Maxine Brown & EVL : I-WAY, 1995
I-WAY (Information Wide Area Year) was a year-long effort that culminated in major demonstrations at the IEEE/ACM Supercomputing (SC) 1995 conference in San Diego. I-WAY interconnected a dozen advanced networking testbeds, 17 supercomputer centers, 5 virtual-reality research sites, and over 60 applications groups to create an extremely diverse wide-area environment in which to explore advanced applications, providing a glimpse of the future of advanced scientific and engineering computing. Principal organizers were Rick Stevens (Argonne National Laboratory), Larry Smarr (NCSA/UIUC), and Tom DeFanti and Maxine Brown (University of Illinois Chicago).
