Group description

Workshop on Internet Technology Adoption and Transition (ITAT)

  • Date: December 4-5, 2013
  • Cambridge, UK

Papers for the ITAT workshop can be found on the Materials tab of this page.



Our workshop focused on discussion. As such, presentations were limited to about 15 minutes. After each group of papers, we set aside a half hour for discussion.

As this was an interdisciplinary group, the program committee took the approach that we would be mixing practical with theoretical, so that we didn”t go too far one direction. There are many possible organizations. This is the one we chose.
