Applied Networking Research Prize Winners
By Mat Ford
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 97 went to the following two individuals:
- Benjamin Hesmans for enabling applications to control how Multipath TCP transfers data. See the full paper at http://conferences2.sigcomm.org/co-next/2015/img/papers/conext15-final169.pdf.
- Olivier Tilmans for theFibbingarchitecture that enables central control over distributed routing. See the full paper at http://conferences.sigcomm.org/sigcomm/2015/pdf/papers/p43.pdf.
Hesmans and Tilmans presented their findings to the Internet Research Task Force open meeting during IETF 97. Their slides are available at https://www.ietf.org/proceedings/97/slides/slides-97-irtfopen-fibbing-central-control-over-distributed-routing-00.pdf and https://www.ietf.org/proceedings/97/slides/slides-97-irtfopen-towards-smart-multipath-tcp-enabled-applications-00.pdf. Thanks to Meetecho, audio and video from the presentations is also available at www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNL8bwotLMg (from 00:13:50).
ANRP winners have been selected for all of the IETF meetings in 2017. The following winners will present their work at the IETF 98 meeting in Chicago:
- Yossi Gilad, a postdoctoral researcher at Boston University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Gilad will present improvements to routing security using the “path-end validation” extension to the RPKI.
- Alistair King, an Internet Data Scientist at the Center for Applied Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA), SDSC, UC San Diego. King will present a framework to enable efficient processing of large amounts of distributed and/or liveBGPdata.
The call for nominations for the 2018 ANRP award cycle will open in mid-2017. Join the [email protected] mailing list for all ANRP related notifications.
