Our 2015 Fall Member Meeting is coming up at the end of the month, and we have an extraordinary line-up of keynote speakers and guests scheduled to participate.
At the invitation of Quilt member LEARN (Lonestar Education and Research Network), The Quilt will be holding its Fall Member Meeting on Sept. 28 through Oct. 1 at the JW Marriott in downtown Austin, Texas. This year’s Fall Member Meeting also coincides with the National Science Foundation Campus Cyberinfrastructure PI Workshop and the ESnet Site Coordinators Committee (ESCC).
This will be one Texas-sized meeting with the best networking minds in the country gathered all in one place for some exciting discussions on how R&E networks are uniquely positioned to meet today’s infrastructure challenges.
Over the next couple of weeks we will preview several items on the agenda and spotlight some of our special guests and speakers participating at this year’s meeting. One example is the discussion on cyberinfrastructure in Texas.
LEARN President and CEO Mike Phillips and current chairman of The Quilt will be hosting an engaging panel on Campus Cyberinfrastructure in Texas. Additional panel participants include Deniz Gurkan, of the University of Houston, and Kaushik De, of Stephen F. Austin State University.
The NSF Campus Cyberinfrastructure program provides new capabilities that advance current and future research efforts. A number of awards were made under this program to Texas institutions and this panel will showcase the impact of campus infrastructure investments for two universities and with LEARN providing a statewide view of the impact of the program across the region.
Thanks again to LEARN for hosting this year’s meeting. If you have not registered, online registration is still available.
You can follow the conversation now and throughout the meeting using #FMM15 or @TweettheQuilt.
We look forward to seeing you Austin!
