African Women Scientific Academic  Network
Important paradigm shift
(1) ASN rejects the use of the term " BRAIN DRAIN”; instead it will use   "BRAIN MISMANAGEMENT"
(2) ASN believes that there is no such thing as "AFRICAN DIASPORA". AFRICA IS WHERE AFRICANS ARE.   Therefore Africans will contribute to the development of their continent at any time from any where

What is PingER ?

PingER (Ping End-to-end Reporting) is the name given to the Internet End-to-end Performance Measurement (IEPM) project to monitor end-to-end performance of Internet links. It is led by SLAC and development includes NUST/NIIT, FNAL, GATech and ICTP/Trieste. The project now involves hundreds of sites in over 120 countries, and we are actively seeking new sites to monitor and monitoring sites for this project.
