Program for CANS 2014

Download the CANS 2014 handbook, group photo and presentations from the I2 site.

Each CANS conference explores topics relevant to enhancing and increasing collaborative opportunities for Internet2 and its members working with Chinese universities and researchers, building upon the recent and long-term interaction and engagement between Internet2, Chinese Education and Research Network (CERNET), China Science and Technology Network (CSTNET), and the Chinese Academy of Sciences that has led to enhanced relationships, coordination, information-sharing, and improved services.

Two highlights of CANS 2014 will be a keynote address by NYU's President, John Sexton, as well as an evening reception at the Rubin Museum of Art on Tuesday September 16, which will include the exhibit, Gateway to Himalayan Art.
