Bob Hinden, Nokia

Bob Hinden is a Nokia Fellow and works for Nokia in Mountain View, California, USA. Nokia Fellow is the highest level of recognition given by Nokia for outstanding research and development. He was previously Head of Standards at Nokia Enterprise Solutions, Chief Internet Technologist at Nokia Networks, and Chief Technical Officer (CTO) at the Nokia IP Routing Group.<BR> <BR> Bob Hinden was one of the early employees (i.e., employee number 4) of Ipsilon Networks, Inc. Ipsilon was acquired by Nokia on December 31, 1997. He was previously employed at Sun Microsystems where he was responsible for the Internet Engineering group that implements internet protocols for Sun\'s operating systems. Prior to this he worked at Bolt, Beranek, and Newman, Inc. on a variety of internetwork related projects including the first operational internet router and one of the first TCP/IP implementations.<BR> <BR> Bob Hinden was co-recipient of the 2008 IEEE Internet Award for pioneering work in the development of the first Internet routers.<BR> <BR> Bob Hinden has been active in the IETF since 1985 and is is the author of thirty-six RFCs. He was recently appointed to a position on the IETF Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC) and co-chairs the 6man working group. Prior to this he served on the Internet Architecture Board (IAB), was Area Director for Routing in the Internet Engineering Steering group from 1987 to 1994, and chaired the IPv6, Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol, Simple Internet Protocol Plus,the IP over ATM, and the Open Routing working groups. He is also a member of the RFC Editorial Board.<BR> <BR> Bob Hinden holds an B.S.E.E., and a M.S. in Computer Science from Union College, Schenectady, New York.
Bob Braden, ISI.

Danny Cohen, Sun

Danny led many projects that pioneered the use of packet networks for realtime applications (like flight simulation, voice, video, and teleconferencing) He participated in the InterNet Working Group that among other things defined IP and many 3-letter acronyms such as TCP.<BR> He opposed the fix length addressing of IPv4. His failure then to convince the INWG to adopt a variable length addressing is blamed for the need to have IPv6.

Van Jacobson, PARC

Van Jacobson did some networking stuff a long time ago. These days he spends most of his time chauffeuring a grumpy teenager & a loud seven year old. Occasionally he gives talks for people who are too busy doing real work to talk about it.
Paul Mockapetris, Nominum.

Lixia Zhang, UCLA

Lixia Zhang is a Professor in the UCLA Computer Science Department. She received her Ph.D. degree from MIT in 1989. Lixia was a research staff member at Xerox PARC from 1989 to 1995, when she joined UCLA. Her recent research projects have focused on fault tolerance in large-scale systems and network routing protocols.
Abstract: Internet pioneers Van Jacobson, Lixia Zhang, Danny Cohen, Bob Braden, and Paul Mockapetris will share their recollections of the \"behind the scenes\" discussions that went on in the \"early\" days, some 15 or 20 years ago, and you may be surprised at how they mirror the very same threads currently being seen on message lists in our community.

These key players were in the original discussions about addressing, and even then struggled with the looming challenge of address exhaustion. You won’t want to miss this chance to examine the current addressing crisis through the lens of experience.
