Do join the Marconi Fellows at our annual symposium, Internet 2025. It will be at the National Academies of Engineering and Science Building. It will also be webcast with the help of the Internet Society.

The presenters include:

Marty Cooper built the first cell phone.

Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf created what became TCP/IP and are often called “The Fathers of the Internet.”

John Cioffi is called “The Father of DSL” and also made important early contributions to MIMO.

Len Kleinrock at UCLA connected the first node of what became the Internet on September 2nd, 1969.
