TMA 2018 will feature a special session on hands-on network traffic measurement and analysis. The goal of this session is to provide a venue to disseminate network measurement and analysis work that is of a more practical flavor, describing experience with hands-on measurement, data collection and analysis, system implementation, design and development of data collection tools, and application of measurement systems and tools in practice.

Papers should focus on describing experiences that can benefit the community, such as: “tips and tricks” in measurement and data analysis, new tools and trends in data collection/analysis/visualization, common measurement/analysis pitfalls and how to avoid them, strengths and limitations of existing measurement systems and tools, etc. Submissions to this session will be reviewed by the main conference program committee; however, the evaluation criteria for the special session will focus more on practical aspects of the work rather than research contributions.

Important dates

Submission deadline: Sunday, April 1, 2018 (extended)
