ACM ICN 2020 is a single-track conference focusing on significant research contributions to ICN as broadly defined, and featuring paper presentations, posters, and demonstrations.

ICN deals with all aspects of an information- or data-centric approach toward supporting networked applications. Such an approach treats digital objects (i.e., collections of bits) as first-class objects, and supports identification, creation, retrieval, authentication, and access control for such objects through a global service.

ACM ICN 2020 solicits research contributions across the full spectrum of technologies and architectures related to ICN, including work that advances core ICN concepts, architectures, technologies, and capabilities; extends current ICN concepts to new networking environments and use cases; realizes, demonstrates, and quantifies the benefits of ICN in traditional and emerging application domains; and catalyzes, incentivizes, simplifies, and supports ICN deployments in realistic, operational environments and settings.

Call for Papers

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Development, refinement, and extension of existing ICN architectures;
  • Design and implementation of global and local information-centric approaches, including named-data, publish-subscribe, and distribution-oriented systems
  • Global routing, forwarding, and caching for information-centric networks
  • Feature advancement of ICN including policing, QoS, multimedia transport, and adaptive network functions
  • ICN implementation approaches based on software-defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), or other emerging technologies
  • Experiences with application of information-centric networking and computation in various domains such as Internet-of-things, personal communications, public content distribution/exchange, etc.
  • Information-centric networking as an approach in mobile or constrained environments including 5G and network slicing, vehicular networking, autonomous driving, and machine-to-machine communication
  • Information-centric solutions for integrating big data platforms and machine learning frameworks
  • AI/ML techniques to support ICN networks management
  • Approaches to coexistence/evolution of information-centric and host-centric networking, including IP-based protocols in support of information-centric operations
  • Virtualization, operation, and orchestration of named network resources including forwarding, storage, computation, and the distributed Web
  • Platforms allowing specification of computations on data, and orchestration of such computations, including named computing functions at the network edge
  • Software design and architectures to support ICN including testing and verification
  • Information-centric network management including zero-conf bootstrapping
  • Measurement and analysis of protocols, applications, and infrastructure for distribution of named content
  • Security services including confidentiality and access control, authentication, and non-repudiation, as well as infrastructure resilience
  • Privacy of consumers and producers of content objects
  • Namespace management approaches, case studies, and empirical evaluation campaigns
  • Incentives, money flow, and other sociotechnical aspects of information-centric networking.
