New York University (NYU) is proud to be the official host of the 2014 Chinese American Network Symposium (CANS). Next year’s symposium will build on the rich Internet2 US-China Collaboration Initiative, a multi-year, multi-path collaboration program between U.S. and Chinese researchers, scientists, educators, and leaders in higher education. The program will bring them together to discuss key issues regarding network deployment, global cyberinfrastructure, and interoperability in support of research and education in the US and China, with the likelihood of enhancing international collaborations in a broad range of disciplines.
