The organizing committee is excited to invite you to take
part in the 13th Passive and Active Measurement conference will be held
March 13-14th, 2012 in Vienna, Austria at Forschungszentrum
This year PAM is co-located with the COST Traffic Monitoring and Analysis (TMA) workshop, which will take place one day before the beginning of the conference on March 12th.
The PAM conference has in the past focused on research and
practical applications of network measurement and analysis techniques.
However this year PAM is broadening its scope based upon numerous
trends in this area. The scope of network measurements today goes well
beyond the traditional Layer-3 and encompasses measurements in any type
of networked environment, networked applications, content distribution
networks, online social networks, overlay networks, and more.
Measurement technology is needed at all layers of the stack: for power
profiling of hardware components, at the MAC/network/transport layers,
as well as up the stack for application profiling and even to collect
user feedback. Measurements technologies are being designed for the
digital home, residential access networks, wireless and mobile access,
enterprise, ISP and data center networks. In recognition of these
trends, PAM is encouraging submission on a broad set of topics. We aim
to understand the role that measurement techniques can play in
networked environments and applications, across different l ayers, and
how they can serve as critical building blocks for broader measurement
needs. At the same time, PAM also continues with its original goal, to
expand the techniques, tools and practical uses of network measurement
technology. PAM seeks to bring together both the research and operation
communities, and encourages submission of early stage research.
