The Applications, Middleware, and Services Advisory Council (AMSAC) re-elected Amy Philipson (Executive Director, Pacific Northwest Gigapop) to serve as vice-chair for another year. AMSAC has been discussing issues it wants to pursue and strategic priorities proposed by Internet2 leadership, and will be providing their feedback on several areas that would fall under the AMSAC umbrella, especially those included in Services above the Net (aka Net+) and Unified Communications. The InCommon Federation remains an area of particular interest, especially support for core software, such as Shibboleth. AMSAC also received an update on Internet2 Middleware Initiative (I2MI) activities and progress, including the COmanage collaboration management platform. AMSAC has formed two subcommittees to focus more actively on Net+ services and unified communications.
