CIARA FIU partnered with the GEFI Workshop organizers under the NSF projects: SwitchOn Workshops (NSF Award # 1443285 ) and GEFI Workshop (NSF Award # 1724805) to provide participants support. The goals were to encourage collaborative research across international boundaries, in a set of topics that are interesting to researchers in each of the participating countries:
- Investigations of the research infrastructures suitable for hosting at-scale experimentation in future internet architectures, services, and applications, and use of such infrastructures for experimental research.
- A collaboration that will encompass joint specification of system interfaces, development of interoperable systems, adoption of each other’s tools, experimental linkages of the testbeds, and experimentation that spans the infrastructures.
- Envision that students and young professors from participating nations will visit each other and collaborate deeply in these activities, in hopes of sparking friendships and life-long research collaborations between the communities.
