Thursday 20th April 2023
SIG-NGN is the Special Interest Group on Next Generation Networks.
This meeting of the 11th meeting of the SIG will be held in Prague, Czech Republic.
Pod Vodárenskou Věží 1
182 00 Prague 8
Meeting room: Solid/1.NP/P.23/1 (Solid Sál - 1)
This SIG-NGN meeting is a co-located event with the LHCONE meeting: https://indico.cern.ch/event/1234127/
"Large science experiments and networking futures"
SIG-NGN will be holding its 11th meeting as a in person workshop on 20 April 2023. The meeting will be hosted jointly with the LHCONE meeting in Prague. We will have invited speakers representing some of the largest science communities, including HEP, SKA, DOE presenting their future vision and requirements. As well, networking experts from the NREN community will present current and future network capabilities. The workshop will conclude with a discussion group to try and map requirements and capabilities, with a goal to leave both scientists and network engineers better informed about the future. Which is always bright.

Introduction and welcome
Edoardo Martelli (CERN)
09:10 - 10:30 ('80)
What R&E networks are doing for Big Science?
The session will discuss the services and infrastructure provided by R&E networks, how they support big science users and their needs of large data transfers, and future plans of R&E Networks.
Host: Mian Usman (GÉANT)

Big science user requirements I
This session will discuss the network capacity requirements of big science users and how these requirements are evolving as scientific research becomes increasingly data-intensive.
Host: Lars Fischer (NORDUnet)
The LHC experiments are facing a ten-fold increase in throughput requirements for the High-Luminosity upgrade. In addition, the

Big science user requirements II
Host: Rudolf Vohnout (CESNET)
Graham Heyes is the head of the Scientific Computing Department at Jefferson Lab. He was also the lead of the laboratory’s Data Acquisition Support Group. His current research interest is streaming data acquisition and analysis. This talk will explore what that is, and computing models, both hardware and software, that are appropriate for streaming data.
DOE ASCR has been championing the Integrate Research Infrastructure initiative, which is to enable highly coordinated, collaborative research and integrating capabilities across DOE’s
|15:00 - 15:30 ('30)|
Meeting the requirements
The research and education (R&E) networks will share how they are working together to deliver intercontinental capacity and adequate connectivity links to support the needs of big science users

|16:00 - 16:40 ('40)|
Mapping big science requirements to what the R&E Networks are doing
This session will include presentations on the requirements of big science users and how these requirements can be mapped to the services and infrastructure provided by research and education (R&E) networks
Host: Edoardo Martelli (CERN)
