IEEE International Workshop on Measurements & Networking


Following the success of the first edition, the 2nd IEEE International Workshop M&N 2013 aims to represent a forum for researchers and practitioners from industry, academia, and government interested in the areas of measurements, communications, computer science, wireless systems, sensor networks and to foster discussion on the role of both measurements for networking and networking for measurements.

The workshop will provide the opportunity to gather complementary competencies from different fields, and discuss recent results and trends on related highly interdisciplinary topics:

Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts (3-4 pages) reporting original research of theoretical or applied nature using on-line submission system. Guidelines for the authors are reported on the workshop website. 


QoS measurement and performance assessment
* Methods and techniques for performance assessment in networks
* Protocol analysis
* Traffic analysis and monitoring
* Cross-layer measurements
* Error management and troubleshooting in networks

Security measurements
* Coexistence and interference problems in wireless networks
* Signal integrity problems
* Anomaly detection and classification
* Models and measurements for dependability assessment

Measurements on network infrastructures
* Characterization of network equipment
* In-service testing
* Out-of-service measurements
* Conformance and interoperability testing
* Load tests 

Wireless Sensors Networks (WSN)
* Modeling and performance prediction
* Design and implementation
* Measurements for characterization and performance assessment
* Synchronization issues 

GRID and distributed measurements
* GRID architecture for measurements
* Distributed measurement systems 

The workshop has also two Special sessions on:
- Dependability and security measurements in computer systems and networks (organized by Andrea Bondavalli, Univ. Florence and Marco Vieira, Univ. Coimbra)
- Sensor Networks for Ambient Assisted Living (organized by Buno Ando', Univ. Catania) 

Accepted Papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library and indexed by EI/Compendex.
** IMPORTANT: A Special Issue of the IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurements is connected to the workshop. **
Accepted papers will be included in the Workshop Proceedings published by IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society, and distributed at the workshop.
