Prior Year(s):

The Second IEEE LCN Workshop on
Network Measurements  

To be held in conjunction with The 32nd IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN 2007) October 15-18, 2007

Dublin, Ireland

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.

The first  IEEE LCN Workshop on Network Measurements was very successful in bringing together a set of participants actively working on network measurements in various domains. This year we will continue with the theme “Network Measurements – Different Perspectives,” to further promote the exchange of knowledge among different network measurement domains.

Topics of Interest:

Network measurements are crucial for operation, diagnosis, and characterization of complex networks. Accurate characterization is important for understanding the behavior of networks and for evaluating the scalability, reliability and performance of protocols. Measurements in wired and wireless domains, and end-to-end and subnet measurements face domain specific constraints while sharing common objectives. Complex dynamics of the networks and also the difficulties in performing measurement itself pose many challenges. This workshop will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in network measurements to discuss and exchange measurement related research in both wireless and wired domains, and also explore emerging fields of measurements such as on mobile devices.

High quality, previously unpublished work is solicited on the topics including, but not limited to: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 data sets
  • Measurements on Mobile devices

Paper length should not exceed 8 pages. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format via EDAS (Please refer to conference website for detailed submission instructions). 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.
