Spring 2008 Internet2 Member Meeting

April 21-23, 2008

Crystal Gateway Marriott
1700 Jefferson Davis Highway
Arlington, Virginia 22202

Reinvent Internet2Through community involvement, Internet2 members are using advanced technologies to foster collaboration among people and enable interactive access to information and resources. Twice a year, the Internet2 community gathers in person to share knowledge and expertise, and initiate new collaborations. In spring 2008 we returned to Arlington, VA— giving the community an opportunity to share the latest information on timely issues and rapidly evolving areas of interest. The 661 attendees, representing all Internet2 membership categories, took advantage of our in-person gathering to accomplish an impressive amount during the Working Group, Special Interest Group, and Birds of a Feather meetings. In addition, we welcomed 118 first-time registrants to our member meeting. Another highlight involved participation in several activities surrounding our community-led Strategic Planning Process, and focus groups attracted over 40 attendees who provided input and comments to help construct the Strategic Plan for Internet2.

For your information, both of the meeting general sessions and many of the track sessions are available for viewing on the meeting netcast archive. In addition, you'll find archived presentation materials through the online program. Refer to our photo gallery for some glimpses of the member meeting in action.
