The Engineer, the Operator, and the International Standard

We are pleased to support our colleagues at UQ Cyber and would like to invite you to join us for drinks and canapes followed by a seminar from Dr Stephen Banghart of USA’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

In 1968, a group of graduate students at ARPA started taking notes as they discussed the future of the internet. Little did they know that those notes would go on to become one of the first internationally recognized networking standard. In this talk, the storied history of computer and internet standards will be traced through time and connected to the engineers and operators along the way that made it all happen.

The current world of international standards may appear distant, but our engineers and operational experts are more important to the process now than ever. Learn how to get involved professionally or individually in the exciting work of shaping the internet.
