WNM 2010 : IEEE LCN Workshop on Network Measurements
Call For Papers
To be held in conjunction with
35th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN 2010)
October 11-14, 2010
Sheraton Denver Downtown
Denver, Colorado, U.S.A.
The LCN International Workshop on Network Measurements, will be held in conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN). The workshop will include papers and panels dealing with latest advances and challenges facing the field. The expected audience will include networking researchers, practitioners, scientists and engineers from industry, academia and government. LCN registration will cover workshop attendance.
The first four IEEE LCN Workshop on Network Measurements were very successful in bringing together a set of participants actively working on network measurements in various domains. We will continue to address network measurements from different perspectives and different domains.
Topics of Interest
Network measurements are crucial for operation, diagnosis, and characterization of complex networks. Accurate characterization is important for understanding the behavior of networks and for evaluating the scalability, reliability and performance of protocols. Cross-layer designs, and overlay protocols often rely on measurements. Measurements in wired and wireless domains, and end-to-end and subnet measurements face domain specific constraints while sharing common objectives. Complex dynamics of the networks and also the difficulties in performing measurement itself pose many challenges. This workshop will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in network measurements to discuss and exchange measurement related research in both wireless and wired domains, and also explore emerging fields of measurements such as on mobile devices.
High quality, previously unpublished work is solicited on the topics including, but not limited to:
Measurements on homogeneous and heterogeneous networks
Physical layer characteristics and measurements for wireless networks
Implementation and operational challenges of wireless testbeds
Mobility models and traffic patterns
Wired and wireless domain measurements
Measurement tools, benchmarks and data sets
Bandwidth, capacity and delay estimation
Active and passive measurements at core nodes
End-to-end and/or application-level measurements over the Internet
Metrics for network characterization
Measurements on Mobile devices
Applications and protocols relying on network measurements
Paper length should not exceed 8 pages. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format via EDAS. Papers will go through a thorough review process. The accepted papers will appear in the IEEE LCN conference proceedings and also be available via IEEE Xplore.
Proposals for panel sessions are also invited. Please send the proposal by the same deadline as for papers.
