BioCoRE Presented Via the Access Grid

In October of 2002, the BioCoRE team used the Access Grid to give a presentation about the current state of BioCoRE that was viewed at various sites around the United States.

By using the Access Grid, Robert Brunner and Kirby Vandivort of the BioCoRE team, physically located in Champaign, Illinois, gave a presentation that was simultaneously broadcast to approximately 40 viewers at Boston University, Purdue, Utah State, Ohio State Supercomputing center, New Mexico Health Sciences and Dartmouth. Video and audio, as well as the slide presentation itself, was transmitted and after the presentation each of these sites had the opportunity to ask questions in a true virtual conference presention.
