Welcome to the CNI Fall 2004 Task Force Meeting
This year, our Fall meeting will be held at the Hilton Portland and Executive Tower in Portland, Oregon. Registration forms will be sent to Task Force representatives and guests the week of September 1, and the Registration Deadline is October 25. Project Briefing Proposals will be accepted through October 8.
Twice each year, representatives from the member organizations of the Coalition for Networked Information gather for Task Force Meetings. The meetings are designed to explore new technologies, content, and applications; to further collaboration; to analyze technology policy issues; and to catalyze the development and deployment of new projects.
Project Briefings are the heart of every Task Force Meeting. These briefings address state-of-the-art developments and issues of interest to the membership, as outlined in each year’s Program Plan. Architecture and standards, economic challenges, and innovations in teaching and learning are among the topics that consistently engage CNI members’ interests.
Plenary Sessions held at the beginning and end of each meeting include presentations of CNI’s latest initiatives as well as insights from national and international leaders in the networked information community.
A few weeks before each meeting, CNI Executive Director Clifford Lynch provides a “Roadmap” that highlights key issues and events.
