PL ---- PLENARY 2: THE NEXT GENERATION INTERNET

Description: This talk will address such questions as: What are Next Generation Internet and Internet2? Who is taking the lead in these initiatives? Will they build new or private networks to replace the current Internet? How will they be different from the current Internet? What new capabilities can we expect to be available for education? How might these capabilities affect education? What about international participation?

The Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative is a government-based proposal to develop the foundation technology for future advanced networks running 1000 times faster than the current Internet, and making early use of that technology in important national applications running on very advanced testbeds. It includes the U.S. Departments of Energy, Defense, Commerce, Education, Interior, and Health and Human Services; the National Science Foundation, and NASA. It aims at much faster, much smarter, and much more versatile networks than the current Internet, supporting a much richer set of applications than are practical today. For more information see www.ngi.gov.

The Internet2 initiative is a closely related university-based initiative aimed at creating a faster network infrastructure for the university community, and developing advanced network technologies and research and education applications that take advantage of the infrastructure. For more information see www.internet2.org.

Both initiatives are planning together and expect to share network circuits, interconnections, and research.

Dr. David Nelson USA
(U.S. Department of Energy)

Dr. Nelson chaired the government committee that founded the U.S. High Performance Computing and Communications initiative. He currently co-chairs the government committee that is developing the President's Next Generation Internet (NGI) initiative. Dr. Nelson is director of the Office of Computational and Technology Research, with responsibilities for research in computing, networking, mathematics, and industrial technology; high-end computational and networking services; and Educational programs in the computational sciences reaching K-12, undergraduate and graduate levels.

PL ---- PLENARY 3: BEYOND THE BOUNDARY -- THE NEXT TWENTY YEARS

Description: What happens after the World Wide Web matures and much of the world is wired ("Webtone" replaces "dial tone")? How will technology affect education, business, and our lives? If we push beyond the current boundary, and imagine the next twenty years, how different will the world be?

The influence of technology on our lives is undergoing the most radical change since the mid-eighteen hundreds. These changes are causing a major upheaval in the direction and structure of information and the demands on people's lives. One of the ways we can cope with the future is to put it in perspective.
