Call for papers
A workshop on passive and active measurement techniques for high speed computer networks and the Internet
University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand
Abstracts due: 15 November 1999
Conference Chair: Professor Ian Graham, University of Waikato
As the Internet has grown over the last decade the need for precise measurement of network traffic has become steadily more apparent; most of today's Internet Service Providers and many of their large network customers are collecting and analysing traffic data for the purposes of performance monitoring, network engineering and cost recovery, but the engineering quality of these measurements vary.
A steadily growing number of research groups have been working in the areas of
One such group is the Waikato Applied Network Dynamics (WAND) group, based at Waikato University in New Zealand. The WAND group will be local host to a workshop to be held in New Zealand early in April 2000, following the IETF meeting in Adelaide.
Papers are invited from the research, provider and any other communities on topics in the areas above, or any other area of network traffic measurement. Papers reporting practical experience of measurement and/or analysis are especially welcome, in particular:
Extended abstracts (about 500 words) must be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 November 1999. Abstracts will be reviewed and acceptance notified by 15 December 1999 or earlier.
Papers, maximum 15 printed pages, must be submitted electronically by 15 February 2000. Details of acceptable paper formats will be published on the conference web site, http://pam2000.cs.waikato.ac.nz.
Equipment and software demonstrations are also welcomed. Proposals for demonstrations should be sent by email to the conference chair at email@example.com by 15 December 1999.
Hamilton is a city of some 100,000 inhabitants, situated 100 kilometres (80 miles) south of New Zealand's largest city, Auckland. The weather in April (our fall in New Zealand) is usually still warm and not too wet.
This workshop follows immediately after the 47th IETF meeting in Adelaide, Australia (March 27-31, 2000). Travel from Adelaide through Auckland to the US is possible with United, Air New Zealand and Qantas (and possibly other airlines). Local travel and tourism can be arranged through the workshop's travel agents in Hamilton; Calder and Lawson, http://www.cnl.co.nz.
The workshop will be held at the Novotel Tainui in Hamilton. Special room rates are available for the conference, and the conference fee will be about $US 150 ($NZ 250). A paper copy of the workshop proceedings is included in the conference fee.
