NIST to Host Named Data Networking Community Meeting Sept 5-6, 2019
By CHIPS Magazine - June 13, 2019
The organizing committee of the Named Data Networking Community Meeting 2019 cordially invites you to participate in and contribute to this annual event! The meeting will be hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology Sept. 5-6, 2019. NDNComm brings together a large community of researchers from academia, industry, and government, as well as users and other parties interested in the development of Named Data Networking (NDN) technology.

NDN is an architectural realization of the broad Information Centric Networking (ICN) vision that enables communications by named, secured data at the network layer. By aligning the network service with application needs, NDN offers many advantages, including stronger security and trustworthiness, enhanced network usability, as well as scalability and resiliency in network communication, NIST said in a release to announce the event. In particular, NDN is especially suitable for emerging network environments such as edge computing and internet of things (IoT) technologies.

NDNcomm provides a community forum to discuss the state of NDN protocols, software, testbed, and its application to various network environments. While the topics cover all aspects of NDN, this year the committee is particularly interested in new ideas and recent or ongoing progress on NDN in edge computing and IoT. The committee invite submissions from the broader NDN community for presentations, posters, demos, and panels on topics including but not limited to:

  • NDN in edge computing, IoT, mobile, and ad hoc environments;
  • NDN applications, such as 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 presented as a one-page abstract 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:

Submissions should be made by July 1, 2019. Acceptance notifications will be sent by July 22, 2019. Please note that NIST plans to keep the submission site open until August 20, 2019; however, late submissions will only be accommodated if feasible. An abstract submission is not required for participation in NDNcomm 2019.

The NDNcomm 2019 co-chairs are Alex Afanasyev (FIU), Lotfi Benmohamed (NIST), Tamer Refaei (MITRE).

No registration fee is required. Registration closes on August 29, 2019.

All attendees must be pre-registered to gain entry to the NIST access-controlled campus. Photo identification must be presented at the main gate to be admitted to the conference. International attendees are required to present a passport. Attendees must wear their conference badge at all times while on the campus. There is no on-site registration for meetings held at NIST.
