Secret Sessions at 2015 Global Summit

Tags: 2015 Global Summit, Community

The Global Summit, like any good event, has something hidden up its proverbial sleeve for the upcoming 2015 conference. In an effort to continue leading the way, Internet2 is giving you, the attendee, even more to look forward to by adding an additional track, the Community Showcase, to an already action-packed lineup.

The Internet2 Community Showcase presentations are different from any other session you will attend. This track features leaders from the community in an informal "open-air" venue, and gives you the opportunity to ask questions and interact with presenters on an up-close and personal level.

This spring's showcase lineup features 15 presentations and demos including: IBM Corporation; Brocade; Cisco, Oracle; ADVA Encryption; Internet2 with Wisegate; Schoology; Fortinet; BTI; Texas A&M with Mitel; University of Maryland with Blackboard; Aspera; NoviFlow; Splunk; and ESnet with Corsa Technology, with topics focused on one or more of the main 2015 Global Summit program tracks.

Other Happenings in the Showcase:

Need a break? In between sessions, the Community Showcase will have caffeine and social media! Coffee and the Internet2 digital tweet wall will be on display. Stop by and see what you and your colleagues are saying about the Global Summit (Follow us @Internet2 and use hashtag #I2summit15 to join the conversation).

The highly anticipated 20th Anniversary of Internet2 is next year (2016) and we want to document what you, our members, have experienced as part of the Internet2 community throughout the years. There will be a videographer available at the Showcase to capture your thoughts; come by anytime to partake in this exciting success story by sharing your perspective. We want to hear from you!

The Community Showcase is located right where the action is—on the Ballroom level, past the registration desk, in the Congressional Hall Foyer. Spread the word and plan on joining Internet2 at the Community Showcase, because this is one secret we don’t want you to keep.
