Call for Track Session Proposals
This October, the advanced networking community will gather for the 22nd time since Internet2 was launched, to share the many exciting developments in advanced technologies for research and education worldwide. Last fall we celebrated the 10th anniversary of our advanced networking community by holding our meeting in Chicago, where Internet2 was started in 1996. For 2007, we move our fall meeting to California, giving us the opportunity to showcase some of the advanced networking initiatives of our west coast partners. Hosted by University of California, San Diego—Internet2’s fall meeting will enable our member community to gather in person and to share progress and plans, as well as showcase ground-breaking applications and collaborations.

The Member Meeting Program Committee is now accepting proposals for concurrent track sessions at the Fall 2007 Internet2 Member Meeting, which will be held at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center San Diego, CA in San Diego, California, October 8-11.

Full explanations and examples of related topics, as well as the submission form, are provided in the Call for Proposals web page.

Submission deadline: July 31, 2007
Notification by August 15, 2007


Call for Posters
Poster sessions are an intentionally low-tech forum for the exchange of information and ideas about collaborations, projects and works-in-progress. The posters convey stories through the use of graphs, diagrams, pictures, data, and narrative text displayed on 2 foam core poster boards (each approx. 30" x 40"). The posters are on display near the meeting registration area continuously throughout the 3-day meeting; participants informally discuss their presentations with meeting attendees during the staffed hours for poster sessions. In addition, poster presenters are invited to display their posters in the hotel ballroom during the Monday evening Welcome Reception.

All categories of Internet2 membership—University, Corporate, Affiliate, R&E Network members and International MOU partners—are welcome to submit proposals for poster sessions. Each poster submission must contain:

Institution or organization name
Brief abstract
Contact name and email address
Space is limited; posters will be considered on the basis of the following criteria:

Degree of anticipated interaction and information sharing with meeting attendees; relevance of the discussion to advancing their work
Impact of advanced networking and advanced applications, with an emphasis on things that are not possible or reasonable to do with the commodity Internet
Demonstration of the value of Internet2 to its members and how advanced networking technologies further the mission of research, teaching and learning
Submission deadline is July 31, 2007

Please review all details and submit the online form.
