The semi-annual Industrial Advisory Board meeting of the NSF Net-Centric Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (NCSS I/UCRC) was held at the Gateway Center on the UNT campus in Denton, Texas on October 14, 2015. The meeting was very successful with more than 50 attendees, to include current IAB members, potential industrial members, students, faculty and a National Science Foundation (NSF) evaluator. There were thirteen formal presentations, with several poster presentations included in the program.  In addition, the meeting used video conferencing for the first time, which allowed participation by students and industry members from remote locations.  Additional photos from the event can be found at the UNT Computer Science and Engineering Facebook page.
