Since 1991, the INET conferences have become a common meeting ground for participants interested in the design, implementation, operation and use of the Internet. Global policy and economic issues, ethical concerns, and many technical issues are raised in a variety of contexts. The rapid influx of commercial and individual users on the Internet has influenced the nature of the system and broadened its utility. The importance of the Internet and its technology to all sectors of the global economy is growing as is the social impact of access to the Internet. The goal of this conference is to provide a platform that will bring together those developing and implementing Internet networks, technologies, applications and policies worldwide for infrastructure development.
