As we rapidly approach the last Internet Engineering Task Force meeting for the year, we’re pleased to report that the final winners of the Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) for 2016 have been announced.
The ANRP awards for IETF 97 go to:
- Olivier Tilmans for the Fibbing architecture that enables central control over distributed routing.
Stefano Vissicchio, Olivier Tilmans, Laurent Vanbever and Jennifer Rexford. Central Control Over Distributed Routing. Proc. ACM SIGCOMM, London, UK, August 2015.
- Benjamin Hesmans for enabling applications to control how Multipath TCP transfers data.
Benjamin Hesmans, Gregory Detal, Sebastien Barre, Raphael Bauduin and Olivier Bonaventure. SMAPP: Towards Smart Multipath TCP-enabled APPlications. Proc. ACM CoNEXT, Heidelberg, Germany, December 2015.
For the 2016 award period of the ANRP, 53 eligible nominations were received. Each submission was reviewed by several members of the selection committee according to a diverse set of criteria, including scientific excellence and substance, timeliness, relevance, and potential impact on the Internet. Based on this review, six submissions are awarded an Applied Networking Research Prize in 2016.
Olivier and Benjamin will present their work at the IRTF Open Meeting during IETF 97 in Seoul, Republic of Korea. Remote participation details will be available in due course.
The nomination window for ANRP 2017 is now open and you can submit nominations for the 2017 award period of the Applied Networking Research Prize until November 6, 2016. More information about the ANRP is available including full details of the nomination process.
Please nominate (or self-nominate) and help to support great networking research in getting the recognition it deserves at the IETF in Chicago, Prague or Singapore in 2017!
