The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) is awarded for recent results in applied networking research that are relevant for transitioning into shipping Internet products and related standardization efforts. The ANRP awards presented during IETF 96 went to the following two individuals:
Samuel Jero for a security analysis of the QUIC protocol. See the full paper at https://www.sjero.net/pubs/2015_Oakland_QUIC.pdf.
Dario Rossi for characterizing anycast adoption and deployment in the IPv4 Internet. See the full paper at http://conferences2.sigcomm.org/co-next/2015/img/papers/conext15-final100.pdf.
Jero and Rossi presented their findings to the Internet Research Task Force open meeting during IETF 96. Their slides are available at https://www.ietf.org/proceedings/96/slides/slides-96-irtfopen-1.pdf and https://www.ietf.org/proceedings/96/slides/slides-96-irtfopen-0.pdf. Thanks to Meetecho, audio and video from the presentations is also available at http://recs.conf.meetecho.com/Playout/watch.jsp?recording=IETF96_IRTFOPEN&chapter=chapter_1 (from 00:19:40).
ANRP winners have been selected for all of the IETF meetings in 2016. The following winners will present their work at the IETF 97 meeting in Seoul:
Olivier Tilmans, a PhD student at the IP Networking Lab, Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium. Tilmans will present a Fibbing architecture that enables central control over distributed routing.
Benjamin Hesmans, a PhD student at the IP Networking Lab, Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium. Hesmans will present solutions that enable applications to control how Multipath TCP transfers data.
The call for nominations for the 2017 ANRP award cycle will close on 6 November 2016. Join the [email protected] mailing list for all ANRP related notifications.
