About Us

The goal of IIREF - Indian Internet Research and Engineering Forum is to promote and nurture the contributions within India towards the development of Internet Standards through IETF. IIREF aims to foster this by creating a forum for interchange of information among researchers, and contributors to Internet Standards.

We offer fellowships for potential candidates to attend IETF meetings and encourage members to apply through this portal. We regularly organize technical forum meetings to discuss about the upcoming and potential Internet Drafts with inputs from expert contributors in few selected domains. We also offer training programs at various locations in order to educate about the process involved in development of Internet standards. Our current areas of interest include contributions to Internet Standards relating to Internet Security.
