About the Meeting:
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. At this year’s closing Plenary Session, “father of the Internet” Vinton Gray Cerf will be honored with the second Paul Evan Peters Award and will deliver the closing address.
A few weeks before each meeting, CNI Executive Director Clifford Lynch provides a “Roadmap” that highlights key issues and events.
