1 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 1 Bienvenue au CERN Recherche Enseignement Technologie Collaboration International Workshop on African Research & Education Networking September ITU, UNU and CERN

2 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 2 Répartition des utilisateurs CERN par instituts

3 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 3 CERN: 20 Member States; 2400 staff+500 fellows, paid associates; collaborates with 250 institutes in MS: 4500 scientists; 210 institutes in NMS: 2000 scientists; annual turnover: > 1000 people 4231 MS NMS CERN collaborates with the Universities of the world, virtual neighbourhood through ICT

4 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 4 Notre Vue de lUnivers LHCLHC

5 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 5 Les Accélérateurs du CERN

6 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 6 CERNs accelerators

7 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 7 Le Problème LHC: 10 9 collisions/sec 1/10 12 pouvoir de sélection

8 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 8 CERNs collaborative experiments made by the scientists of the world CERN contribution ~20%

9 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 9 But: 1 Petabyte/s inflow of Information CERNs collaborative experiments made by the scientists of the world CERN contribution ~20% Concorde (15 Km) Balloon (30 Km) CD stack with 1 year LHC data! (~ 20 Km) Mt. Blanc (4.8 Km)

10 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 10 CPU servers Disk servers Tape silos and servers Computing at CERN: cheap commodity High Throughput Computing mass storage application servers WAN data cache

11 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN Universities 4 National Labs 2800 CPUs Grid3 150 Grid sites ~12,000 CPUs ~10 PetaBytes 150 Grid sites ~12,000 CPUs ~10 PetaBytes 30 sites 3200 cpus LCG Global virtual Computing Centre today

12 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 12 Competent People Tim Berners Lee Learning by doing real state of the art science and academic training Almost40% of the Nobel Prices in Physics of the past 50 years

13 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 13 (http://cern.ch/rsis )http://cern.ch/rsis Result: Education, Training and Knowledge are Keys to Development ICT are the means of storage and access, make us virtual neighbours and enable close collaborations of distant partners

14 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 14 Universal availability of a comprehensive source of human knowledge and cultural heritage from the academia of the world Towards a Web of Culture and Science Open Access to Results of publicly funded Science gains global Momentum Knowledge is a Common Good

15 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 15 Consideranda Abdus Salam, Nobel Price Physics, Pakistan : in the final analysis, creation, mastery and utilization of modern science and technology is basically what distinguishes the South from the North. On science and technology depend the standards of living of a nation. Calestous Juma, Millennium project Task Force Science, Technology :It is inconceivable that the eight Millennium Development Goals can be achieved by 2015 without a focused science, technology and innovation policy

16 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 16 Objectives To enable African Universities to become full partners of science and education in the world and to form collaborations of their own with the objectives and experience of the countries of Africa and, more generally, the countries of the South, with the participation, help and engagement of the developed worlds universities

17 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 17 Technical Objectives To formulate the concrete and practical steps to generate National Research and Education Networks with land-based (fibre optics) technology in your countries To connect them regionally and globally. This needs to include a detailed description of how the efforts are to be shared in your countries, with our neighbours, all over Africa and with your global partners.

18 AFRICA-REN - Hans F Hoffmann/CERN 18 Au CERN…et autour le Monde les Scientifiques en Réseaux nous tous cherchons des réponses aux questions sur lUnivers…. nous repoussons les frontières de la technologie nous formons les scientifiques, les innovatrices/innovateurs, expert-e-s, enseignant-e-s et actrices/acteurs créatifs de demain nous rapprochons les nations à travers la science en réseau avec laide des TIC
