Scope of the workshop

In its seventh edition, the TMA workshop broadens its scope to all the aspects related to network measurements, covering the entire network stack up to the application layer, with special emphasis on the measurement of cloud services, content distribution networks, social networks, mobile applications and data centers, but also including more traditional measurement topics, such as traffic classification, anomaly detection, network performance evaluation and traffic analysis. As a true workshop, TMA welcomes early-stage research and controversial works.

Accepted papers will be published in a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer Verlag. In addition, IFIP WG6.6 will offer a best paper award to the best paper presented in TMA 2015. All accepted papers are eligible for this award. 

Co-located events

This year, the TMA workshop has three co-located events:

The 5th PhD school on traffic monitoring and analysis. Accepted students will have the chance to follow the TMA workshop free of charge and present their ongoing work as a poster to TMA attendees. Students are also encouraged to submit their work to the TMA workshop for publication.

The SMART Internet-Monitoring Study, chartered by the European Commission to make recommendations on research needs in measurement and monitoring, will organize a satellite workshop this year to present and discuss its conclusions.  The workshop will emphasize policy issues and the measurement tools needed to establish the facts with which to address them.  Invited speakers will present the views of regulators in both the US and Europe

The research project mPlane, sponsored by the European Commission with the goal of measuring and troubleshooting Internet performance and availability by building an Intelligent Measurement Plane for Future Network and Application Management, will organize a workshop to showcase its results to both academic and industrial partners. The workshop, with invited speakers among industrial partners, will focus on practical use cases relevant to operators and providers, and how the advances in traffic monitoring and troubleshooting techniques allow for a better picture of the current Internet.

The TMA workshop will be held in the beautiful city of Barcelona (Spain) on April 23-24, 2015. Barcelona is a first-class tourist destination that displays the characteristics of Mediterranean cities. Barcelona is a compact city, neither too small nor too big, which makes it very welcoming and gives it a cozy atmosphere. It is the only large city in Europe that boasts 5 kilometers of beaches in the city itself. It enjoys a very agreeable and mild climate all yearlong (average temperature in April is 14C/57F). Barcelona is also the Mobile World Capital and hosts the Mobile World Congress (the world’s largest event in the mobile industry). The workshop will take place during Sant George’s day (April 23), which is the most celebrated day in Catalonia and the best moment to enjoy the city of Barcelona. Don't miss it!
