DIMACS Workshop on Internet and WWW Measurement, Mapping and Modeling

Co-sponsored by DIMACS and Microsoft Research.
Presented under the auspices of the Special Focus on
Next Generation Networks Technologies and Applications.
The Internet is capturing a central role in the social and economic
fabrics of the global structure. While it is growing at a remarkable
rate, there is currently no means by which users or network planners
can track this growth. Mapping the network, namely, taking
a snapshot of its current status, can help applications to better
utilize the network. Analyzing maps taken over long periods of time
can help in understanding how the Internet evolves.
Understanding the Internet structure and evolution can help in designing
and constructing better applications, and in the deployment of new
network level services.
The goal of this workshop is to examine the Internet structure
and the structure of its most widely-used application, the WWW,
and to examine tools, methods, and instrumentations designed to
map and understand the Internet structure.
In particular, we are interested in the following issues:
Internet and WWW structure modeling:
Tools for mapping and measuring the Internet and the WWW:
Effect of mapping and measurement on application performance:
virtual topology construction.
The workshop will consist of both invited and solicited contributions..
Next: Call for Participation
