Call for Papers, PAM 2018, Berlin, Germany

The Passive and Active Measurement (PAM) conference brings together researchers and operators to discuss novel and emerging work in the area of network measurement and analysis.  

PAM is inclusive of all areas of network measurement, but focuses on systems-based research and real-world data. Indeed, measurement technology is needed at all layers of the network stack, ranging from power profiling of hardware components to virtualization in data centers to application profiling and even user experience.  Work with operational impact or relevance to the broader network research community is especially welcome, as is early and promising measurement technique.  Original contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in the following areas are invited to submit papers:

– Applications, e.g., web, video, games
– Protocols
– Measurement tools and software
– User behavior and experience
– Wireless and mobile
– Network security and privacy
– Topology
– Overlays, e.g., P2P, CDNs
– Visualization
– Social networks
– Data centers and cloud computing
– Virtualization, e.g., SDN, NFV
– Energy
– IoT, e.g., SCADA, ICS, and embedded systems

Although PAM traditionally attracts early stage contributions, works that are a reappraisal or independent validation of previous results, or which enhance the reproducibility of network measurement research, for instance by publishing new datasets on an existing topic, are explicitly included in PAM’s scope.

Important dates:

  •       Paper Registration:  10th October 2017, 8:59:59pm EDT
  •       Paper Submission:  17th October 2017, 8:59:59pm EDT
  •       Notification:  10th December 2017
  •       Camera-ready Due:  15th January 2018

The PAM 2018 conference will take place in Berlin, Germany on March 26 and 27, 2018  (right after IETF in London).
