July 4th was the first day of the 2016 Brazilian Computer Society Conference (CSBC 2016), which will provide space for exchanges and discussions focused on subject 'Communication and Interdisciplinarity'. The goal is to increase synergy in finding integrated solutions to emerging issues in the computing field in today's society. The meetings will be held until July 7th, in the city of Porto Alegre, south of Brazil. The CSBC also hosts satellite events, three of them being held for the first time and with the support of RNP: the testbed Fibre Workshop, Cloudscape Brazil and Workshop on Cloud Networks (WCN).
The first will be held on July 5th, by RNP, to present the testbed Future Internet Brazilian Environment for Experimentation (Fibre), its research infrastructure and encourage teachers to make use of the system in the classroom. The other two will be held on July 6th and 7th at EUBrasilCloudForum, one of the projects of the 3rd European Union-Brazil Coordinate Call in Information and Communication Technologies (TIC). This call is managed by CTIC/RNP with the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovations and Communications (MCTIC), on the Brazilian side, and the European Commission, in the EU.
