INET ’95 Honolulu

27-30 June 1995
INET '95 Honolulu

The fifth INET conference carries the theme "The Internet: Towards a Global Information Infrastructure” and takes place during a time of extraordinary growth and change in the Internet, as noted by Internet Society President Vint Cerf in his welcoming remarks. The NSFNET (National Science Foundation Network) had just been decommissioned as the main US backbone of the Internet, and within a few months the NSF will no longer subsidize the registration of most domain names. Against this backdrop, a rapidly increasing number of public and private institutions worldwide depend on the reliability and security of the Internet. The impressive lineup of sessions, tutorials, workshops, and demonstrations at INET ’95 reflects the growing interest in the Internet and the World Wide Web in the realms of education, business, and application design--and the technical challenges that attend these developments.
