Singapore is participating widely in this year's International GRID (iGRID) special event at this summer's INET 2000 Conference in Yokohama, Japan, July 18-21 -- iGRID is showcasing the latest in technological innovations and application advancements supporting global community networking. 23 high-speed global network applications will be showcased at INET2000 conference.
This is the second time that Singapore is participating in this mega iGRID showcase. The last was in 1998 in Florida, USA, where Singapore showcased 5 advanced applications. SingAREN is co-ordinating Singapore participation at this event that will showcase 4 advanced applications that have been developed either locally or in collaboration with international collaborators from Germany, United States, Canada, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, CERN, Spain, Korea and Mexico. Among the Asian countries that are participating in iGRID, Singapore has the second highest number (next to Japan) of advanced applications that will be showcased at the event. The other Asian participants include Japan, Korea and Taiwan.
The applications that are part of the rest of the showcase range from distributed interactive Collaborative design to computer graphics to a lecture on human anatomy and streaming digital video. All applications will be streamed to the exhibition floor in Yokohama via the SingAREN-Japan 4 MB high-speed link. The applications are presented by Singapore's institutions of higher learning here namely, National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University and Temasek Polytechnic.
