Fifty-three attendees met at the University of Florence from June 17-21 for the 11th annual Workshop on ns-3, ns-3 training sessions, and Workshop on Next-Generation Wireless Networks with ns–3. The meeting was organized by the ns-3 Consortium, which held its annual plenary meeting on June 20. The Workshop on ns-3 featured ten paper presentations and several demo, poster, and work-in-progress talks on Wednesday, at which a team from University of Padova accepted the award for best paper regarding a QUIC module for ns-3. Next year’s annual meeting is planned for North America (site and date TBD).
We are pleased to announce that four students will join the ns-3 project for the 2019 Google Summer of Code! Congratulations to those students selected, and thank you to the selection committee and especially to our volunteer mentors who will be overseeing the projects.
The ns-3 project has been selected to participate in the 2019 edition of the European Space Agency (ESA) Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS) program. This marks the sixth year that ns-3 has been selected for SOCIS. Eligible students may apply by May 4 to one of three space networking projects; more information is found on the ns-3 SOCIS page.
