The First IEEE LCN Workshop on
Network Measurements  

Tampa, Florida

To be held in conjunction with The 31st Annual IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN 2006) November 14-17, 2006.

The LCN International Workshop on Network Measurements, will be held in conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN). The workshop will include papers and panels dealing with latest advances and challenges facing the  field. The expected audience will include networking researchers, practitioners, scientists and engineers   from industry, academia and government.

Topics of Interest:

Network measurements are crucial for operation, diagnosis, and characterization of complex networks. Accurate characterization is important for understanding the behaviour of networks and as well as for evaluating the scalability, reliability and performance of protocols. Measurements in wired and wireless domains as well as end-to-end and subnet measurements have received significant attention. Multiple challenges exist in these areas due to complex dynamics of the networks and also the difficulties in performing measurement itself. Wireless domain poses interesting research problems due to the external factors such as environment, while the broadcast nature of the medium allows for passive monitoring of the network. This workshop will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in network measurements to discuss latest advances in the field.

High quality, previously unpublished work is solicited on the topics including, but not limited to:

  • Measurements on homogenous and heterogeneous networks
  • Physical layer characteristics and measurements for wireless networks
  • Implementation and operational challenges of wireless testbeds
  • Mobility models and traffic patterns
  • Wired and wireless domain measurements
  • Measurement tools
  • Bandwidth, capacity and delay estimation
  • Active and passive measurements at core nodes
  • End-to-end and/or application-level measurements over the Internet
  • Metrics for network characterization
  • Benchmark scenarios and results
Paper length should not exceed 10 pages. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format via EDAS.  Papers will go through a thorough review process. The accepted papers will appear in the IEEE LCN conference proceedings.  

Proposals for panel sessions are also invited. Please send the proposal by the same deadline as for papers.
