Network traffic patterns reflect increasingly complex interactions among
people, organizations, and machines. This global information flow is shaped
by network capacity, topology, complex interactions among protocols, and
network controls. The Internet and the large public, private and government
networks reveal dynamic behaviors which differ radically from traditional
telephony; furthermore, traffic patterns evolve rapidly in time as new
distributed services are deployed, and new social groups of users are formed.
Methods for traffic and performance management under such conditions are not
well understood, and their development requires new comprehensive approaches
to modeling and analysis of wireline and wireless networks.
This workshop will focus on current developments in modeling, simulation,
and algorithmic techniques which take into account the observed and measured
behavior of networks. In order to obtain a reasonably complete picture of
the state of the art, and to stimulate further research, the organizers have
invited practitioners of industrial and defense network modeling together with
researchers involved in the analysis and simulations of networks and protocols.
We are particularly interested in identifying areas requiring further research,
and in creating an informal forum for practitioners, researchers, and students
to hear each other and to exchange ideas.
The primary topics covered in the workshop are:
Invited speakers (as of August 25) :
- network modeling and simulation practices in industry and military
