Named Data Networking Community Meeting 2018 will be hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on September 19 and 20, 2018. The organizing committee cordially invites you to participate in and contribute to the event!
NDNComm is an annual event that 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 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. In particular, NDN is especially suitable for emerging network environments such as edge computing and Internet of Things (IoT).
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 we are particularly interested in new ideas and recent or ongoing progress on NDN in edge computing and IoT. We 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 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 August 1, 2018, and we will develop a meeting agenda by then (note that we plan to keep the submission site open till September 1, 2018, however late submissions will only be accommodated if feasible). Please note that an abstract submission is not required for participation.
