To further broaden the reach of SC Global, Internet2 Commons will host both 
a Windows Media broadcast and a high-quality VBrick stream. This creates 
additional options for people around the world who are interested in 
participating in this event, but either do not have an Access Grid node 
available to them, or missed the deadlines for participating as a Satellite 

The SC Global program includes such highlights as:

* "Towards a Planetary Collaboratory," keynote address by Larry Smarr,
  director of the California Institute for Telecommunications and
  Information Technology
* Continental Challenge: The first-ever demonstration of simultaneous
  Access Grid connections from all six inhabited continents
* Stereographics and Virtual Reality over the Access Grid * Advancing 
Technology in Native American Communities * LEAD: Linked Environments for 
Atmospheric Discovery * The ARCEL Network, a Global Faculty in Art & Science

Instructions for accessing these streams will be available at:


Please forward this announcement along to your friends and colleagues
who may be interested in SC Global. The complete SC Global schedule
(with all times listed in US Eastern Standard Time) is at:
