Named Data Networking (NDN) Project Newsletter for Jan-May 2018

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 at http://www.named-data.net/. 


* The next Named Data Networking Community Meeting (NDNcomm) will be hosted
  by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on September
  19 and 20, 2018 at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD. Registration is now open 
  until September 12, 2018. For more information see 

* We will be discussing NDN at the "Workshop on Information Centric
  Networking Solutions For Real World Applications (ICN-SRA)" at
  IEEE ICC on May 20-240, 2018 in Kansas City, MO.  For information
  about the program, see

* We held the 5th NDN Hackathon on December 16-17, 2017 at the University of 
  California, Los Angeles, CA. For more information about the projects and 
  their outcomes, please see http://5th-ndn-hackathon.named-data.net/.

* We held the 6th NDN Hackathon on May 12-13, 2018 at Florida National 
  University.  For more information about the projects and their outcomes, 
  please see http://6th-ndn-hackathon.named-data.net for details.


* We released version 0.6.2 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/0.6.2/
    - http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-cxx/0.6.2/

* We released version 0.4.3 of Named-data Link State Routing Protocol
  (NLSR).  Detailed release notes can be found at
  Tutorials, installation and configuration guides, and other useful
  resources available on the official web page of NLSR:
