The full agenda for the technical plenary is:

  1. Welcome
  2. Reporting


  3. Technical Topic: Network topology and geography

    Since network gear, links, and the nodes they connect must be in some specific physical place, there is always a relationship between geography and network topology. The flow of data through that topology has generally, however, been relatively independent of the geography.

    Recently, some public policy proposals have tried to tie the flow of data on the network to national or regional boundaries. This panel will discuss the relationship between geography and network topology from three points of view.

    Each panelist will make a brief presentation, and then we will discuss the implications of their findings. A Question & Answer session will follow the presentations.

  4. IAB Open Mic

Live text transcription of the technical plenary will also be available. More information will be available soon.
