Dr. Vinton G. Cerf, VP and chief internet evangelist at Google, will fill in as a highlighted keynote speaker at the 2019 Internet2 Global Summit occasion. The discussion, entitled “Pacification of Cyberspace,” will occur at 3:15 p.m. Thursday, March 7, at the Marriott Marquis Washington DC. Cerf will address how to assuage the relatively lawless environment of the Internet, while saving the utility of its openness to creative innovation and technological revolution.
Broadly known as one of the “Fathers of the Internet,” Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet. He has served in executive positions at MCI, the Corporation for National Research Initiatives and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and on the faculty of Stanford University.
“Dr. Vint Cerf is a visionary leader whose contributions to the architecture of the Internet have helped transform the world as we know it,” said Howard Pfeffer, president and CEO of Internet2. “His perspective on the need to address safety, security, privacy, reliability and utility amongst the technical Internet community is a welcome addition to the Global Summit program and we’re pleased he could join us for the event.”
The 2019 Internet2 Global Summit occasion will assemble research and education technology leaders from March 5-8 at the Marriott Marquis Washington DC hotel. It will include two keynote addresses, presentations from noted subject-matter specialists, and sessions concentrated on trust and identity, advanced networking, information security, and integrated solutions for research, scholarship and creativity.
