Special Interest Groups

ITC gives importance to cutting-edge research areas opening Special Interest Groups and supporting related activities such as Special Issues, Conferences, Workshops, Standardization, etc. A SIG is generally opened on a very recent subject in Internet-working, if (and only if) there is a clear activity related to the subject, in which ITC members are involved and about which the ITC members are willing to report during meetings. Here is the list of current SIGs.
