Named Data Networking (NDN) Project Newsletter for September 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.


* Call for proposals: The 3rd Named Data Networking (NDN) Hackathon
  November 4-5th, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO
  Submission deadline: October 26, 2016
  Acceptance notification: October 31, 2016

* As part of ICN 2016, the NDN Team presented a full-day
  tutorial on "Exploring NDN Research through Real World Problem
  Solving" at the 3rd ACM Conference on Information Centric Networking (ICN 2016). 

* 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 two publications (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.  http://icnsra.nz.comm.waseda.ac.jp/?page_id=61

* Save the date: We have revised our plans to host the next NDNcomm
  at the University of Memphis March 23-24, 2017 immediately preceding
  IETF 97 in Chicago. We will hold the 4th NDN Hackathon immediately
  preceding NDNcomm on 22 March, 2017. Lan Wang and Christos Papadopolous
  will serve as co-chairs.


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

   The detailed release notes:
    - for NFD: http://named-data.net/doc/NFD/0.5.0/RELEASE_NOTES.html
    - for ndn-cxx library: http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-cxx/0.5.0/RELEASE_NOTES.html

   More details about NFD, tutorials, HOWTOs, a FAQ and other useful
   resources are available on official webpages of NFD and ndn-cxx:
    - http://named-data.net/doc/NFD/0.5.0/
    - http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-cxx/0.5.0/

 * The Department of Energy announced that startup Operant Solar is
  a SunShot winner for a project using NDN.  Operant will apply NDN
  for networking in their residential solar panel communications
  system in collaboration with UCLA to build a running prototype.


* NDN TR-21 Revision 7: Alexander Afanasyev, Junxiao Shi, Beichuan
  Zhang, Lixia Zhang, Ilya Moiseenko, Yingdi Yu, Wentao Shang,
  Yanbiao Li, Spyridon Mastorakis, Yi Huang, Jerald Paul Abraham,

  Pesavento, Giulio Grassi, Giovanni Pau, Hang Zhang, Tian Song,
  Haowei Yuan, Hila Ben Abraham, Patrick Crowley, Syed Obaid Amin,
  Vince Lehman, Muktadir Chowdhury, and Lan Wang, "NFD Developer's
  Guide" To help developers extend and improve NFD, this document
  explains NFD's internals including overal design, major modules,
  their implementations, and their interactions.

* As part of an Internet2 Technical Exchange Featured Session , PI
  k claffy presented "A Brief History of a Future Internet: The
  Named Data Networking Architecture," a pre-event webinar streamable at

* We published a new video faq by J. Alex Halderman on security


* 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.

   - 5 October 2016 2pm Wentao Shang (UCLA), "The Design and Implementation of the NDN Protocol Stack for RIOT-OS" 


* NSF CI-NEW: Collaborative: Building the Core NDN Infrastructure
  to Advance Information-Centric Networking Research, $2.5M,
  9/1/2016-8/31/2019.  University of Arizona (Beichuan Zhang, lead),
  UCLA (Jeff Burke, Lixia Zhang), University of Memphis (Lan Wang),
  Washington University at St. Louis (Patrick Crowley).

  The goal of this project is to support the evaluation, experimentation,
  and further development of the Named Data Networking (NDN) architecture
  through building the core NDN infrastructure as a community resource,
  serving to advance research in the Information-Centric Networking
  (ICN) paradigm.

* IEEE Access Journal (Indexed by SCI-E, IF: 1.270) is
  accepting submissions to our Special Section on "Future Networks:
  Architectures, Protocols, and Applications."
