Calls for Participation

Listed below are links to a variety of calls for participation for the Fall 2012 Internet2 Member Meeting. Please carefully review the information and requirements for each call prior to submitting a proposal or response.

Call for Session Proposals

The theme for the Fall 2012 Internet2 Member Meeting will build upon concepts that were introduced at the spring meeting: “Community. Innovation. Transformation.”

The meeting program will focus on all three aspects of this triad that is further defined as follows:

  • Community:  Understanding and embracing our community’s ability to innovate and transform research, education and economies
  • Innovation: A deeply programmable, bandwidth-abundant innovation platform creating an environment for next-generation service delivery
  • Transformation: Community developed services and applications that transform global research and education

While the four Areas of Interest will remain the same as the spring meeting, the content of the sessions will be expanded to include examples of what we are learning as we move along the innovation platform continuum and demonstrations of the progress we are making in transforming service models. Full explanations and examples of related topics, as well as the submission form, are provided in the Call for Proposals web page.

Submission deadline: June 25, 2012

Selection notification: July 2, 2012

Call for Working Meetings

One of the many benefits of member meetings is the opportunity to hold working meetings (e.g. working groups, BoFs, SIGS, etc.) in conjunction with the other meeting activities. In order to accommodate the requests for these working meetings, we will reserve incremental hotel space at times outside of the program sessions. To aid us in handling and filling your requests for these additional meetings, we are issuing this call with a deadline of June 25, 2012.

Meetings will be accepted based on space availability and we will attempt to accommodate all requests on a first come, first serve basis. Your flexibility with day/time and meeting duration requests will assist us in accommodating your meeting needs. Submit your meeting request.

Please Note: These meetings should be open to all Internet2 Member Meeting attendees. If you need to schedule an invitation-only or closed meeting, Internet2 will reserve a room for you. However, you will be responsible for notifying people about the meeting yourself and you must provide your email address so others can contact you.

Submission deadline: June 25, 2012
