European International Academic Networking: a 20 Year Perspective.
Presented at: UNSPECIFIED.
The European international academic networking development from a number of isolated research projects into the current powerful unified system is discussed. The repeated interplay between discipline-oriented activities and generic academic computing are considered. The relationship between the European activities and those in other regions – of course including the US, but also other regions of the world is traced. The current initiatives for Europe to remain amongst the world leaders, not only in speed of network but also in helping spread the geographic reach are discussed. Finally, some conclusions and current barriers to full network usage are presented.
