Space-Terrestrial Internetworking Workshop

The 2024 Space-Terrestrial Internetworking Workshop will be held at the IEEE Space Mission Challenges for Information Technology - IEEE Space Computing Conference (IEEE SMC-IT/SCC 2024).

2024 Theme
“Bits on the Moon”


The Space-Terrestrial Internetworking (STINT) Workshop addresses emerging technical topics related to data exchange between and amongst space-based and terrestrial network nodes. Such communications systems are generally based on the adoption of DTN (Delay-/Disruption-Tolerant Networking architecture) and its related protocols, including the Bundle Protocol (BP) and the Licklider Transmission Protocol (LTP). STINT brings together some of the most influential members of the field of data transfer between space and terrestrial nodes. We seek contributions with a clear focus on packetized, multi-path, and multi-hop data exchange between and among space-based and terrestrial (plus planetary) network nodes.
