Session Abstract

Welcome
Doug Van Houweling

"Convergence and Crystallization in Networking for Research and Education"
Dr. Larry R. Faulkner
We in the world of top-level networking for research and education are in a brief period of exceptional opportunity. Forces and resources, institutions and associations, ideas and desires are converging to enable the synthesis of a new, much more potent, networking environment. If we can seize the opportunity to greatest advantage, we can realize and solidify a set of platforms that can support strong technical advances over the next decade or more. Political and institutional leaders have bought the vision. The financial resources are practically assured. All of the principal players are at the table. The question is whether optimal organizational structures will evolve.
