Abstract: Assessing the Internet: Lessons Learned, Strategies for Evolution, and Future Possibilities

This is a webcast of the ACM Turing Lecture for 2005. The ACM Turing Lecture is presented by the ACM Turing Award Recipients from the previous year. The lecture is being webcast from ACM SIGCOMM 2005 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn are two key pioneers of "internetworks" (dating back to 1973), and ACM is particularly pleased to invite "all users of the Internet" to attend this year's ACM Turing Lecture by watching the live Webcast coverage of the lecture which will begin at 6:00 p.m. EST on Monday, August 22. (Ironically, this will be the first ACM Turing Lecture that is webcast live.)

Vint Cert and Bob Kahn were cited for pioneering work on internetworking, including the design and implementation of the Internet's basic communications protocols, TCP/IP, and for inspired leadership in networking.
