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.
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"!
New opportunities through PRACE
A consortium of Austrian universities, represented by the ACONET Association, joined the international "Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe" (PRACE) in July 2018. This opens new opportunities in the field of supercomputing for researchers and students in Austria.
