OptIPuter Open House Presentations Available in Streaming Video

San Diego, CA, January 27, 2007 -- The Calit2-led OptIPuter project held its annual All Hands Meeting (AHM) last week, providing a status report in Year Five of the project (which ends next September). The closed-door sessions on Jan. 22 were for funded and affiliate partners, but for the first time, OptIPuter organizers opened up some of the sessions on Jan. 23 for an "open house," to anyone interested in learning more about the four-year-old project that is developing and deploying a powerful, distributed cyberinfrastructure to support data-intensive scientific research and collaboration.

By the September 30, 2007, end of the NSF OptIPuter grant, investigators will have tested and demonstrated robust use of key OptIPuter implementations, including configurable networks, optimized resource selection, and high-speed transport protocols. A full report on the OptIPuter AHM will be available shortly on the Calit2 and OptIPuter websites.
