The Named Data Networking Community Meeting 2018 will be hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Sept.19-20, 2018 – and you are invited to participate.
NDNComm is an annual event that attracts a range of researchers from academia, industry and government, in addition to users and other parties interested in the development of Named Data Networking technology. NDN is a new internet architecture that allows content to be directly named and accessed at the network layer. “By aligning the network service with application needs, NDN offers many advantages, including better trustworthiness, scalability and resiliency, in network communication,” NIST said. NDN is especially suitable for emerging network environments —such as edge computing and the internet of things (IoT).
NDNcomm provides a community forum to discuss the current state of NDN protocols, a software, testbed, and its application to various network environments. The NDN research testbed is a shared resource that now includes nodes in Asia and Europe.
While the topics cover all aspects of NDN, this year NIST is particularly interested in new ideas and recent or ongoing efforts focused on NDN in edge computing and IoT. NIST is soliciting submissions from the broader NDN community for presentations, posters, demos and panel discussions including these topics and more:
- NDN in edge computing, IoT, mobile and ad hoc environments;
- NDN applications in areas related to scientific data, education, entertainment, tactical edge, smart cities and transportation;
- Security and privacy at different layers of the architecture;
- Management and measurement for NDN networks;
- Experience with NDN experimentation;
- Strategies to stimulate NDN development, both from research and commercial perspectives.
Submissions should be one page in PDF format containing the title, authors and an abstract. The title should start with “Presentation:”, “Poster:”, “Demo:” or “Panel:”. Please submit your abstract at this site: https://ndncomm2018.named-data.net/
Submissions should be made by July 15, 2018, and acceptance notifications will be sent out by Aug. 1, 2018. NIST will develop a meeting agenda by then. The submission site will remain open until Sept. 1, 2018, however late submissions will only be accommodated if feasible. Please note that an abstract submission is not required for participation.
