Session Abstract

Building on the success of last year’s internationally-focused special interest group meetings, this working group session will enable participants to learn about the many recent updates and developments in advanced networking in Africa and discuss the ongoing or upcoming partnerships between US and African institutions. After a few use cases and presentations from leaders of ongoing initiatives, participants will be invited to openly share and discuss the opportunities and challenges they face. This session will be of great interest to a large number of Internet2 members with active collaborations with African institutions, international participants, and all those interested in global networking developments.
