2024 Internet2 Community Exchange Call for Proposals
Internet2 has the privilege to convene the national and global Research and Education (R&E) community to build meaningful and lasting relationships, exchange ideas, leverage shared experiences, and empower teams and individuals during the 2024 Internet2 Community Exchange. Collectively, this community drives new innovations, technologies, and solutions to further collaborations and advance research, scholarship, and education.
The 2024 Internet2 Community Exchange showcases the collaborative spirit by which our community transforms the way research and scholarship are conceived and conducted. Whether building new relationships or nurturing existing ones, attendees at this year’s conference can expect to participate in knowledge-sharing discussions with peers who bring a wealth of depth and diversity to their perspectives and expertise. Together, we will explore shared challenges and solutions, common pitfalls, and best practices among community professionals.
