Research networking beyond Europe

In this session we will hear from two countries, the United States and Brazil,
in two combined presentations. Doug Van Houweling, who will soon be retiring as
President and CEO of Internet2, will be looking back at the history of his
organisation and express his expectations about Internet2's future. This will be
completed by Internet2 Chief Technology Officer Randy Frank, who will speak in
particular about the collaboration with Europe. In the second half of the
session, Michael Stanton will give a brief overview of the Brazilian national
research network, followed by a presentation on a new videoconference system
used for teaching in Brazil.
