On the weekend of February 6th and 7th, 2016, researchers and students from different institutions around the world are invited to gather and participate in the first CAIDA BGP Hackathon at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego in La Jolla, CA. The hackathon is sponsored by industry, professional organizations, and government agencies, with interest in promoting the development of tools to model, measure, and monitor the routing infrastructure of the Internet. Application does not guarantee participation. There is no application fee, and no participation fee. Application to participate in the first BGP Hackathon is closed as of January 11, 2016. Due to the overwhelming interest in the hackathon, we have reached capacity for the hackathon. We are no longer accepting applications for this year’s hackathon. The event is scheduled just before NANOG 66 in San Diego. The hackathon also precedes the CAIDA AIMS workshop, which will also be held at the San Diego Supercomputer Center on the UC San Diego campus.
On November 12-13th, researchers from different institutions gathered at the University of California San Diego in La Jolla, CA to plan for a BGP Hackathon in February 2016. The goal of this meeting was to get the organizing committee together to set internal timelines and draft project challenges for participants in the upcoming workshop. The meeting is by invite only, limited to the organization committee members.
