By Mat FordTechnology Program Manager

The latest recipients of the Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) for 2015 are Haya Shulman and João Luís Sobrinho. Shulman won her award for analyzing the deficiencies of different approaches to DNS privacy. You can read the full paper at https://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/dns-privacy/current/pdfWqAIUmEl47.pdf.

Sobrinho and his co-authors won their award for designing a route-aggregation technique that allows filtering while respecting routing policies. You can read the full paper at http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~jrex/papers/dragon14.pdf.

Shulman and Sobrinho have been invited to present their findings to the Internet Research Task Force open meeting during IETF 93 in July in Prague, Czech Republic. Remote participation details and the exact timing of their presentations will be available at https://www.ietf.org/meeting/93/index.html in due course.

For the 2015 award period of the ANRP, 33 eligible nominations were received. Each submission was reviewed by 3-5 members of the selection committee according to a diverse set of criteria, including scientific excellence and substance, timeliness, relevance, and potential impact on the Internet. Based on this review, five submissions will be awarded prizes in 2015. The first ANRP award for 2015 was given to Aaron Gember-Jacobson.

Nominations for the 2016 ANRP awards is now open. Nominations can be submitted until 31 October 2015 via the ANRP submission site. You can also read more about the awards and how to nominate.
