DARPA plans network workshop

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency will sponsor an industry workshop on defending mobile ad hoc networks Feb. 18.

DARPA wants to develop technologies that protect such networks from worms, malicious codes, remote intrusions and run-time failures. It did not say when it plans to issue the program's requests for proposals.

According to an announcement released today, the Defense Department's research and development shop must prepare and develop defenses for mobile ad-hoc networks because the department's emerging network-centric warfare systems will experience computer network attacks and hardware and software failures, which could prevent forces from accomplishing their missions.

The workshop fee is $125 per person. The event is limited to three people per organization.

DARPA will hold the workshop at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, Va. The registration deadline is Feb. 12.

Signup forms for the event and for giving an oral presentation are available by e-mailing Leanne Wiegand at [email protected]
