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, Community of Interest Network (COIN) 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.
