PAM2005, the sixth 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:
  • 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
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 PAM2005 is fresh and interesting, we are soliciting extended abstracts in the first instance. These should be at most FOUR pages in length in the standard IEEE double-column format and a 11 point font. The abstracts should 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 3.5 months between the abstract submission and camera ready deadlines.
If selected for publication, authors will be expected to produce an 8-10 page paper including results and validation.
