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 2017 have been announced.
The ANRP awards for IETF 100 go to:
Paul Emmerich for developing the high-speed packet generator MoonGen.
Paul Emmerich, Sebastian Gallenmüller, Daniel Raumer, Florian Wohlfart, and Georg Carle, “MoonGen: A Scriptable High-Speed Packet Generator,” in Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) 2015, Tokyo, Japan, Oct. 2015.
Roland van Rijswijk-Deij for analysing the impact of elliptic curve cryptography on DNSSEC validation performance.
Roland van Rijswijk-Deij, Kaspar Hageman, Anna Sperotto and Aiko Pras, “The Performance Impact of Elliptic Curve Cryptography on DNSSEC Validation,” in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, Volume 25, Issue 2, April 2017.
For the 2017 award period of the ANRP, 39 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 were awarded an Applied Networking Research Prize in 2017.
Paul and Roland will present their work at the IRTF Open Meeting during IETF 100 in Singapore. Remote participation details will be available in due course.
The ANRP is awarded for recent results in applied networking research that are relevant for transitioning into shipping Internet products and related standardization efforts. Researchers with relevant, recent results are encouraged to apply for this prize, which will offer them the opportunity to present and discuss their work with the engineers, network operators, policy makers and scientists that participate in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and its research arm, the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF). The goal of the Applied Networking Research Prize is to recognize the best new ideas in networking, and bring them to the IETF and IRTF especially in cases where they would not otherwise see much exposure or discussion.
The nomination window for ANRP 2018 is now open and you can submit nominations until November 5, 2017. 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 2018!
