  • Impressions from the Internet Architecture Board E-Impact Workshop

    The IAB ran an online workshop in December 2022 to begin to explore and understand the environmental impacts of the Internet. The discussion was active, and it will take time to summarise and produce the workshop report – but the topic is important, so we wanted to share some early impressions of the outcomes.

Applied Networking Research Prize presentations at IETF 113

  • Grant GrossIETF Blog Reporter

9 Mar 2022

The Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) open session at the IETF 113 meeting will feature presentations on research into events that could cause large-scale Internet outages and potential biases in networking algorithm tests.

ANRP-2022-L

The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) awards recognize the best recent results in applied networking research, interesting new research ideas of potential relevance to the Internet standards community, and people who are likely to have an impact on Internet standards and technologies in the future. The prize focuses on people or ideas that would not otherwise get much exposure or be able to participate in networking discussions.

The IRTF selected seven research papers to receive ANRP awards in 2022. Topics covered include the effect of solar superstorms on the Internet, the risks related to registrar name management, and human rights advocacy at the Internet Engineering Task Force. Two winners of the awards will present during IETF 113 Vienna, with others to present at the IETF 114 Philadelphia and IETF 115 London meetings scheduled later this year.

The award winners presenting during IETF 113 are:

Sangeetha Abdu Jyothi, on her research, “Solar superstorms: planning for an Internet apocalypse,” presented at the ACM SIGCOMM Conference in 2021. Her research looks at the potential of a so-called black swan event in which a solar superstorm could potentially cause large-scale Internet outages covering the entire globe and lasting several months. 

Bruce Spang, Veronica Hannan, Shravya Kunamalla, Te-Yuan Huang, Nick McKeown, and Ramesh Johari, for their research, “Unbiased experiments in congested networks,” presented at the ACM Internet Measurement Conference in 2021. Their research shows that networking algorithm A/B tests can be biased because of network congestion.

A live stream of the session will be available at 13:30 UTC on 22 March.

The ANRP is supported by the Internet Society and the IRTF, and sponsored by Comcast and NBC Universal.
