Breakout Session 2: Internet2 CLASS Program & NGI Update
Internet2 is partnering with major cloud providers and research universities to develop the Cloud Learning and Skills Sessions (CLASS) program to fill the gaps in training for cloud and research computing. The program accelerates the adoption of best practices in research computing and data in the cloud and provides professional development for research computing and data professionals (those who support researchers).  In this session, Internet2 will present the CLASS program and how you can participate in it.  Additionally, there will be an update on the deployment of the Internet2 Next Generation Infrastructure (NGI) network, including the optical, packet, automation, orchestration, and telemetry projects that comprise an amazingly comprehensive network infrastructure that can support research and education efforts for many years to come.

Breakout Session 5: Learning More about GPN
The Great Plains Network is well known as the Internet2 Connector for its member states.  But GPN goes well beyond that, as a leader in the Research and Education Networking community, as a catalyst for research computing and networking efforts across the entire region and nationally, and as an organization supporting research computing through groups such as the GPN Research Platform, the GPN Carpentry Mentoring Group, GPN CyberInfrastructure Program, the Regional CyberTeam, and others.  Come hear GPN Executive Director James Deaton talk about these various programs, with open dialogue on how you can get engaged in one of these groups.
