DIMACS Workshop on Internet and WWW Measurement, Mapping and Modeling

February 13 - 15, 2002
DIMACS Center, Rutgers University, Piscataway, New Jersey

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:
empirical studies,
mathematical models,
topology generators.

Tools for mapping and measuring the Internet and the WWW:
discovery techniques,
measurement techniques,
measurement infrastructure,

Effect of mapping and measurement on application performance:
application-level routing,
network-adaptive applications,
group communication,
virtual topology construction.
The workshop will consist of both invited and solicited contributions..
Next: Call for Participation
