ATLANTA, MARCH 20-22, 2011

Call for Papers

The 12th Passive and Active Measurement conference will be held March 20-22nd, 2011 in Atlanta. PAM focuses on research and practical applications of network measurement and analysis techniques. The conference's goal is to provide a forum for current work in its early stages. Original papers are invited from the research and operations communities on topics including, but not limited to:

  • Active Network Measurements
  • Passive Network Measurements
  • Performance Metrics
  • Traffic Statistics
  • Measurement Visualization
  • New Measurement Approaches & Techniques
  • Deployment of Measurement Infrastructure
  • New Measurement Initiatives
  • Applications of Network Measurements
  • Network Measurements and Security
  • Network Troubleshooting using Measurements
  • Reproduce (or Refute) Previous Measurement Results

The PAM steering committee believes that releasing measurement data allows for better science to be conducted in the field of network measurement. Therefore, an award will be given at PAM 2011 for the best paper based on a new dataset that the authors are releasing for community use in subsequent research. To qualify, a paper must significantly utilize a dataset that has been collected for the work presented in the paper. Further, the dataset must be freely available to any researcher; wireless data sets may, for instance, be published through CRAWDAD. Authors should flag papers they wish to be considered for this award with a footnote on the first page of the paper. Novel datasets are especially encouraged. The awarded paper will be chosen from the set of qualifying papers accepted for the conference by a committee made up of a subset of the program and steering committees.
