Appointed IRTF chair

31 March 2019

I've just returned from the IETF 104 meeting in Prague, where I succeeded Allison Mankin as chair of the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF). The IRTF focuses on longer-term research issues related to the Internet, working in parallel with the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) which focuses on more short-term issues of engineering and standards making. I'm honoured to have been selected as IRTF chair, and look forward to working with the Internet research community.
