The workshop will include an opportunity to exchange research experience, discuss the state of NDN and identify remaining issues. You can come up to speed on NDN, too, by reading the most recent annual report, which recounts activities through April.

As documented in the most recent NDN newsletter, there continues to be a steady stream of published research on the topic, including four papers (on issues ranging from APIs to security to videoconferencing) that have been accepted by the 2nd ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking to be held Sep 30 – Oct 2 in San Francisco.

Members of the NDN Consortium include a collection of universities and businesses, with network vendors such as Cisco, Intel and Juniper being among them. The effort has also been backed by millions in funding from the National Science Foundation.
