2016 Technology Exchange
Shaping the Future, One Discussion at a Time
The 2016 Technology Exchange—presented by Internet2 and co-hosted by Florida International University, The University of Florida, and Florida LambdaRail from September 25–28 in Miami—provided an opportunity for just that and more. The annual event was designed to cross-pollinate ideas both within and among the four major technical communities convened.
- Thank you to all the innovators from around the globe who connected in Miami and helped shape the future of research and education!
Pioneers in a variety of R&E networking-related fields shared expertise, brainstormed, and forged new connections, also participating in tutorials, working meetings, and full-group Exchange sessions. Technical representatives included:
> Network engineers, administrators, and other IT professionals convened a mini-conference akin to past Joint Techs;
> Trust and identity architects, developers, and implementers coordinated both ACAMP “unconference” discussions and formal presentations;
> Information security professionals combined formal presentations with small group discussions on emerging information security issues and working meetings; and
> Researchers highlighted advances in network research, discussing applications of advanced network technologies in basic science research, informing HPC and networking attendees about the challenges faced in particular domain sciences, and exploring possible collaborations.
Exchange sessions brought these experts together to focus on a single issue or topic, enhancing the dialog and sparking new ideas and conversations that shaped the future—one discussion at a time!
Who Attended: The Internet2 Technology Exchange convenes U.S. and global technology leaders and visionaries including pioneers, technologists, architects, scientists, operators and students in the fields of networking, security, trust and identity, virtualization, cloud services, high-performance computing, and storage to share expertise in a forum designed to facilitate the cross-pollination of technical ideas and information.
All 2016 Technology Exchange participants are expected to follow the Internet2 Events Code of Conduct.
