SurfNet was a Canadian research network from 2010 to 2015 that supported over 400 students and resulted in more than 700 publications and presentations. Its goal was to improve the development, performance, and usability of software applications for surface computing environments including multi-touch screens, tabletops, and wall-sized displays.
