Bringing Internet Research to the IETF: Inaugural Applied Networking Research Workshop Program Now Available

The Internet grew out of the networking research community and there remain tremendous synergies between the research community and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the world’s premier Internet standards development organisation. For several years, the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) has been awarding prizes to researchers whose work is most relevant for transitioning into shipping Internet products and related standardization efforts. These Applied Networking Research Prizes include the opportunity for researchers to travel to and present their work at IETF meetings.

Now, in a bigger and bolder effort to increase researcher involvement in the IETF and to expose more IETF attendees to the latest networking research results, we are helping to organise the first Applied Networking Research Workshop which will take place on Saturday, 16 July, immediately prior to the IETF 96 meeting in Berlin, Germany.

The preliminary workshop program is now available online and includes sessions on Multipath, SDN Routing & Peering, Transport Quality & “Happy Eyeballs”, Measurement, and Internet Media. Accepted papers will be made available at no charge via the ACM Digital Library in due course.

The inaugural ACM, IRTF & Internet Society Applied Networking Research Workshop 2016 (ANRW’16) is an academic workshop that provides a forum for researchers, vendors, network operators and the Internet standards community to present and discuss emerging results in applied networking research. It is sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM, the IRTF and the Internet Society.

This academic workshop is open to all; the registration fee is $100 USD. See for details. Student travel grants are available and the deadline to apply for those is June 24, 2016.

So if you’re already planning to be in Berlin for IETF, check out the program and consider extending your trip by a day to take in these great research talks. And if you’re a researcher new to the IETF, please apply for a travel grant if that’s appropriate, come along to the workshop, and take advantage of the free 1-day guest passes for researchers to attend the IETF.
