2016 marks the 20th anniversary of Internet2's founding and this year's Global Summit showcased the community’s rich history and bright future. Thanks for celebrating with us and helping to transform the next 20 years of research and education.
Building on the success of the 2014 event, the 2015 Internet2 Global Summit theme was “Community: Leading the way.” The 2015 summit included a particular focus on the advancement of research capabilities through collaborative innovations in infrastructure and applications.
Video highlights, netcast sessions and speaker presentations are posted!
“Welcome to the New Era!” That was the theme for the 2014 Internet2 Global Summit. We are entering a new era of innovation, community and transformation—in which the R&E community is a key driver.
The Internet2 Global Summit is a leading forum to support and drive the advancement of research and education, spur next-generation innovation and accelerate global discovery. The Summit convenes CIOs and other leaders from institutions around the world in an environment of open engagement, free exchange, partnership and collaboration.
Together, we gauge progress toward our collective goals, explore critical issues within the broad R&E landscape, and determine community priorities. When we involve thought leaders, decision-makers, technologists, and end users in the same conversation, we do amazing things. We hope you will join us for this exciting annual event.
The place: Chicago, Illinois. The dates: May 15–18, 2016. The event: the 2016 Internet2 Global Summit. And it’s a very special one, indeed. Why? Turns out that a fledgling Internet2 community had its beginnings at another Chicago-based meeting—oh, around 20 years ago...
