Scope and Overview

Full research papers are solicited for the protocols, applications, and operational concepts required to make these internetworks both technically feasible and operationally deployable. Specifically, STINT welcomes researchers and practitioners in the following areas.

  • Modeling and dynamics of mobile space-based for optical\RF networks
  • Autonomous configuration and control of network nodes
  • Protocols, applications, and concepts for network management
  • Adaptive networking technologies (e.g., SDN, ICN)
  • Delay- and disruption-tolerant networking
  • Store-and-forward routing, congestion modeling, and topological synchronization
  • Deep Space Networks and the solar system Internet
  • End-to-end security services across an internetworking overlay
  • Commercial/scientific/government mission concepts enabled by internetworks
  • Optical network availability, resilience and survivability
  • Optical network using photonic integrated circuits
  • Optical time and frequency transfer
