Facebook announces new networking systems research awards

Networking is fundamental to today’s large-scale distributed systems that power the family of Facebook applications used by billions of people. At Facebook, we focus on making networking technology more flexible and scalable by rethinking traditional approaches and designs, and collaborating with research and open source communities to develop an ecosystem of open hardware and software.

Continuing the success of last year’s Communications & Networking research awards, Facebook has launched another research award opportunity to foster further innovation in networking and to deepen our collaboration with academia.

This year, we are interested in proposals that fall into the following two categories:

  • Improving network efficiency with intelligent control, such as traffic engineering, routing, cache management, and congestion control.
  • Enhancing programmable switches and their applications, such as troubleshooting, hardware acceleration, and new routing protocols.

We anticipate awarding six awards, each in the $50,000 range.

Visit the networking systems research awards page to apply and for information about eligibility, timing and dates, and what proposals should include. The application deadline is June 7, 2019.
