***     Submit nominations for the 2021 award period of the     ***
***  Applied Networking Research Prize until November 22, 2020  ***
***                                                             ***
***    (Please share this announcement with your colleagues.)   ***

The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) is awarded to recognise the best recent results in applied networking, interesting new research ideas of potential relevance to the Internet standards community, and upcoming people that are likely to have an impact on Internet standards and technologies, with a particular focus on cases where these people or ideas would not otherwise get much exposure or be able to participate in the discussion. 

We encourage nominations of researchers with relevant research results,  interesting ideas, and new perspectives. The award 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). Both self- and third-party nominations for this prize are encouraged.

The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) consists of:

• a cash prize of $1000 (USD)
• an invited talk at the IRTF Open Meeting
• a travel grant to attend a week-long IETF meeting (airfare,
  hotel, registration, stipend - COVID-19 permitting)
• recognition at the IETF plenary
• an invitation to related social activities

In addition, prize winners may be offered additional travel grants to attend future IETF and/or IRTF meetings. Such grants are made at the discretion of the award committee, based on community feedback, engagement with the community, and potential future impact.

Applied Networking Research Prize awards are made once per calendar year. Each year, several winners will be chosen and invited to present their work at one of the three IETF meetings during the following year.


Nominations are for a single author of an original, peer-reviewed, journal, conference or workshop paper that was recently published or accepted for publication. The nominee must be one of the main authors of the nominated paper. Both self-nominations (nominating one’s own paper) and third-party nominations (nominating someone else’s paper) are encouraged.

The nominated paper should provide a scientific foundation for possible future engineering work in the IETF, or research and experimentation in the IRTF. It should analyse the behaviour of Internet protocols in operational deployments or realistic testbeds, make an important contribution to the understanding of Internet scalability, performance, reliability, security or capability, or otherwise be of relevance to ongoing or future IETF or IRTF activities.

Nominations must briefly describe how the nominated paper relates to these goals. They should describe how involving the nominee in the IETF and IRTF process, and bringing them to an IETF meeting, would help to foster the transition of the results and/or ideas into new IETF engineering work or IRTF experimentation, or otherwise seed new activities that will have an impact on the real-world Internet.

The goal of the Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) is to foster the transitioning of research results into real-world benefits for the Internet. Therefore, applicants must indicate that they (or the nominee, in case of third-party nominations) are available to attend at least one of the IETF meetings in the following year. In-person attendance is desirable, where possible, but due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic remote participation options will be available for ANRP prize winners at all IETF meetings in 2021.

Nominations are submitted via https://irtf.org/anrp/ and must include:

• the name and email address of the nominee;
• a bibliographic reference to the published (or accepted) nominated
• a PDF copy of the nominated paper;
• a statement that describes how the nominated paper fulfills the
  goals of the award and how the nominee would engage with the IETF
  and/or IRTF community;
• a statement of the nominees availability to present their work
  at the IETF meetings in during 2021;
• a statement that the nominee accepts that the IRTF Intellectual
  Property Rights disclosure rules will apply to their award talk
  at the IRTF open meeting;
• a brief biography or CV for the nominee; and
• optionally, any other supporting information (link to nominee’s
  web site, etc.)

All nominees will be notified by email about the decision regarding their nomination.

Nominations for the Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) are not considered to be contributions to the IETF or IRTF. However, the invited talks at the IRTF Open Meeting are considered to be contributions and the IRTF Intellectual Property Rights disclosure rules apply.


Applications close: November 22, 2020 (hard)
