Internet2 is soliciting advanced networking applications demonstrations for the Fall 2010 Internet2 Meeting , which will be held at the Renaissance Waverly Atlanta in Atlanta, GA. Internet2 university members, corporate members, association members, affiliate members, association members, working groups, and international partners are all invited to participate in the demos. We are seeking demonstrations that showcase innovations in Cloud Computing, Collaboration Technologies, and Biological Sciences, but all disciplines are welcome.

We would like to have 10 - 12 demonstrations that are capable of utilizing the 10G circuit we have secured for the Fall Member Meeting. We have 5,896 square feet of space available.

Why Demo?

Over 100 Internet2 member institutions have participated in demonstrations at Internet2-related events. Demos provide several opportunities, including:

  • Demonstrating, to an international audience, the interesting applications we have under development or in use.
  • Engaging the interest and imagination of those who may develop their own applications after seeing the demos.
  • Giving the demonstrators an opportunity to show off their efforts and to seek new partners and sponsors for their efforts.

Internet2 university members, corporate members, affiliate members, association members, and international partners are all invited to participate in the demos. Internet2 would like to feature demos that showcase how advanced networking is enabling the research and education community to find new methods of scientific communication, collaboration, and visualization—often in partnership between U.S. researchers, faculty, students and their overseas counterparts. Applications from all disciplines are welcome. The primary objective is that we showcase network-intensive applications that demonstrate the reality and the potential of Internet2 environments. Demos that illustrate how Internet2 can facilitate technology transfer from the lab to the marketplace are also welcome.

How to Submit Your Demo for Consideration -NOW CLOSED-

If you’re interested in demonstrating, please review the demonstration criteria and complete the demo submission form by Friday, September 10. We may approve the demos as they are submitted, so earlier submissions are preferred.

Internet2 Member Meetings bring the member community together for interactive discussions about new and ongoing work and provide a venue for members to make connections and form new collaborations. Additionally, the side meetings held in conjunction with the Member Meeting provide forums for Working Groups, SIGs and BoFs to meet face-to-face.
