IEEE Global Internet Symposium - Program

The 22nd IEEE Global Internet Symposium (GI 2019)

Monday, 29 April, 2019 ● 14:00 – 17:30 ● Room: Forum F

The IEEE Global Internet Symposium aims to provide a top forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss advances in Internet related technologies. The focus of the symposium is on experimental systems and emerging future Internet technologies, and especially on scaling such systems to the global scale of the Internet. This year, Global Internet Symposium will have a special focus on developing countries, especially measurements-related aspects. In addition to the traditional research papers, we also encourage well-thought-through position papers, papers that compare proposed approaches, papers that clarify and compare inherent differences between competing technologies, and heresy.
