Dagstuhl Seminar ICN 3

13. - 16.07.2014


Matthias Wählisch was invited to attend the Dagstuhl Seminar Information-Centric Networking 3.

Information-­centric networking (ICN) is a communication paradigm where the basis for communication is named data. Instead of using endpoints to define communication (one device talking to another), ICN relies on asking for pieces of information by name independently of location.This seminar will focus on two key aspects to ICN success, scalability and deployment.

We are working on ICN in different fields, for example
