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 and the application
of state of the art communications and related technologies to 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
sponsors and cosponsors 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 potential Internet successors. 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.
