New York University (NYU) is proud to be the official host of the 2014 Chinese American Network Symposium (CANS). Next year’s symposium will build on the rich Internet2 US-China Collaboration Initiative, a multi-year, multi-path collaboration program between U.S. and Chinese researchers, scientists, educators, and leaders in higher education. The program will bring them together to discuss key issues regarding network deployment, global cyberinfrastructure, and interoperability in support of research and education in the US and China, with the likelihood of enhancing international collaborations in a broad range of disciplines.
The Chinese American Networking Symposium (CANS) is an annual event held alternatively in the USA and China with the continued goal of working together to promote interoperability and seamless networking and collaboration in research and education. The initiative was formed in the summer of 1998 by the Chinese Association for Science and Technology (CAST), USA, and the University of Maryland (UMCP) and co-sponsored by the China Education and Research Network (CERNET) and the China Science and Technology Network (CSTNET). In January, 1999, the first event was held in Washington, D.C. and saw more than 50 executives, network industry leaders, and officials from China, and over 60 participants from the USA. Amongst the Chinese attendees were members from the education and research community and the major Internet service providers in China: China Education and Research Network (CERNET), China Science and Technology Network (CSTNET), China Commercial Network (ChinaNet), and representatives from the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Information Industries, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and some Chinese local governments. With great success in years past, CANS reconvenes in 2014 at New York University.
