Call For Papers

Passive and Active Measurement Conference 2016 (PAM 2016)
31 March - 1 April 2016
Heraklion, Crete, Greece

Call for Papers

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, over the last 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 center networks.

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.

Original papers are invited, but not limited to, the following topics:
* Tools and infrastructure:
- Passive and active measurement tools: techniques, design and experience
- Management and operation of measurement infrastructures
- Management and visualization of measurement data
* Measurements across the stack:
- Application-layer, e.g., social networks, crowdsourcing or gaming
- End user performance and quality of experience
- Protocol behavior: e.g., DNS, DHCP, or routing protocols
- Wireless and mobility
- Correlation of measurements across multiple layers, protocols or networks
* Security and privacy
* Troubleshooting and anomaly detection
* Data centers, cloud services, SDNs and NFV
* Content distribution
* Characterization & modeling
- Studies of network usage, or end-host behavior
- Metrics and measurements of resilience and dependability
- Techniques for measurements and measurement-based inference of macroscopic Internet structure, dynamics, and evolution
