Call for Participation

The Research and Higher Education community has a long-standing history of pioneering disruptive and breakthrough technologies in pursuit of advancing scholarship, scientific research, and new discoveries. The community also is known for engaging in mutual-interest collaboration – across a diverse set of communities to solve common challenges for the benefit of all. Working together, the community continues to transform and elevate the development of revolutionary innovations in network and infrastructure technologies – from building the world’s fastest network, to expanding to meet global needs, to growing an extensive portfolio of end to end network services, cloud services, and trust and identity capabilities – for the benefit of researchers and educators across the world. The community and Internet2 are now at a key inflection point – one that presents an incredible opportunity to move forward, reshape our collective thinking and once again have the R&E community take a leadership role in the broader technology landscape. Together, we can continue to accelerate discovery and advance national and global research and education.

Call for Session Proposals

The Call for Session Proposals is now closed. Session proposals will be reviewed and selected by a Program Committee comprised of distinguished representatives from the R&E community. For your planning purposes, track sessions will be scheduled throughout the day on Monday May 7th, Tuesday May 8th and Wednesday May 9th. Notifications regarding accepted proposals will be communicated in mid-December 2017. If you have any questions about the submission process please contact meetings@internet2.edu.

Call for Working Meetings

The Call for Working Meetings is closed!

One of the many benefits of attending the 2018 Internet2 Global Summit is the opportunity to hold and attend working meetings—working group meetings, advisory groups, birds-of-a-feather groups (BoFs), special interest groups (SIGs), etc.—in conjunction with other meeting activities.

Meetings relevant to the overall programmatic goals for the event and open to all attendees will be given a level of preference. Internet2-sanctioned working groups and/or advisory groups will also be given preference in scheduling. All other proposals will be accepted based on space availability and we will attempt to accommodate all requests on a first-come, first-served basis. Your flexibility with day/time selections and meeting duration will assist us in accommodating your request.

We expect this gathering to host nearly 1000 information technology decision-makers and high-level influencers from the nation’s top universities, government and scientific research organizations. As a sponsor, your organization automatically earns a benefit package containing special privileges not available by any other means. No other vehicle can single out your organization so effectively before this important audience. Sponsorships are limited in number and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
