Spring 2006 Internet2 Member Meeting
More than 700 individuals from the broad Internet2 community gathered at the Spring 2006 Internet2 Member Meeting from April 24-26 in Arlington, VA. Attendees participated in both the formal program and informal interactions around topics like middleware, network security, artistic collaborations, content and data sharing, collaboration technologies, international networking, K20 networking, and many others. This meeting highlighted why making connections has remained a core benefit of participation in the Internet2 community. Even as our community develops technologies that aid collaboration at a distance, the Birds-of-a-Feather sessions, hallway conversations and the many serendipitous encounters that took place in Arlington underscore the value of bringing people together in one place.
Internet2 meeting planners would especially like to thank the individuals of the program committee as well as the corporate and university member organizations that provided significant support for the meeting. The program committee put together one of the strongest group of sessions we have ever had. Without the support of our member sponsors such as Juniper Networks, Ciena, HP, Meriton Networks, RADVISION, VBrick Systems, VSNL International, Georgetown University, and the Mid-Atlantic Crossroads, we would not have enjoyed the high-quality networking infrastructure critical to keeping us connected at the meeting or the sensational reception events that spurred new personal connections and collaboration opportunities.
