MARnet Campus Best Practice Workshop 2016

"Campus Best Practice (CBP), part of the GÉANT project funded by the European Union, aims to address key challenges for European campus networks. The CBP Team does this by organising working groups and providing an evolving and to-the-point set of best practice documents (BPDs) for the community. Dissemination of results on a European-wide level is a key objective. The working method involves each NREN organising a number of working groups that deal with campus issues in different technical areas. Participants from universities are invited to take part in the working groups, which work to propose recommendations in best-practice documents. The working groups are led by the NREN and technical experts from universities within the country participate in the groups. Current challenges and experiences are shared and common best practices are discussed, iterated and finally agreed upon. " (For more information see:

The MARnet Campus Best Practice Task Group is organizing a dissemination workshop, focused on the delivery of the final results of their involvement in the GEANT GN4 Phase 1 Project CBP Task. The workshop will include presentations of the GN4 Phase 1 Project itself, discussion of current results of the CBP task process and produced documents by the MK task group. A discussion is planned of possible future work and involvement in the GN4 Special Interest Group SCOPE as a continuation of the activities within CBP.

We invite members of NOC and Campus IT Management from all universities in Macedonia, to consider taking part in this workshop. The number of seats at the event is limited, so priority will be given to have at least one representative from each attending institution.
