Applied Networking Research Workshop 2023 Review

More than 250 participants gathered online and in person for ANRW 2023, the academic workshop that provides a forum for researchers, vendors, network operators, and the Internet standards community to present and discuss emerging results in applied networking research.
The 2023 ACM/IRTF Applied Networking Research Workshop (ANRW ’23) was co-located with the IETF 117 meeting in San Francisco on 24 July 2023. The program included novel research work taking inspiration from topics and open problems discussed in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), along with a keynote presentation, a panel, and some spirited discussions.
The workshop received 21 paper submissions of which 11 were accepted for presentation at the workshop and publication in the ACM Digital Library. The accepted papers were on topics as diverse as programmable network infrastructure, mapping Ukrainian refugees using Internet measurements, and new opportunities for security and privacy research with potential impacts on the IETF.
All the presentations, including the keynote by Philip Levis (Stanford) on “It's the End of DRAM As We Know It”, and the panel discussion with Lixia Zhang (UCLA), Christopher A. Wood (Cloudflare) and Jörg Ott (Technical University of Munich) on “What do we want the Internet to look like in 20 years?”, sparked engaged and interesting discussions among the participants.
Thanks to Akamai and Comcast for sponsoring student travel grants to attend the workshop, and to Netflix for supporting diversity travel grants to bring under-represented groups to IRTF events, including ANRW, we were able to bring a significant number of new participants to the meeting.
Finally, it’s not too early to start thinking about next year’s workshop, ANRW ’24, which will take place at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, co-locating with the IETF 120 meeting scheduled for 20-26 July 2024. ANRW '24 is chaired by Simone Ferlin and Ignacio Castro – keep an eye out for the call for papers in the coming months.
