Space-Terrestrial Internetworking Workshop

The 2023 Space-Terrestrial Internetworking Workshop will be held at the 11th IEEE International Conference on Wireless for Space and Extreme Environments (WISEE 2023)

The Space-Terrestrial Internetworking (STINT) Workshop addresses emerging technical topics related to data exchange between and amongst space-based and terrestrial network nodes. Such communications systems are generally based on the adoption of DTN (Delay-/Disruption-Tolerant Networking architecture) and its related protocols, including the Bundle Protocol (BP) and the Licklider Transmission Protocol (LTP). They accept space assets as first-class nodes performing network functions, including stateful packet inspection, routing, management, and security.

Bringing together some of the most influential members of the field of data transfer between space and terrestrial nodes via delay-tolerant networks with time-varying topologies, STINT seeks contributions with a clear focus on packetized, multi-path, and multi-hop data exchange between and among space-based and terrestrial (plus planetary) network nodes.


Full research papers are solicited for the protocols, applications, and operational concepts required to make these internetworks technically feasible and operationally deployable. Specifically, STINT welcomes researchers and practitioners in the following areas (not exclusive list).

  • Solar system Internet
  • Interplanetary networking.
  • Mars Communications (networking aspects)
  • Lunar Communications (networking aspects)
  • Satellite networks
  • Integration of Satellite and IoT networks based on the bundle protocol with BPv7
  • Satellite and terrestrial networks for emergency communications
  • DTN architecture
  • Bundle protocolBPv7 applications (performance, security, implementations, tests, etc.)
  • Bundle Routing (CGR/SABR, interregional routing, others)
  • LTP protocol (performance, security, implementations, tests, etc.)
  • DTN applications for use with BPv7 networks
  • Applications of BPSec and BPSec Security Contexts
  • Delay-Tolerant Network Management
  • Delay-Tolerant Key Management
  • Time-Variant Routing strategies
  • Naming and addressing in BPv7 networks


STINT follows the guidelines for paper submissions from (WISEE 2023).
