Climate change is the defining crisis of our time and it is happening even more quickly than we feared. But we are far from powerless in the face of this global threat. As Secretary-General António Guterres pointed out in September 2019, “the climate emergency is a race we are losing, but it is a race we can win”. No corner of the globe is immune from the devastating consequences of climate change. Rising temperatures are fuelling environmental degradation, natural disasters, weather extremes, food and water insecurity, economic disruption, conflict, and terrorism. Sea levels are rising, the Arctic is melting, coral reefs are dying, oceans are acidifying, and forests are burning. It is clear that business as usual is not good enough. As the infinite cost of climate crisis reaches irreversible highs, now is the time for bold collective actions. 

At the same time, information and communication technologies (ICTs) are being rapidly deployed around the world. The ICTs can reduce energy use, cut greenhouse gas emissions and build resilience to combat the climate crisis. According to a recent report, SMARTer 2030: ICT Solutions for 21st Century Challenges, ICT can slash global greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2030, thus holding them at 2015 levels, while generating over USD 11 trillion in economic benefits and connecting an additional 2.5 billion people to the knowledge economy by 2030.  

This workshop aims to bring together leading researchers in ICT for combating climate crisis with government and industry representatives, including decision-makers with an interest in using ICT to address the climate crisis, researchers focusing on ICT solutions on climate crisis and developers of sustainable ICT systems or applications for combating climate crisis.

Workshop - Juniper Networks

DevOps enabling modern data network design

In addressing customer data networking requirements there are often different deployment options each with their own benefits and in some cases challenges; for example, do they move to or leverage ‘the cloud’, build it themselves or purchase off the shelf solutions – most likely it is a hybrid blend of all the above. The use of automation toolsets and open standard protocols, amongst many others, are important components to a successful solution. This workshop explores examples where networking meet CI/CD and Infrastructure as Code, and how these principles are being used to address modern networking requirements. In doing so, delivering a timely, scalable, and reliable service.
