Named Data Networking Community Meeting (NDNcomm) 2019

Venue: National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD, USA

Dates: September 5-6, 2019

More details on NDN Community Meeting 2019

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).

IEEE International Conference on Communications – (RAFNET 2019)

6th International Workshop on Research Advancements in Future Networking Technologies

Recently, a lot of research efforts have been made by both academia and industry side to promote various new and emerging network paradigms. The reason is that during the past decade, it has been realized that the current internet architecture was originally designed for end-to-end host centric communications, however, the actual focal of communications is the content itself. Hence, we have witnessed new architectures such as an Information-Centric Network (ICN) with various extensions like Content-Centric Network (CCN), Named Data Network (NDN), Data-Oriented Network Architecture, and so on. On the other hand, enormous efforts in cellular networks have been made for improving the user experience and as a result, today, we are able to use LTE-A and other networks. In this context, the upcoming 5G networking architectures, whose ongoing research is focused on the networking mechanisms regarding the massive increase in the number of connected devices, bandwidth requirements, reduced latency, and the deployment of supporting operational mechanisms such as network virtualization, cloud-based deployments, mobile edge computing, and storage and new utilization scenarios. Moreover, these modern technologies are being applied in other networking domains as well, including VANETs, Smart Grid, Smart Cities, Internet of Things, Big Data, etc.

The 6th RAFNET workshop was in Shanghai, China on May 24, 2019. The workshop had a panel discussion on the topic “ICN coming out of age” with members from the NDN Project team being the panelists. The workshop also had several NDN papers presented. The papers and presentations will be added shortly to this website.

Named Data Networking (NDN) Project Newsletter for Oct 2018 – Feb 2019

The NDN project team compiles and publishes this newsletter periodically to inform the community about recent activities, technical news, meetings, publications, presentations, code releases, and upcoming events. You can find these newsletters posted on the Named Data Networking Project blog.

Community Outreach

  • The 7th NDN Hackathon was the first remote hackathon which was held in October 20-21, 2018. This first remote hackathon had teams working on various hacks that would directly address NDN research needs, create new NDN tools or modify exiting tools, create or improve documents or know how’s. For more information see 7th NDN Hackathon

  • NDN Project has been selected as an organization for Google Summer of Code 2019
