Latin America was central yesterday to the discussion of advanced computing services for science and education. In the first day of the GISELA-CHAIN Conference, being held in Mexico, the Deputy Director of Planning and International Cooperation of CONACYT Mexico warned that the region should "wake up" to the subject of e-Science and move faster to respond institutionally to this new way of generating Knowledge.
The afternoon began with the future of advanced computing services in Latin America. Discussions will continue today. It is expected that at the end of the Conference, a memorandum of understanding between the major academic networks in the region, including RedCLARA, will be signed, to generate an atmosphere of cooperation in this matter.
