Welcome to ACOnet!
ACOnet is the Austrian National Research and Education Network (NREN) for science, research, education, and culture. It is operated by the Vienna University Computer Center, in co-operation with other universities in Austria.
ACOnet provides a nation-wide fibre optic backbone with high-performance access to international academic networks via GÉANT, as well as to the Internet. Furthermore, ACOnet offers its members various target-group-specific services to support research projects and communities.
ACOnet and COVID-19
The complete ACOnet team is working from the home office since March 16, 2020. Our availability has not changed, however. You can reach us Monday to Friday, 9:00 to 17:00, CEST; preferably by e-mail but also by phone (see contact information). In the case of an emergency you may also call us outside our office hours and leave a message. If necessary, we will call back swiftly.
net:art coordination center reloaded
Since 2013, ACOnet has been committed in the field of net:art - multi-site performances in real time via high-speed networks and specific low latency technologies. In order to promote the exchange of experience and knowledge within the community, ACOnet has also launched the net:art coordination center some time ago. Thanks to the friendly support of Kapsch, this initiative can now be presented on a new, comprehensive website.
We invite you to explore the website www.netart.cc: Take a look at the documentation of our past productions, enjoy the videos and photo galleries and follow the progress of our ambitious new project "aaron's law"!
