                            The Global Internet

  The Internet has grown from the dozen or so nodes of the original
ARPAnet to a collection of more than 15,000 autonomous networks with around
1,800,000 hosts in 60 countries, forming the largest data network ever in
existence.  Its exponential growth and status as a component of the U.S.
National Information Infrastructure have significantly enhanced interest in
the Internet in the past few years.  It also uniquely combines operational
networks which large numbers of educational, research and commercial users
depend on with an experimental network conducive to the rapid introduction
of new services.    Internet technology has found widespread use even
in networks not physically connected to the Internet itself.   In both
organization and technical details, the Internet marks a departure from
customary telecommunications and data networks, even though the underlying
transmission technology is often similar.
  Many of the issues faced by the Internet today, in particular scaling,
heterogeneity, security over untrusted links and integrated services, will
confront both private and public (data) networks in the near future.
  Technical papers are solicited concerning key Internet problems including
the following:

  o scaling and heterogeneity

  o novel applications for the Internet

  o routing, addressing and naming

  o support for mobility

  o integration of new technologies such as ATM, SMDS, frame relay and
    large public data networks with the Internet

  o information services and resource discovery

  o large-scale multicast

  o internet  multimedia,  such  as  real-time  audio/video  conferencing,
    signaling issues

  o quality-of-service issues in an internet

  o resource accounting and billing

  o privacy and security in internetworks

  Electronic  submissions  in  PostScript,  LaTeX  or  HTML  formats  are
encouraged.  You may retrieve guidelines for authors by anonymous ftp from, directory pub/hgschulz/jsac, through the World-Wide Web
