Welcome to the Internet Technical Committee


Technical Committee


The Internet Technical Committee (ITC) is a joint committee of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and the Internet Society (ISOC). It stimulates interdisciplinary technical exchange, application of state of the art communications and related technologies to the Internet infrastructure and services. The Committee seeks to generate new technical insights from interaction between the Internet and public network communities, contributing to the worldwide emergence of a ubiquitous, multimedia, and high-performance Internet. The Committee endorses conferences and workshops, organizes sessions at conferences of both Societies, and encourages submission of articles to their publications. The scope of the Committee includes evolution of the IP protocol; architectural and scaling issues; addressing, routing, and directory services; protocols and technologies in support of real-time media; dynamic control of quality of service; congestion control and admission policies; signaling and network management; access via diverse local and metropolitan networks; information retrieval and sharing; the enabling of new services and applications over the Internet; and the development of novel Internet paradigms, such as based on network virtualization, information-centric networking and Internet of things. Beyond the scientific activities, ITC’s scope includes contribution to the respective standards activities as well as nomination of deserving members for awards, promotions to IEEE Senior Member or IEEE Fellow, and for Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Communications Society.

You can join the Internet technical committee by subscribing to its mailing list. The committee also meets at the major IEEE Communications Society conferences such as InfocomGlobecom and ICC.

The Internet Technical Committee was officially created in December 1994.
