Call For Papers

Passive and Active Measurements Conference

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, and are particularly encouraged.

Original papers are invited, but not limited to the following topics:

  • Passive and active measurement tools: techniques, design and experience.
  • Characterization studies of network usage, or end-host behavior.
  • Application-layer measurements: e.g., social networks or game performance.
  • Measurements of protocol behavior: e.g., DNS, DHCP, or routing protocols.
  • Network measurements for troubleshooting and anomaly detection.
  • Measurements related to network security and privacy.
  • Measurements of data centers, cloud services and content distribution.
  • Metrics and measurements of resilience and dependability.
  • Measurement of end-user performance and quality of experience.
  • Management and operation of distributed measurement infrastructures.
  • Techniques for measurements and measurement-based inference of macroscopic
  • Internet structure, dynamics, and evolution.
  • Management and visualization of measurement data.
  • New measurement initiatives.
  • Measurement analysis techniques: e.g., traffic classification.
  • Modeling of network measurement.
  • Correlation of measurements across multiple layers, protocols or networks.
  • Internet-oriented wireless and mobility measurements.

All accepted papers will be printed in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
