The 7th IEEE Workshop on Network Measurements (WNM) invites participants actively engaged in all aspects of network measurements. As computer networks are becoming more complex and diverse in terms of architecture, services, and devices, the importance of measurement increases. Network measurements are crucial for operation, diagnosis, and characterization of complex networks, especially emerging and fast-growing ones, such as broadband wireless, mobile, home, data centers, WSN and various heterogeneous networks ("Hetnets").

Operators of fast-growing non-traditional networks are facing new challenges as cross-layer interactions of traditional protocols exhibit new behaviors. With emerging cloud, over-the-top and mobile services and applications, performance monitoring, anomaly detection and diagnosis becomes more difficult. In addition, fully understanding the impact of new services and applications on existing traditional networks is needed for planning and provisioning purposes. Inferring user experience from network measurements has been a long-standing challenge, which remains with cloud and mobile services growing.

With rapid evolution of networking technologies and architectures, the measurement community can offer invaluable insights and improve understanding where lacking, especially in cases where validation of existing results is needed.

WNM is seeking original submissions that cover a broad range of topics in monitoring, measurement and analysis across wired and wireless networks:

  • Measurement tools, techniques, design, and evaluation
  • Evaluation of Internet and smart-phone applications
  • Measurement across the network protocol stack
  • Measurement related to performance, reliability, security and privacy
  • Data centers, cloud-based services and content distribution networks
  • Measurement-based monitoring and troubleshooting of large-scale distributed systems, including cloud infrastructures
  • Monitoring and measurement of home networks
  • Network and service resiliency and performance during and after disasters and man-made outages natural
  • Evaluation of emerging paradigms for traditional services (e.g. moving from circuit-switched phone to VoIP)
  • Design, development and experiences with Big Data platforms and analytics
  • Assessment of previous measurement works
