TRAC 2016 -- 7th International Workshop on TRaffic Analysis and Characterization
Technically Sponsored by IEEE
September 5-9 2015
Coral Beach Hotel, Paphos, Cyprus


The continued evolution of the Internet is characterized by dramatic changes in the way users behave, interact with and use the network. Today's Internet content and applications are increasingly delivered by ever larger content delivery networks (CDNs) and cloud infrastructures. The sheer development of novel end-user apps and multimedia services demands more and better user centric quality concepts and metrics applied to real world operational networks.

Other changes in the Internet, such as the explosion of mobile traffic and the growing deployment of encryption (e.g. HTTPS Everywhere) demand new approaches for characterizing and analyzing network traffic. Malicious and abusive traffic continues to evolve as well, and techniques for detection must evolve in kind.

The seventh edition of the TRAC workshop continues to serve as a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to exchange and discuss their experiences and research results about all aspects of traffic classification, characterization, and analysis.


The workshop is soliciting high quality papers discussing original and innovative experimental activities, unpublished and not currently submitted for publication elsewhere, on topics including (but not limited) to the following:

* Traffic analysis and characterization algorithms and techniques
* Detection, analysis, and classification of network anomalies
* Platforms for on-line, real-time traffic analysis and characterization
* Evaluation of traffic classification and analysis techniques
* Data-reduction techniques for traffic analysis and visualization
* Privacy-preservation in traffic analysis, classification, and characterization
* Effects of anonymization on traffic analysis, classification, and characterization
* Identification and classification of encrypted traffic
* QoE-based traffic analysis and characterization
* Advanced algorithms for deep packet inspection
* Big data frameworks for traffic analysis
* Post-DPI approaches for traffic classification
* Applications of traffic analysis to network security
* Traffic analysis studies on operational networks and large-scale traffic data sets
* Applications of traffic analysis to network operations and management
* Ultra-high rate traffic analysis, classification, and characterization
* Analysis and characterization of mobile and wireless traffic
* Forwarding-plane support for network measurement and analysis


Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers using the EDAS system. Submitted papers must be no longer than six (6) IEEE style pages including results, figures and references. Papers will be reviewed by the standard reviewing procedure. Accepted papers will be published on the IEEE Xplore Digital Library
