NIST Workshop on Named Data Networking Registration Open

Tags: Advanced Networking

A two-day Named Data Networking (NDN) Workshop will take place on the NIST campus in Gaithersburg, MD on May 31-June 1, 2016 and registration is open now. NIST has ongoing efforts in Cyber-Physical Systems / Internet of Things and Big Data. This workshop will gather representatives from industry, government, and academia to discuss the role that the NDN future internet architecture can play in support of these two critical network environments, as well as future content delivery over mobile networks (e.g., augmented reality).

Future internet architectures based on the information-centric networking (ICN) paradigm propose to address ongoing challenges in supporting modern applications with IP, especially in networks of diverse and intermittent links. To do so, they effectively bring Web-like semantics to the network layer, directly supporting dissemination of named, signed data. Named Data Networking (NDN) is one such architecture that has a growing community of interest.

Given the increasing interest in the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, and VR/AR, which is driven by their potential for a strong economic impact across sectors, this workshop will examine NDN as an alternative networking approach in these areas. The first day of the workshop is focused on IoT and will feature keynotes by invited speakers as well as presentations and panels. It will explore how ICN/NDN addresses some of the key challenges in security, multi-party communication models, stack and application complexity, efficient resource utilization, and scalability faced by emerging IoT applications. The second day will have a similar format focused on the themes of Big Data and Mobile AR. 

Anyone interested in NDN is invited to attend the NDN panel at the Internet2 Global Summit, where a collaboration among Cisco, PARC, Internet2 and several of its member universities to host an NDN testbed on the Internet2 infrastructure will be featured.
