ACM ICN 2021, Paris, France

8th ACM Conference on Information-Centric Networking (ICN 2021), Sept. 22–24, 2021

Welcome to 8th Annual ACM ICN 2021 Conference!

The organizing committee is delighted to invite you to ACM ICN 2021, to be held virtually in September 22–24, 2021.

The fundamental concept in Information-Centric Networking (ICN) is to provide accessing named data as a principal network service, evolving the Internet from today’s host based packet delivery towards directly retrieving information objects by names in a secure, reliable, scalable, and efficient way. These architectural design efforts aim to directly address the challenges that arise from the increasing demands for highly scalable content distribution, from accelerated growths of mobile devices, from wide deployment of Internet-of-things (IoT), and from the need to secure the global Internet. ACM ICN 2021 will be a single track conference focusing on current ICN research topics, featuring paper presentations and demonstrations.

The program comprises top-quality content demonstrating the scope of ICN research with eleven (11) papers, eight (8) posters and one (1) demo. A half-day tutorial prior to the main conference will introduce trust schemas for easily and securely deploying NDN applications. The program also features an engaging keynote speech delivered by Geoff Huston (APNIC) and is complemented by two panels of experts on Internet of Things and security related topics.
