The First Joint Space Internet Workshop
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
November 13 - 15, 2000
ScopeThe Science, Engineering, and Standards communities are pleased to announce the first of a series of Space Internet Workshops. This series will address all issues related to Internet or Internet-like communication protocols in space environments. The vision is to bring together and integrate the Internet, the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems, and any other applicable protocol suites, to enable transparent end-to-end Internet (or future Internet) communications to space missions resources. Communications within and between the various space environments are included. The purpose of this first workshop is to foster broadly based, comprehensive discussion of cost-effective technical solutions for the design and engineering of mission communications. The goal is to develop an understanding of the technical "territory" and to plan for working the issues in future workshops.
The first workshop seeks to bring forth results and information that will help to:
All types of missions
and "space" environments, for example:
* Local or Wiredare of interest. Issues and solutions related to space and ground systems and operations as well as mission design and implementation will be under consideration.
Workshop participants are
invited to present position papers, identify issues, and discuss ways to
expand the solution space. Participants are encouraged to consider
end-to-end engineering issues and overall cost-benefit trades. All
workshop activities will take place in an open forum and participants are
advised that there is no explicit protection for proprietary information.
Call for AbstractsSelection of all contributed oral presentations is based on the submitted abstracts. An individual may be an author on more than one submission. A selection committee will determine which oral presentation to accept, by considering quality and significance of the content as well as its appropriateness to the subject and scope of the workshop.
Submitters of non selected oral presentations will be invited to contribute their paper as a poster or technical demonstration. Oral, poster, or demonstration presentations may discuss or describe applications of commercial products/services, but must be substantially more than advertisement in nature.
International participants are welcome, as are participants from governmental, private, academic, and commercial/industrial organizations.
All submissions and presentations must adhere to relevant government regulations regarding disclosure and distribution. Submission will constitute approval to publish in any way or in any venue (including the Internet) deemed appropriate by the organizing committee. Such publication will not imply endorsement by NASA, the US government, or any other entity.
Submitted abstracts should be between one and two pages (8.5" x 11") in length and must relate directly to the subject and scope of the workshop. Abstracts should be submitted as plain text, with a list of the authors and their affiliations (including address), telephone numbers, and email addresses. Submit abstracts electronically via email addressed to the organizing committee at
firstname.lastname@example.orgSend all questions, including those regarding formatting or appropriateness of material to be included in a submission, to the organizing committee at the same email address.
We prefer to receive abstracts
as plain text only. Abstracts should also be accompanied by certain
essential information. From the workshop home page (http://siw.gsfc.nasa.gov),
please consult the page concerning guidelines on abstract/paper/presentation
Suggested Topics Within the Context of the WorkshopThe intent of the following list of possible topics for the first joint Space Internet Workshop is to stimulate thought and is not all-inclusive.
