TMA 2017 : Network Traffic Measurement and Analysis Conference
Conference Series : Traffic Monitoring and Analysis
Call For Papers
We are very excited to announce the new 2017 Network Traffic Measurement and Analysis Conference (TMA 2017).
Sponsored by IEEE and IEEE ComSoc, IFIP, and with the support of ACM Sigcomm for the PhD travel grants.
TMA 2017 is a unification of three successful workshops:
● IFIP/ACM Traffic Monitoring and Analysis Workshop (TMA)
● IEEE Workshop on TRaffic Analysis and Characterization (TRAC)
● IEEE Workshop on Network Measurements (WNM).
The Network Traffic Measurement and Analysis Conference (TMA) is a highly selective venue for the presentation of both early-stage and mature research as well as controversial works on all the aspects of network measurements. The focus is on improving the practice or application of measurements, across the entire network stack up to the application layer, with an emphasis on new areas of network communication such as Software-Defined Networks, Cloud services, Content Distribution Networks, Social Networks, mobile applications and data centers. We also welcome more traditional measurement topics, such as traffic classification, anomaly detection, network performance evaluation and traffic analysis.
The Conference will maintain the tradition of open and lively interaction between scientists and engineers in academia or industry and serve as a premier forum to exchange ideas, present new results and advance the state-of-the-art.
The conference will be co-located with the traditional TMA PhD school, which usually brings more than 30 PhD students who are interested in network measurement and analysis topics, and will bring a vivid contribution to the audience and present their research work in a poster session.
CALL FOR PAPERS
As we witness the explosion of demand for bandwidth and exciting changes in the ways we do networking brought about by SDN, virtualization, cloud, IoT and ubiquitous broadband wireless, we are facing new challenges in measurement and analysis across the entire network stack, from the physical layer up to applications and services in the cloud. TMA 2017 is therefore inviting submissions presenting new ideas, experiences, and results in collection, processing, analysis and presentation of network and traffic data, which may address performance enhancement, monitoring, management, security, privacy or other uses of network data.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Traffic measurement, analysis, characterization, visualization and classification
The use of Big Data, Data Analytics, Data Mining, High-Rate Processing and Data Reduction in network measurement, analysis and visualization
Measurements of data centers or cloud-based systems
Measurements of Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and Virtual Network Functions (VNF)
Measurements of home, mobile and wireless traffic including devices with multiple network paths
Application-layer measurements, including web services, social networks, mobile applications
Measurements of Quality of Service and Quality of Experience, for network services using audio, video, virtual/augmented reality and gaming
Applications of traffic analysis for security, anomaly/vulnerability/attack detection and user profiling/privacy
Identification and classification of traffic, including encrypted and proprietary protocols
Techniques for and implications of privacy preservation, enhancement and anonymization in the context of traffic measurements
Platforms for network performance and topology measurement and troubleshooting, particularly for service quality management and control in operational networks
Current and emerging regulatory frameworks for measurement, analysis and privacy
Measurement of traditional and new protocols (e.g. TCP, MPTCP, HTTP/2, QUIC) and modes of communication (e.g. NFC and IoT)
Validation and repeatability of measurements, shared datasets, collaborative platforms.
