Named Data Networking Community Meeting 2019 will be hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on September 5 and 6, 2019. 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 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. 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.

Submission Instructions

Submissions should be 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:

Update: Submissions should be made by July 31, 2019 and acceptance notifications will be sent out on a rolling basis. Please note that we plan 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.

* New Visitor Access Requirement: Effective July 21, 2014, under the REAL ID Act of 2005, agencies, including NIST, can only accept a state-issued driver’s license or identification card from states that are REAL ID compliant or have an extension.  See the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) site for the current compliance list.

NIST currently accepts other forms of federally issued identification in lieu of a state-issued driver’s license, such as a valid passport, passport card, DOD’s Common Access Card (CAC), Veterans ID, Federal Agency HSPD-12 IDs, Military Dependents ID, Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC), and TSA Trusted Traveler ID.
