“What’s Next” for Internet and cloud technologies, cybersecurity, online identity, high-performance computing and scientific research on display in Indianapolis
WASHINGTON, D.C.—October 13, 2014—Over 600 leading technologists will converge at the 2014 Technology Exchange to collaborate, discuss and debate next-generation networking and computing technologies. Featuring a packed agenda of transformational technologists and an exciting announcement of a fundamental advancement for Internet network architectures (also Netcast)—the event is poised to deliver its theme of “Sparking NEXT” from October 26-30 at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis, IN. The new international program is designed to convene cross-functional experts from cybersecurity, network architecture, identity and cloud computing to spark new integrated technologies for the vital and pioneering work of scientists and educators across the globe.
Sponsored by advanced technology consortium Internet2, in collaboration with the Department of Energy’s Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), this year’s event is hosted by Indiana University—a leading Internet2 member and operator of the Internet2 Network Operations Center. The event is the first in line of a revamped series with a rich history. Attendees are leading technologists in the broader research and education (R&E) community—which made significant contributions to the creation of the Internet itself—and have continued gathering as part of Internet2 to further advance Internet technologies since 1998.
Featuring (plenary sessions and many technical sessions also Netcast):
“The program, discussions, technology debates, and collaborations in store for the inaugural Technology Exchange event lays a terrific cornerstone for this new meeting dedicated to pushing boundaries of technologies pioneered by research and education,” said H. David Lambert, president and chief executive officer, Internet2. “As history shows, this community’s work serves as an incubator for technology innovations which make broad impacts.”
