  • Proposed response to meeting venue consultations and the complex issues raised

    The IETF Administration LLC recently sought feedback from the community on the possibility of holding an IETF Meeting in the cities of Beijing, Istanbul, Kuala Lumpur and Shenzhen, with received feedback including views that were well expressed and well argued but strongly conflicting. The IETF LLC has considered this feedback in-depth and now seeks community feedback on its proposed response.

    Applied Networking Research Prize presentations at IETF 104

    • Colin PerkinsIRTF Chair

    27 May 2019

    Presentations by recent winners of the Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) were a highlight the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) Open session at IETF 104.

    The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) is awarded each year for recent results in applied networking research that are relevant for transitioning into shipping Internet products and related standardization efforts. Prize winners are offered the opportunity to participate in the IETF, and in particular to present and discuss their work with the engineers, network operators, policy makers, and scientists at an IETF meeting. Presentations by Arash Molavi Kakhki on work to evaluate QUIC; by Brandon Schlinker on a global, SDN-based traffic engineering system; and by Florian Streibelt on work showing how BGP communities can be exploited by remote parties to influence Internet routing were featured at IETF 104.

    Kakhi’s presentation was based on the paper “Taking a Long Look at QUIC: An Approach for Rigorous Evaluation of Rapidly Evolving Transport Protocols”, which was previously submitted to the 17th Internet Measurement Conference (IMC ’17) in November 2017. Streibelt presented on the paper “BGP Communities: Even more Worms in the Routing Can”, which was also presented at the Internet Measurement Conference 2018 (IMC ‘18) in November 2018. Schlinker discussed how Facebook uses an SDN-based traffic engineering system at the edge of their network to deliver content to over two billion users. This work, which includes real-time performance measurements to guide selection of BGP routes, was previously described in “Engineering Egress with Edge Fabric: Steering Oceans of Content to the World” and presented at the Conference of the ACM Special Interest Group on Data Communication (SIGCOMM ‘17) in August 2017.

    A goal of the ANRP is to recognize the best new ideas in networking and provide them with greater visibility with the IETF and IRTF communities. A recording of the ANRP presentations at IETF 104 is now available. Complementary to the ANRP’s goals, registration will open shortly for the Applied Networking Research Workshop, which will be held on 22 July 2019, co-located with the IETF 105 meeting. The ANRW offers an opportunity for academics to transition research back into IETF standards and protocols and to find inspiration from topics and open problems discussed within the IETF.
