PAM seeks to bring together both the network research and operations
communities to consider network measurement and analysis techniques,
particularly those in the earlier stages of research.
PAM has in the past focused on research and practical applications of
network measurement at Layer-3. However, in the last 2 years PAM
broadened its scope to encompass measurements of networked
applications, content distribution networks, online social networks,
overlay networks, and more. Measurement technology is needed at all
layers of the stack: for power profiling of hardware components; at
the MAC/network/transport layers; as well as up the stack for
application profiling and even to collect user feedback. Measurement
technologies are being designed for the digital home, residential
access networks, wireless and mobile access, enterprise, ISP and data
PAM continues to encourage a broad range of submissions across these
recently important topics. We aim to understand the role that
measurement techniques can play in networked environments and
applications, across different layers, and how they can serve as
critical building blocks for broader measurement needs. At the same
time, PAM also continues with its original goal, to expand the
techniques, tools and practical uses of network measurement
Original papers are invited, but not limited to, the following topics:
* Passive and active measurement tools: techniques, design and experience.
* Characterization studies of network usage, or end-host behavior.
* Application-layer measurements: e.g., social networks or game performance.
* Measurements of protocol behavior: e.g., DNS, DHCP, or routing protocols.
* Network measurements for troubleshooting and anomaly detection.
* Measurements related to network security and privacy.
* Measurements of data centers, cloud services and content distribution.
* Metrics and measurements of resilience and dependability.
* Measurement of end-user performance and quality of experience.
* Management and operation of distributed measurement infrastructures.
* Techniques for measurements and measurement-based inference of
macroscopic Internet structure, dynamics, and evolution.
* Management and visualization of measurement data.
* New measurement initiatives.
* Measurement analysis techniques: e.g., traffic classification.
* Modeling of network measurement.
* Correlation of measurements across multiple layers, protocols or networks.
* Internet-oriented wireless and mobility measurements.
Although PAM traditionally attracts work that is at an early stage,
works that are a reappraisal or independent validation of previous
results, or which enhance the reproducibility of network measurement
research, for instance by publishing new datasets on an existing
topic, are explicitly included in PAM's ambit, and are particularly
Paper submissions are limited to 10 pages, see the conference website
