Named Data Networking Community Meeting 2020 will take place as a virtual meeting on September 10 and 11, 2020. 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, we are particularly interested in work that applies NDN to the problems it can solve better than alternative technologies. 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.

Recordings from the conference are now available:
