CFP: ACM, IRTF & ISOC Applied Networking Research Workshop 2016

Submission deadline is in less than two weeks!

  ACM, IRTF & ISOC Applied Networking Research Workshop 2016

                      Berlin, Germany

*** CALL FOR PAPERS ***

The inaugural ACM, IRTF & ISOC Applied Networking Research Workshop
2016 (ANRW’16) is an academic workshop that provides a forum for
researchers, vendors, network operators, and the Internet standards
community to present and discuss emerging results in applied
networking research. It is sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM, the Internet
Research Task Force (IRTF) and the Internet Society (ISOC).

Researchers should consider submitting early/emerging results that
illustrate the scientific and engineering principles underlying the
Internet architecture, protocols and applications; that demonstrate
new capabilities, features, or extensions to the Internet protocol
layers; that enhance our understanding of how Internet protocols work
in real-world deployments or realistic test-beds; or that improve
Internet security and privacy, scalability, performance, and
robustness.

The ANRW’16 particularly encourages the submission of results that
could form the basis for future engineering work in the IETF, that
could change operational Internet practices, that can help better
specify Internet protocols, or that could influence further research

Apologies for CFP

A recent configuration change had inadvertently allowed general posting to this list. I've now turned
that back off.

Deadline April 24: GreeNets 2016, June 27-28, 2016 - Valencia, Spain


====================================================================================
 3rd EAI International Conference on Green Communications and Networking - GreeNets 2016

CALL FOR PAPERS

[Scope]

Global warming and climate change have been a growing worldwide concern. Six sources, i.e.,
transportation, power, buildings, industry, agriculture and forestry, and land use, have been
identified as major contributors to the rise of global carbon dioxide (CO2). The mobile industry is seen
as a potential enabler to reduce greenhouse gases contributed by these six sources provided that
appropriate measures are implemented. On the other hand, the mobile industry itself will also
contribute to CO2 emission through network operations, mobile equipments, etc. To meet the requirement
of low-carbon economy development, it is necessary to reduce the operation expenditure or energy
consumption of mobile networks, while maintaining acceptable quality of service. This conference will
explore and expl
 ain the scope and challenges of designing, building, and deploying GreeNets. In this regard, the
conference aims to establish a forum to bring together research professionals from diverse f!
 ields including green mobile networ
ks, system architectures, networking & communication protocols, applications, test-bed and
prototype, traffic balance and energy-efficient cooperation transmission, system and application
issues related to GreeNets.

ANRP presentations at IETF-95

Hi,

we are extremely pleased to report that for the 2016 award period of
the Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP), 53 eligible nominations
were received. Each submission was reviewed by several members of the
selection committee 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. Two prize winners will present
their work at the IRTF Open Meeting during IETF-95 in Buenos Aires,
Argentina. The ANRPs for IETF-95 go to:

This memo specifies two elliptic curves over prime fields that offer
a high level of practical security in cryptographic applications,
including Transport Layer Security (TLS).  These curves are intended
to operate at the ~128-bit and ~224-bit security level, respectively,
and are generated deterministically based on a list of required
properties.

New Research Group chartered: Thing-to-Thing

Thing-to-Thing Research Group (T2TRG)
https://irtf.org/t2trg

The Thing-to-Thing Research Group (T2TRG) will investigate open research
issues in turning a true "Internet of Things" into reality, an Internet where
low-resource nodes ("things", "constrained nodes") can communicate among
themselves and with the wider Internet, in order to partake in permissionless
innovation. The focus of the T2TRG are on issues that touch opportunities for
standardization in the IETF, i.e., it will start at the adaptation layer
connecting devices to IP, and end at the application layer with architectures
and APIs for communicating and making data and management functions (including
security functions) available.

Motivation

A first wave of IoT standards has been completed by the IETF. Consortia are now
forming to build infrastructure and industry agreements around those. This
generates new requirements for research, based on actual usage of the standards
now available.

In parallel, W3C has set up an IG (Interest Group) on the Web of Things (WoT);
this is operating on a similar timeline as an RG does in the IRTF. A parallel
activity associated with the IETF/IRTF can help ensure the common work does not
stop at the traditional boundaries of the W3C, but considers networking issues
as well. IETF WGs are also active on these topics, but an IRTF RG can provide a
more long-term perspective to the collaboration.

Areas of Interest

A number of areas of interest have been identified:

New Research Group chartered: Human Rights Protocol Considerations

Human Rights Protocol Considerations Research Group (HRPC)
https://irtf.org/hrpc

Background

The Human Rights Protocol Considerations Research Group is chartered to research
whether standards and protocols can enable, strengthen or threaten human rights,
as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) [1] and the
International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) [2], specifically,
but not limited to the right to freedom of expression and the right to freedom
of assembly.

The research group takes as its starting point the problem statement that
human-rights-enabling characteristics of the Internet might be degraded if they
are not properly defined, described and sufficiently taken into account in
protocol development. Not protecting these characteristics could result in
(partial) loss of functionality and connectivity.

As evinced by RFC 1958, the Internet aims to be the global network of networks
that provides unfettered connectivity to all users at all times and for any
content. Open, secure and reliable connectivity is essential for rights such as
freedom of expression and freedom of association. Since the Internet’s objective
of connectivity makes it an enabler of human rights, its architectural design
converges with the human rights framework.

The Internet was designed with freedom and openness of communications as core
values. But as the scale and the industrialization of the Internet has grown
greatly, the influence of such world-views started to compete with other values.
This research group aims to explore the relations between human rights and
protocols and to provide guidelines to inform future protocol development and
