Welcome to the home page of the ACM SIGCOMM workshop on Delay Tolerant Networks (WDTN 2005)

Technical Area

Today, the most successful network architecture is that of the Internet. It has scaled well beyond the original plan of its designers, and the Internet Protocol has been carried on a great number of underlying protocols, including itself. However, the Internet's protocol architecture suffers some problems when implemented on classes of networks for which it was not originally designed. For example, when disconnection and reconnection is common, or link performance is highly variable or extreme, one or more of the traditional Internet protocols do not work well. In this workshop, we wish to explore physical networks that operate significantly differently from wired, connected networks and the protocol architectures and algorithms used to deal with such situations. Techniques for making applications tolerant to disruptions and/or high delays are also requested.
