The topics described below are an indication of the scope of the conference, but are not meant to be restrictive.

*Building the Internet of People*
From the start of the Internet, well over 30 years ago, NRENs have been in the business of building network infrastructure, not only to connect campuses to each other and to the rest of the internet, but also to connect people belonging to many different communities worldwide. Not only do NRENs provide the basic network infrastructure on which research and education, big science and big data are built, they also address the requirements of ever-increasing and diverse communities of end users in areas as diverse as trust, security, identity, and a wide range of tools for collaboration.

With the TNC16 Call for Proposals we invite you to explore the challenges that the research and education networking community faces while continuing to build the internet of people. Submissions are sought for a single presentation or a full session that attempt to answer, but are not limited to answering questions such as:

* What is needed to further satisfy the changing research and
education user needs?
* How can NRENs best cope with the changing landscape of funding and
security requirements?
* What roles in the area of cloud services are, and are not,
suitable for an NREN?
* How can developed and developing NRENs more closely collaborate
with each other, on a regional, European and global scale?
* Which advances in technology are hot, and relevant for the NRENs,
in 2016 and beyond?
