About the Caribbean Research Education
Networking (CaribREN) Special Interest Group
  • Mission To advance the state of high-performance
    networking for research and education in the
    Caribbean.
  • Membership is open to all institutions and
    individuals with an interest in supporting,
    contributing, or learning more about the mission
    of the CaribREN SIG.
  • Current membership ranges from Caribbean
    interests, US and Latin American research
    education networks, scientists, and educators.

Assessment (CIARA)
  • CIARA was created in 2003 as a State of Florida
    Type II Research Center at FIU. CIARA services
    institutional collaborators in the U.S. and
    internationally as a bridge linking researchers
    and educators with the infrastructure and
    knowledge they need to perform their work.

Caribbean Knowledge and Learning Network (CKLN)
  • Launched by the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and
    the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States
    (OECS) in 2004, the Caribbean Knowledge and
    Learning Network (CKLN) is a multilateral
    project, supported by the OAS, the World Bank,
    the European Union and the Canadian International
    Development Agency (CIDA). 
  • The project is designed to enhance the
    competitiveness of Caribbean countries, using
    information and communication technologies to
    connect the Caribbean to the global pool of
    knowledge, developing human resources and
    facilitating greater regional integration

11
Eastern Caribbean IPv6 Network
  • The St. Maarten Medical Center is currently
    connected on a 4 Mb pipe that is used to query
    medical database.
  • The center is upgrading its connection on fiber
    to provide faster and better quality. The project
    is expected to be completed in the 2nd week of
    October.

Arecibo Observatory, Puerto Rico
  • Arecibo Observatory, which has the world's
    largest single-dish radio telescope, is part of
    the National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center
    (NAIC), a national research center operated by
    Cornell University under a cooperative agreement
    with NSF
  • Arecibo is a sponsored participant in Internet2
    through FIU AMPATH IXP
  • Arecibo participates in SETI_at_home and the e-VLBI
    radio astronomy array coordinated by MIT Haystack
    and Jive (EU- Dwingeloo, Netherlands)

Arecibo Observatory, Puerto RicoEXPReS
  • EXPReS is a three-year project to create a
    distributed astronomical instrument of
    continental and intercontinental dimensions using
    e-VLBI.
  • e-VLBI (European VLBI Network) is an
    interferrometric array of radio telescopes spread
    throughout Europe and beyond, including at
    Arecibo, which conducts unique, high resolution,
    radio astronomical observations of cosmic radio
    sources.
  • It is the most sensitive VLBI array in the world,
    thanks to the collection of extremely large
    telescopes that contribute to the network.
  • EXPReS is made possible through the support of
    the European Commission (DG-INFSO), Sixth
    Framework Programme, Contract 026642

First eVLBI with JIVE September 2004
The first eVLBI test observations took place on
Sept. 10, 2004. The source, 0528134, was
observed at 1.6 GHz using an array consisting of
Arecibo, Cambridge (UK), Torun (Poland) and
Westerbork (Netherlands). The observations re
sulted in the FIRST transatlantic eVLBI image.
Arecibo-Torun was then the LONGEST real-time
interferometer baseline yet created.

University of the Virgin Islands (UVI)
  • EPSCoR Grant (NSF) 4.5 million designed to
    expand and enhance the research capability of
    scientists to compete more successfully for a
    portion of the nation's federal academic research
    and development budget.
  • Master of Marine Environmental Science
  • EPSCoR is investing in research infrastructure at
    UVI, including
  • - new computer system for high performance ocean
    modeling (HYCOM) improving UVIs intranet and
    internet capacity on St. Thomas and St. Croix
  • - developing high speed internet connectivity at
    UVIs field station on St. John and
  • - trials of electronic delivery of rapid
    full-text journal access for researchers.
