Event description
Join us in celebrating ALOHA Net's remarkable accomplishments

About this Event

In 1968, a team of researchers at the University of Hawaii developed the first wireless network - ALOHA Net - and its impact has been felt ever since. Every major mobile network and almost all two-way satellite data networks today still use the ALOHA channel.

CITRIS and the Baskin School of Engineering at UC Santa Cruz are hosting a symposium on January 24th to celebrate the remarkable accomplishments of the ALOHA system, and to honor Norman Abramson and Franklin Kuo for their technical leadership. The symposium brings together the directors of the ALOHA systems project, several of the original members of the development team, UH faculty and alumni, and several distinguished speakers addressing the impact and influence of the ALOHA channel and the ALOHA system over the years. The event also features an illustrious group of speakers and panelists to discuss how networking will continue to evolve into the future.
