The 5th anuual
Passive & Active Measurement Workshop


Antibes Juan-les-Pins, France
April 19-20, 2004



PAM2004, the fifth PAM workshop, is a two-day event focusing on research and practical applications of passive and active measurement and analysis techniques. Original papers describing novel work in progress are invited from the research, provider, and other communities on topics including, but not limited to: Student participation is strongly encouraged. PAM has a tradition of being a true workshop with lively discussion and active participation from all attendees. As such, we favor submissions reporting exciting on-going work.


To ensure PAM2004 is fresh and interesting, we are soliciting short abstracts in the first instance. These should be at most TWO pages in length and present work in progress, explaining the basic approach and motivation. Comprehensive results are not expected at this stage, although the authors should comment on the results they expect to obtain; there are three months between the abstract submission and camera ready deadlines.

If selected for publication, authors will be expected to produce a TEN page paper including results and validation. Visit the conference web site for further submission information. Abstracts will be reviewed and acceptance notified no later than December 20, 2003.


The workshop will by held in Juan-les-Pins, France. Ideally located between Nice and Cannes, Juan-les-Pins offers one of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the French Riviera. With easy access to a range of water sports and a casino, it is a unique site on the French Riviera.
