TNC18 – Intelligent networks, cool edges?

Trondheim is the tech capital of Norway and we believe it offers the ideal backdrop for TNC’s stimulating theme this year. It has been 25 years since the community last​ met in Trondheim for a European networking conference. How far has the digital transformation come since then?

TNC is the community event where the research and education networks come together to share, demonstrate, discuss and explore all possible networking challenges. Th​e conference will also focus on a variety of thought-provoking sub-themes such as the power of the Internet, the responsibility of sustainability and delivery, the power of data analytics, the creation of intelligent complexity, and networking at the speed of science. Expectations are high for an event that will deliver another astounding success for our community.

YOU ARE INVITED to propose ideas for workshops, demonstrations, discussions and presentations about building a better Internet for research and education, giving special consideration to the power and responsibility that comes with open, intelligent and global networks.

We look forward to seeing you in Trondheim in 2018!
