>Over the last thirty years, the terrestrial Internet has grown from a
>few computers that were networked in a prototype laboratory environment
>into a vast deployed system that is an indispensable component of the
>present and future global economy. Key to its exponential growth has
>been its underpinning of flexible and "open" standard communications
>protocols (the TCP/IP suite) that permit diverse applications to
>instantaneously exchange information. During the coming thirty years,
>the terrestrial Internet will experience growth and evolution in ways
>which are almost unimaginable. Its communications infrastructure will
>experience huge increases in capacity, while a large varied of
>"untethered", wireless-based applications will emerge as plug-ins to
>the edges of its fiber/copper communications backbone. In the process,
>the Internet's communications protocols will evolve to meet new
>The next thirty years will also see the need to expand the Internet so
>that it can serve the communications needs of the progressive expansion
>of human intelligence into space. The "InterPlaNetary Internet"
>initiative has therefore been initiated by DARPA and NASA to chart a
>course whereby the Internet may move gracefully off-planet. The
>purpose of this seminar is to introduce a candidate InterPlanetary
>Internet (IPN) architecture to the research community and to solicit
>feedback with respect to its unique challenges. To facilitate the
>establishment of an interactive dialog with (and within) the community,
>the candidate architecture will be presented as a whole, followed by
>discussion focused in four key areas, each punctuated by opportunities
>for questions and discussion. The preliminary agenda for this seminar
>is presented below:
