Plenary Panel: The Future of the Internet Layer  
As the Internet continues to grow, there are increasing stresses and strains on some of its foundations, such as the original numeric addressing space and the underlying assumption of transparent communications. The expected arrival of millions of wireless devices, and expansion to new, very populous regions of the world, will maintain or increase these stresses for several decades to come. The Internet technical community has been aware of this issue for at least seven years and has carried out various studies and new developments including Classless Interdomain Routing, Network Address Translation and IPv6. The panel will discuss all this and more, and attempt to discern where we are headed next. Brian Carpenter
