Why Should You Attend INET 2000?

INET is the premier event in the Internet industry, providing an international forum for advancing the development and implementation of Internet networks, technologies, applications, and policies.

The world’s Internet leaders meet at INET conferences to exchange experiences and shape the future of the Internet. INET attendees examine strategic issues emanating from the Internet’s impact on commerce and finance, education, technologies and societies. INET 2000 presents a strong technical program with all papers peer reviewed by industry experts from around the world.


The Internet Society (ISOC) is pleased to host the 10th Annual INET Conference.
