The Quilt will be returning to the La Jolla Shores Hotel and La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club in California on Feb. 9-11, 2016 for its Winter Member meeting.
Two hotel choices will be offered – The La Jolla Shores Hotel and The La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club. These properties are adjoining properties and are a short walk between one another. The Main Quilt Member Program will be held in the La Sala room at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club.
Nearly 100 representatives from our Quilt member organizations are planning to attend this winter. And, in addition to some California sunshine, we also have a high-energy agenda planned to warm you up during chilly February days.
The meeting will kick-off on Tuesday, Feb. 9 with various working group meetings and The Quilt In-Person Board Meeting at the La Jolla Shores Hotel. This year, the R&E Networking CEO Roundtable is for participants of R&E Networking Round Table only and will be closed. The meeting will run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Main Quilt Member Program will begin the following day at 8:30 a.m. and run through noon on Thursday. Our Social Hour and Member Reception will be open to guests this year so please be sure to sign up and let us know the total number in your party.
View the current Meeting Schedule. Be sure to keep checking back often for a full agenda in the coming weeks.
Special for this meeting is a tour and introduction to Calit2 hosted by Calit2 and CENIC.
Quilt members and other conference participants will have an opportunity to hear from Calit2 leaders, including Calit2 Founder and Director Larry Smarr, about goals of inventing a collaborative research environment for the digital future as well as tour and experience some of the new environments that support this research. Professor Smarr and CENIC CEO Louis Fox will discuss the groundbreaking potential of the Pacific Research Platform – a new National Science Foundation grant that uses fiber-optic networks to connect researchers at universities throughout the West Coast, enabling them to share “big data” at an unprecedented speed. This discussion will underscore opportunities for Quilt members, and the research institutions that comprise their communities, to participate. The event also will conclude with a reception hosted by CENIC.
Please be sure to register by Jan. 23. Online registration is available and space is limited. To register and be billed by invoice instead of paying by credit card, please contact Jennifer Griffin, Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
