EuroDIG “Extra!” on October 15 – Delay-Tolerant Networks

The session on Delay Tolerant Networks found great interest at EuroDIG this year and the organisers agreed to have a follow up on this emerging issue. Therefore, we organise an EuroDIG “Extra!” on 15th October 2021 from 15:00–16:30 UTC (17:00–18:30 CEST).

Special guest will be Vint Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist for Google.

The InterPlanetary Networking Special Interest Group (IPNSIG) contributed to this topic with their thoughts on the development of a Solar System Internet and a related report was released recently.
