First ANRP Award of 2013 Presented
Ms. Gonca Gürsun, a PhD student from Boston University, was presented with the first Applied Networking Research Prize of 2013 during the Internet Research Task Force open meeting in Orlando as part of the IETF86 meeting. Gonca was recognised for defining a metric that allows an analysis of BGP routing policies (Gonca Gürsun, Natali Ruchansky, Evimaria Terzi and Mark Crovella. Routing State Distance: A Path-based Metric For Network Analysis. Proc. ACM IMC, Boston, MA, USA, Nov. 2012. http://cs-people.bu.edu/goncag/papers/imc12-rsd.pdf)
Nominations for ANRP 2014 will open in the second half of 2013.
Winners Of 2012 ANRP Award Announced
The latest winners of the 2012 Applied Networking Research Prize have been announced, with Srikanth Sundaresan and Peyman Kazemian being chosen as winners, after Albert Dainotti was awarded the first of the three prizes in July.
Mr. Sundaresan receives the award for his measurement study of access link performance on home gateway devices
. Mr Kazemian was recognized for developing a general and protocol-agnostic framework for statically checking network specifications and configurations (Download the article
). Both winners will present the findings of their research at IETF 85 taking place in November.
Mr. Dainotti, the first winner announced this year, received his award for work on Internet communication disruptions in Egypt and Libya in early 2011, during the period of what would become known as the Arab Spring.

About the ANRP
The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) recognizes the best new ideas in networking, and bring them to the IETF and IRTF especially in cases where they would not otherwise see much exposure or discussion.
The ANRP is awarded for recent results in applied networking research that are relevant for transitioning into shipping Internet products and related standardization efforts. Researchers with relevant, recently published results are encouraged to apply for this prize, which will offer them the opportunity to present and discuss their work with the engineers, network operators, policy makers and scientists that participate in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
and its research arm, the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF)
Third-party nominations for this prize are also encouraged.
The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) consists of:
Cash prize of $500 (USD)
Invitation to talk at the IRTF Open Meeting
Travel grant to attend the week-long IETF meeting (airfare, hotel, registration, stipend)
Recognition at the IETF plenary
Invitation to related social activities
Potential for additional travel grants to future IETF meetings, based on community feedback
The Applied Networking Research Prize will be awarded three times per year, in conjunction with the three annual IETF meetings.
The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) is supported by the Internet Society, as part of its Internet Research Awards Programme, in coordination with the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF).
