Keynote address

Prof. Dr.Ing. Carsten Bormann [slides]

Carsten Bormann received his Diploma in Computer Science in 1985 and his PhD in Engineering (Dr.Ing.) in 1990 from Technische Universität Berlin. Serving as a Honorar-professor for Internet technology at the Universität Bremen, he is member of the board of its Center for Computing Technology (TZI); he is also a Visiting Professor at the Design department of the Universität der Künste in Berlin (Institute of Electronic Business).

His research interests are in protocol and system architectures for computer-mediated communication between humans. He has been leading the IETF efforts on Integrated Services for LowBitrate Links (ISSLOW) and is cochairing the Robust Header Compression WG (ROHC), which are a prerequisite to seamless Internet Multimedia Conferencing over lowspeed links (wired and wireless), including Internet Telephony. From 2002 to 2004, he served as a founding chair of the mobility task force of TERENA, the European association of research networks. Most recently, he is cochairing the IETF IPv6 over LowPower Wireless Personal Area Networks WG (6LOWPAN).
