Keynote Speakers for The Quilt Fall Member Meeting Announced

The Quilt welcomes two Internet pioneers:
Dr. Steve Crocker and Larry Strickling will share the stage to discuss ‘Governing the Internet’ during 2018 Fall Member Meeting.

The Quilt will be holding its Fall 2018 Member Meeting at the University of Maryland, College Park, on Sept. 25-27. We are very excited to have our community gather at one of the nation’s preeminent public research universities to learn, share, and collectively advance networking for research and education. We also are excited to welcome two keynote speakers for an exclusive “fireside chat” on Governing the Internet that you won’t want to miss.
