Named Data Networking (NDN) Project Newsletter for October/November 2016

The NDN project team compiles and publishes this newsletter periodically
to inform the community about recent activities, technical news,
meetings, publications, presentations, code releases, and upcoming
events. You can find these newsletters posted on the Named Data
Networking Project blog.


* We will host our next NDNcomm at the University of Memphis March
  23-24, 2017 immediately preceding IETF 98 in Chicago. We will
  hold the 4th NDN Hackathon immediately following NDNcomm on 25-26
  March, 2017. You can find details regarding the meeting, travel
  grants, and accomodations at http://www.caida.org/workshops/ndn/1703/

* Coming up in December 2016, adjacent to IEEE Globecom 2016 at the
  Workshop on Information Centric Networking Solutions for Real
  World Applications (ICNSRA 2016) in Washington D.C., the NDN team
  will present a publication (listed below) as well as participate
  on a panel discussing "Application of ICN in Infrastructure-Free
  Environments: Rural Areas, Disaster Recovery, and Military Tactical
  Environments.  See more details at 

* On the heels of our recent NDN Retreat, we held the 3rd Named
  Data Networking (NDN) Hackathon November 4-5th, Colorado State
  University, Fort Collins, CO. See which projects took home the
  coveted Quadcopter Mini Drones at


* We released the NDN Platform version 0.5.0 with updates to
  NFD, ndn-cxx version 0.5.0, the latest Common Client Library
  releases, and updates to NLSR and Mini-NDN.  For details and links
  to the packages, please see:

* We released version 0.5.0 of Named Data Networking Forwarding
  Daemon (NFD) and ndn-cxx library.

  Please find detailed release notes:
    - NFD: http://named-data.net/doc/NFD/0.5.0-rc1/RELEASE_NOTES.html
    - ndn-cxx library: http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-cxx/0.5.0-rc1/RELEASE_NOTES.html

  More details about NFD, source code, install instructions,
  tutorials, HOWTOs, a FAQ and other useful resources are available
  on the official webpages of NFD and ndn-cxx:

    - http://named-data.net/doc/NFD/0.5.0/

* We released the NDN Python library PyNDN version v2.4beta1.
  with support for the ImplicitSha256Digest Name component.

* We released the NDN Java library jNDN version v0.14 
  with support for the ImplicitSha256Digest Name component.

* We released the NDN JavaScript library NDN-JS version v0.12.0.
  with support for the ImplicitSha256Digest Name component.

  It also includes experimental updates to the Micro Forwarder to support multicast on the local LAN.

* As part of the Enterprise Building Automation & Management
  activities UCLA began publishing live building monitoring system data
  to a repository accessible on the testbed. Researchers
  interested in using the data for experiments should contact 
  Zhehao @ REMAP for more information on the data and namespace.


* Wentao Shang, Alexander Afanasyev, and Lixia Zhang, "The Design
  and Implementation of the NDN Protocol Stack for RIOT-OS" to be
  presented at GLOBECOM Workshop on Information Centric Networking
  Solutions for Real World Applications, December 2016.

* NDN TR-28 Revision 2: Spyridon Mastorakis, Alexander Afanasyev,
  Ilya Moiseenko, and Lixia Zhang, "ndnSIM 2: An updated NDN simulator
  for NS-3" to match the simulation platform to the latest advancements
  of NDN research. It uses the ndn-cxx library (NDN C++ library
  with eXperimental eXtensions) and the NDN Forwarding Daemon (NFD)
  to enable experiments with real code in a simulation environment.


* The NDN seminars are internally focused. If you would like to
  participate in the NDN Seminars, please contact the PoC, UCLA
  PhD. candidate Spyridon Mastorakis <Spiros.mastorakis at gmail.com>
  for the most up-to-date information regarding upcoming seminars.
