ACM ICN 2019

Sep 24, 2019 - Sep 26, 2019

We present three papers and three demos at ACM ICN 2019, sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM. Furthermore, Prof. Wählisch is part of the organizer committee.

ACM ICN 2019 is a single-track conference focusing on significant research contributions to ICN as broadly defined, and featuring paper presentations, posters, and demonstrations.

The fundamental concept of Information Centric Networking (ICN) is to provide the ability to access, manage, and manipulate named entities as a principal service offered by the network, evolving the emphasis of network architecture and technology from today’s packet-level delivery functions towards directly retrieving information objects and invoking services by name in a secure, resilient, scalable, and efficient way.

This architectural re-conception of networking aims to address the challenges that arise from, among other forces, the dramatic growth of mobile devices and edge computing, the emergence and wide deployment of Internet-of-things (IoT) technologies, rapidly increasing demand for cloud computing services and resources, and the continuing need to scale, stabilize, and secure the global Internet.

Previous successful research results have brought Information-Centric Networking concepts from early-stage academic effort to an increasingly sophisticated level of intellectual, technical, and practical maturity, offering the real promise of dramatic and tangible impact across the broad field of networking in the foreseeable future.

ACM ICN 2019 solicits research contributions across the full spectrum of objectives motivated by this observation, including work that advances core ICN concepts, technologies, and capabilities; extends current ICN concepts to new networking environments and use cases; realizes, demonstrates, and quantifies the benefits of ICN in traditional and emerging application domains; and catalyzes, incentivizes, simplifies, and supports ICN deployments in realistic, operational environments and settings.
