The NLIT Summit is sponsored by the NLIT Society, a professional society founded
to facilitate the exchange of best practices and ideas between IT professionals
within the DOE complex, strengthen the IT infrastructure, and reduce costs within
the DOE laboratory system. The Summit facilitates sharing information regarding
all aspects of IT operations, technology, policies, and practices in support of
research conducted at the Laboratories. It is open to all personnel in the IT field
working at Laboratories and Plants affiliated with government funded activities,
as well as Federal government employees in the IT field that work at agencies associated
with the participating Laboratories.
The Summit consists of presentations, Birds-of-a-Feather collaboration sessions,
panel discussions, tutorials, and technology demonstrations on a variety of topics
of current interest to the IT community within DOE. There is an emphasis on providing
opportunities for active participation and networking between attendees. Best practices,
strategies, methodologies, implementations, lessons learned, innovative solutions,
and emerging topics within the DOE community are shared during the Summit’s many
sessions and events.
