The circle of cooperation is
growing beyond national,
industrial,and educational boundaries.
The WIDE Project, working in close cooperation with international organizations such as IETF and ISOC is part of a technology consortium aimed at providing solutions to current issues and standardizing network and Internet related technologies. Activities undertaken by the project to date have been recognized as highly successful and the exchange of information on a global scale as enhanced is ever increasing, facilitated through events such as the WIDE workshop held at Stanford University in January 2002. Among other activities, work currently being carried out in the area of satellite communications under the AI3 Project, is greatly influencing the deployment of the Internet through Asia and is contributing to the nurturing of human resources and the development of infrastructures in the years to come.
On the domestic scene, the WIDE Project since hosting the INET92 in Kobe has been making assertive bids for other such international conferences and is supporting and providing state-of-the-art technologies, something that has been made possible through our extensive research. WIDE is committed to the global deployment of the Internet actively supporting the 54th IETF Meeting for the first time in Asia (July 2002), the ACM Mobihoc 2004 (May 2004) and the GLIF2006 (September 2006).
