The ACM, IRTF & ISOC Applied Networking Research Workshop 2018 (ANRW’18) is an 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. Our other goal is to create a path for academics to transition research back into the IETF standards and protocols and for academics to find inspiration from topics and open problems addressed at the IETF.

We are particularly interested in topics that focus on wide-area networks and network security, but applied networking topics outside of these focus areas are also welcome.

The ANRW ’18 takes place in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, the venue of the IETF-102 meeting, on Monday, July 16, 2018.
