Instructions for Submitting Papers
INET'96, the 6th Annual Conference of the Internet Society focusing on
worldwide issues of Internet networking will be held 25-28 June 1996 in
Montreal, Canada. This conference brings together those extending the
reach and use of Internet networks. Participants include those developing
and implementing Internet networks, applications, and policies for
worldwide infrastructure development. The development of Internet
networks in an ever wider variety of social, cultural, economic and
linguistic contexts is also a focal point of this conference.
INET'96 will encompass certain horizontal threads reflecting the general
tone of this conference. In particular, the desire to treat the Internet
as a unified, complex, phenomenon meshing highly technical issues with
deeply social, economic, and cultural concerns is stressed in order to
help the whole world better understand the Internet revolution.
Conference Topics. Topics for paper submissions include but are not
limited to the following:
- Internet Applications and Services
The Internet provides a foundation for the delivery of many advanced
services. The technologies to deliver these services include advanced tools
for managing, searching, and accessing distributed information. They also
include techniques for dealing with multimedia, files systems, computing,
collaboration, user interfaces, multiple language support and mobility.
- Transforming Internet Commerce and Reshaping the Market Place
The Internet and its related technologies provide an important platform
for transformation of business and commercial activities. Business
activities continue to evolve on the Internet. New product offerings such
as commerce servers, publishing servers, community servers and electronic
malls have captured the imagination of the public and many business
Internet networks deeply transform the reach of firms, allowing small
companies to have global reach. New forms of competition emerge with
related questions about the nature and security of transactions, the need
for new electronic currencies. New customer relationships emerge with
implications for advertising and distribution and delivery of products and
- Internet Learning and Teaching
The Internet provides unparalleled richness from the standpoint of the
individual learner. Focused attention on organization and presentation of
teaching and learning material in a highly interactive environment
produces new learning and teaching paradigms. Organizations of all kinds
including primary and secondary schools, post-secondary education
institutions, government institutions and commercial enterprises seek to
use the Internet and its related technologies to enhance the learning and
The application of Internet technologies to education accelerates such
developments as "just-in-time learning". Some of these trends deeply
reshape functions and objectives of traditional learning institutions.
Experiments with new teaching applications and the building of global
communities also transform the nature of education.
- Networking Technology Frontiers
The increasing sophistication of network applications and enormous growth in
number of people using the Internet demand new networking solutions.
Advanced technologies and services to expand, rationalize and manage core
network services develop quickly. Networking designs, protocols, registry
processes and services, transport services and security requirements
continue to undergo rapid evolution to meet the growing demand.
- Internet and Social Transformations
The global Internet is affecting how people interact and how society works.
Ideas and opinions flow faster and in new directions, and as a result power
is being distributed in unexpected ways. Until the Internet, the growth of
mass media pointed to a world with an increasingly homogeneous culture.
Now, the Internet holds the promise to enhance cultural and linguistic
diversity on a global scale. New kinds of communities are coming to light.
Borders become porous to ideas, opinions, rumors and facts. Politics and
governments are changing. If the Internet is truly the equivalent of
printing with moveable type, what can we already say about its effect on our
- Growing and Regulating the Internet: Economic and Policy Issues
More countries and the international community recognize Internet
evolution as an important economic and policy issue. Major challenges
continue as global and national communities struggle to understand the
incremental nature of Internet evolution and how to encourage, regulate or
discourage its use and growth. Advancing Internet technologies also cause
redefinition of current economic activities, regulatory and economic
policies, and political issues.
- Expanding and Enhancing Internet Access
Most parts of the world struggle to provide reliable access with reasonable
performance. Many geographic areas also struggle to extend access to more
individuals and institutions. Technical, economic, social and political
barriers and solutions continue to evolve. Projects within geographic
regions, countries and industries illustrate the nature of the challenges
and the dimensions of potential solutions.
- Internet Case Studies
Individuals, organizations and governments use the Internet for a wide range
of activities. These experiences, both successes and failures, form an
important knowledge base of information about the Internet and also help
define frontiers for further exploration and development.
