In 2014, the Internet2 community ushered in a new era with our first-ever Global Summit. Our community has a long heritage of sparking innovation, collaboration and transformation for all of research and higher education. With the pressures ever increasing on higher education, together we must keep facing today’s challenges head on. To truly lead the way, we must broaden our horizons, envisioning tomorrow’s challenges and tomorrow’s solutions.
Building on the success of the 2014 event, we are pleased to announce the 2015 Internet2 Global Summit. The theme for this year is “Community: Leading the way.”
The 2015 Internet2 Global Summit will showcase how we—as a community—are continuing to transform the way research and scholarship are conceived and conducted. Through strong academic leadership, perceptive global engagement, and applied innovations in networking and services, the Internet2 community continues its legacy of expanding the research and education (R&E) community’s capabilities to advance research and academic excellence. The 2015 Global Summit will include a particular focus on the advancement of research capabilities through collaborative innovations in infrastructure and applications.
Once again, the 2015 Internet2 Global Summit will feature keynote addresses from top R&E leaders, presentations from noted experts, and sessions focused on partnerships and advanced technologies—all designed to inspire and equip our leaders as they transform the academy today and beyond.
Dr. Freeman Hrabowski will deliver the Presidential Keynote on Monday, April 27. Dr. Hrabowski has served as President of The University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) since 1992. Considered one of the top presidential leaders of this generation, Dr. Hrabowski’s research and publications focus on science and math education, with special emphasis on minority participation and performance.
