Internet2's 2019 Global Summit is a community forum for our members and partners from around the world to participate in unprecedented collaboration to discuss today’s needs, challenges and solutions across all Research and Education. Registration is open.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Jeannette M. Wing is Avanessians Director of the Data Science Institute and Professor of Computer Science at Columbia University. From 2013 to 2017, she was a Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Research. She is Consulting Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon where she twice served as the Head of the Computer Science Department and had been on the faculty since 1985. From 2007-2010 she was the Assistant Director of the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Directorate at the National Science Foundation. She received her S.B., S.M., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science, all from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

  • Vint Cerf is Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist for Google. He contributes to global policy development and continued spread of the Internet. Widely known as one of the "Fathers of the Internet," Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet. He has served in executive positions at MCI, the Corporation for National Research Initiatives and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and on the faculty of Stanford University.

Over the past two years, the Internet2 community has focused on important advances in networking infrastructure, trust and identity, and integrated cloud services – all supporting a general environment of seamless global collaboration for scholarship. Hardware and software tools continue to blossom with increasing frequency and impact, rapidly expanding digitally-driven opportunities for research, scholarship and creative endeavors. But each tool tends to be "local" – observation, measurement and sensing nodes, computational engines, visualization tools, data storage nodes – and many involve deep technical knowledge to use. So networked data flows and integrated storage, processing and workflow tools that hide the technical complexity and allow scholars to focus on their art or science remain key to the overall utility of the burgeoning big-data environment. 2019 Global Summit will highlight progress and innovation in these key domains.
