The ACM/IRTF Applied Networking Research Workshop 2020 (ANRW’20) 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, and to find inspiration from topics and open problems discussed at the IETF. The workshop will consist of a mix of invited talks, submitted talks, and submitted short papers.

ANRW ’20 particularly encourages the submission of results that could form the basis for future engineering work in the IETF, that could help better specify Internet protocols, that could change operational Internet practices, or that could influence further research and experimentation in the IRTF. ANRW ‘20 is sponsored by ACM SIGCOMM, and the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF).

The ANRW ’20 will be an online workshop, running from July 30-31, 2020.

The ANRW 20 was originally scheduled to co-locate with the IETF-108 meeting in Madrid, Spain, on July 27, 2020. However, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, both the IETF 108 and the ANRW will now be online only events.
