CAIDA to Host Inaugural BGP Hackathon

If you’re a researcher interested in the mechanics and dynamics of the Internet routing system, please consider joining some of the world’s top Internet measurement researchers in San Diego next year for the CAIDA BGP Hackathon 2016. The event will take place on the weekend of February 6th and 7th, 2016, and will bring researchers and students from around the world together to develop tools to model, measure, and monitor the routing infrastructure of the Internet.

Participating teams will work on “challenges” that extend, integrate, and demonstrate the utility of BGP data sources and tools for understanding or solving practical problems (e.g., detecting BGP prefix hijacking, evaluating anycast performance, effectively visualizing phenomena). This is just the kind of work needed to help improve the security and resilience of the Internet’s routing infrastructure.

The hackathon will be held in San Diego the weekend immediately preceding the NANOG conference and the AIMS Workshop on Active Internet Measurements.

The Internet Society is supporting the event and I’ll be one of the judges, so I’d love to see you there! Here’s how to Apply to Participate!
