fast growing international optical R&D infrastructure.
2007 January 22-26
Venue: Edsa Shangri-la Hotel, Ortigas Business District
The 23rd APAN Meeting will be held from Jan 22-26, 2007 in Manila.
This 5-day event will highlight tutorials, oral presentations and demonstrations covering advanced network technologies and applications. There will be plenty of opportunity to interact with researchers and practitioners from Asia Pacific and beyond during this meeting.
January 15 – 19, 2007
Venue: School of Engineering and Science, University of Chile
Interworking 2006 will be the eighth event in the INTERWORKING series of bi-annual symposiums. The previous events attracted a large number of comprehensive contributions and participation of delegates from around the world. In the past, issues were mainly concerned with network aspects. With complex, heterogeneous services and applications being developed, implemented and offered in a competitive environment, it seems appropriate to include the focus of Interworking and Interoperability with the service and application layers and their respective infrastructures, across fixed, mobile and wireless/nomadic networks to provide the ubiquitous networking features.
