Opportunities for university researchers and students during IETF 115
1 Nov 2022
The upcoming IETF 115 meeting in London on 5-11 November 2022 is a unique opportunity for networking researchers to learn how RFCs are written, to engage with the Internet standards community to begin to develop research impact, and to meet more than 1,000 leading technologists from around the world currently working in industry, academia, and other organizations.
With more than 100 working sessions, a number of which may be of particular interest to networking researchers and students, and various informal networking opportunities, the IETF 115 meeting program includes:
- A hands-on weekend IETF Hackathon where protocol experts, developers, and network operators discuss, collaborate to develop utilities, ideas, sample code, and solutions that show practical implementations of IETF RFCs;
- Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) meetings focused on research topics such as computation in the network, congestion control, network measurement, privacy, and human rights, including presentations by Applied Networking Research Prize award winners; and
- A 2-part Technology Deep Dive on the new QUIC transport protocol, already used by a range of Internet services.
A number of sessions are set to cover discussions and new proposals accessible to a broad range of Internet technologists, whether they are new to the IETF or long-time participants:
The IETF offers a special student registration rate of US$150 for an entire week of in-person and online participation, with 1-day participation options also available. You can still register today!
