First Implementors Workshop
16 June 2004, 8:00am - 4:00pm
University of Pennsylvania
Philadelphia, PA


The Internet2 project seeks to promote the convergence of
voice and email identities, grow SIP-reachability within Internet2,
and build a community of Internet2 schools that are developing and
deploying campus SIP services.

In one year, the project has provided SIP reachability to nearly
100,000 users at four universities, attracted corporate sponsorship,
and published a "cookbook" to lower the implementation hurdle for
others. There is significant interest in among Internet2
universities and corporate members and a number of new implementations

The goals for this one-day workshop are to:

* Build a knowledge base for those that will follow in deploying
* Investigate areas that the community should pursue,
individually or as a group, in order to leverage SIP as a core
technology for new campus communications services and
collaboration applications
* Expand the leadership group for
* Chart a course for scaling up campus and inter-campus SIP
service deployment.

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is primarily for campus data and telecommunications
technologists who have implemented the initial architecture or
who are in the course of implementing it. Internet2 corporate members
partnering with campuses on implementations are also
welcome. Attendance may be limited by available space and to keep the
workshop interactive.


Registration is via SIP voice. Please send email to
providing a SIP URI and times when you can be
reached. One of the workshop organizers will call you to confirm your
registration. Note that this registration process does not require

send us your FWD URI (e.g.
