Thursday Lunch Speaker Series

Thursday, 16 November 2017, 12:30-13:15

3 years on: Open Standards, Open Source, Open Loop

Dave Ward, Senior Vice President, Chief Architect & CTO - Engineering

At IETF 91, many outrageous claims were emphatically made about the relationship between Open Standards and Open Source. Three years later, let’s take a look at how much progress has been made, if any; and discuss successes and failures. Communities of developers and engineers have fully formed Open Source efforts and are building large, effective communities without any documented standardization as a part of their strategy. How should SDOs interact with developers, communities and deployers of Open Source? There are claims and perhaps proof that Open Source now fully defines the industries "de facto Standards." Does the process of standardization and the contents and lifecycle of a standard need to fundamentally change?

IETF Plenary

Wednesday, 15 November 2017, 17:10-19:40

The IETF Plenary Session includes a panel on:

The Internet, a look forward: Social, political, and technical perspectives

Adding a digit to count IETF meetings invites introspection and prognostication. For the IETF100 Plenary, three prominent strategists will share their unique perspectives on what the Internet will look like in thirty years. They will consider how the Internet’s influence on our lives and social systems will change, and how our influence on the Internet will also change, socially, politically, and technically.

Moderated by Brian Trammell, member of the Internet Architecture Board, panelists include:

  • Monique Morrow
    President and Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet, a non-profit organization focused on providing digital identity for those individuals most under-served
  • Jun Murai
    Founder of WIDE Project and Professor at Keio University with a research focus in global computer networking and communication, and known as the "Father of Japan’s Internet" or "Internet Samurai".
  • Henning Schulzrinne
    Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and chair of the Department of Computer Science at Columbia University, New York

The plenary will also include presentation of the Internet Society Jonathan B. Postel Service Award.
