TMA Conference

Network Traffic Measurement and Analysis Conference

The first edition of the TMA Conference was held in Dublin - June 21-23, 2017.



The Network Traffic Measurement and Analysis Conference (TMA) is a highly selective venue for the presentation of both early-stage and mature research as well as controversial works on all the aspects of network measurements. The focus is on improving the practice or application of measurements, across the entire network stack up to the application layer, with an emphasis on new areas of network communication such as Software-Defined Networks, Cloud services, Content Distribution Networks, Social Networks, mobile applications and data centers. We also welcome more traditional measurement topics, such as traffic classification, anomaly detection, network performance evaluation and traffic analysis.



The Conference maintains the tradition of open and lively interaction between scientists and engineers in academia or industry and serve as a premier forum to exchange ideas, present new results and advance the state-of-the-art.


PhD School


The conference is traditionally co-located with the traditional TMA PhD school, started back in 2010 and recognized as the most important PhD school in network measurement and analysis topics. The TMA PhD school usually brings more than 30 PhD students who are interested in TMA topics, and will bring a vivid contribution to the audience and present their research work in a poster session.




The IEEE/IFIP TMA Conference is a unification of three successful workshops:


  • IFIP/ACM Traffic Monitoring and Analysis Workshop (TMA) - Kevin C. Almeroth's stats
  • IEEE Workshop on TRaffic Analysis and Characterization (TRAC)
  • IEEE Workshop on Network Measurements (WNM)


They have a long tradition, and below you can find the links to all previous editions.
