2019 Fall Member Meeting heads to Minnesota

Our 2019 Fall Member Meeting is next week, and we have a great program lined up for Quilt members, affiliates and guests at The Downtown Renaissance Hotel – The Depot on Sept. 24-26 in Minneapolis.

At the invitation of our Quilt member, Northern Lights GigaPoP, The Quilt is excited to have our community gather in the Twin Cities to learn, share, and collectively advance networking for research and education.

Building on the success of several years of collocating events, this year’s Fall Member Meeting also coincides with the National Science Foundation Campus Cyberinfrastructure and Cybersecurity Innovation for Cyberinfrastructure PI Workshop and the Third National Research Platform (NRP) Workshop.

Some of the best networking minds in the country will be gathered all in one place for some exciting discussions on how R&E networks are uniquely positioned to meet today’s infrastructure challenges to support researchers in their scientific discoveries.

The meeting agenda is available here. Highlights include a joint networking reception, plenaries on bridging the rural divide, telling community stories with broadband data, and refraction networking with additional highlights include an overview of novel infrastructure services to support campus eSports, a CyberRISK (Regional Information Security Knowledge-sharing) Workshop, updates on the Internet2 Community Anchors Program, securing research at scale, spectrum experiments from the UETN Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), Quilt Member Lightning Talks, and much more.

We have a dynamic program in store for you! We are looking forward to the opportunity to bring all these great groups together all in one place, and thanks again to Quilt member Northern Lights GigaPoP for the invitation.
