Bachelor and master students who are interested in computer networks and communication protocols that power the Internet
Objective of the Seminar
From July 28 - August 2, 2013 the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF http://www.ietf.org) will meet in Berlin. Since more than 25 years the IETF develops and maintains the standard Internet protocols (for instance IP, TCP, HTTP etc.).
The IETF is an open community that welcome the participation of each interested individual. The IETF meeting in Berlin is thus a perfect opportunity for you to experience how to design protocols, discuss proposals, and get in contact with people who built the Internet.
However, to make your (first) participation a success, you should be appropriately prepared. To that effect, we offer an IETF mini seminar (no credits, everything is on voluntary base). The objectives of this seminar include:
- Getting familiar with the IETF functioning;
- Identify topics and working groups that could be of interest for you;
- Getting prepared to participate in a IETF working group.
In addition to the seminar meetings, participants of the IETF mini seminar should read selected technical specs (Internet Drafts, RFCs) as well as join and follow selected IETF mailing lists.
