Big Data, Big Network: US/Mexico Collaboration

The Big Data, Big Network workshop was held October 10-11, 2013, at the Centro de Investigación Científica y Educación Superior de Ensenada (Ensenada Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education, CICESE). The purpose of the workshop was to enhance cross-border science and engineering research and education applications enabled by the AmLight West 10G connection operated by CENIC in collaboration with Mexico’s Corporación Universitaria para el Desarrollo de Internet (University Corporation for Internet Development, CUDI).

During the workshop, investigators from the US and Mexico showcased and discussed applications and science drivers that will benefit from the use of the 10G connection. Areas of focus included but were not limited to science gateways, oceanography, seismography, astronomy, nano-materials sciences, digital media, scientific instruments, and supercomputing centers.

A second follow-up workshop was held in February 2014 at the Qualcomm Institute, the UC San Diego branch of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2).
