In recent years, the focus of many top academic networking conferences has shifted away from the wide-area Internet. At the same time, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) remains a vital place to do practice-facing research on wide-area networking and security protocols. So, we thought it was time to bring academics to the IETF, and develop an exciting academic venue that refocuses the community on wide-area networking and security research!

To that end, we are rebooting the Applied Networking Research Workshop (ANRW2018) that will be held during IETF 102 on July 16 2018. The goal is to create a top academic venue for wide-area networking and security research and a path to transition research back into IETF standards, while inspiring academics to work on topics and open problems addressed at the IETF.

We have several high-quality invited talks lined up (see below!), and are now soliciting submitted talks and papers. Submitted talks can be not-for-publication re-submissions of works that have been published elsewhere during the last 12 months; for these, we simply require a 2-page abstract. We are also seeking 6-page short papers for publication. The paper submission deadline is April 20, 2018.

If you think your work can have an impact on the design and operation of the Internet, please consider submitting to ANRW2018!

Call for papers:

Invited talks:

  • Why (and How) Networks Should Run Themselves
    Speaker: Nick Feamster (Princeton University)
  • ARTEMIS: Neutralizing BGP Hijacking within a Minute
    Speaker: Alberto Dainotti (CAIDA)
  • Run, Walk, Crawl: Towards Dynamic Link Capacities
