NMMC has previously been held at the Laboratory for Telecommunications Sciences in College Park, Maryland (Conference website: 2008 and 2009), and it grew out of NetTomo workshops which were held in Adelaide, Australia (2007) and Sunnyvale, California (2004-2006).

Network mapping and measurement plays a crucial role in management, operation, and monitoring of resources and infrastructure.  Network structure and performance information is not always directly accessible or measurable.  Network mapping and measurement algorithms and systems enable efficient and intelligent inference and monitoring of large-scale complex systems.  The focus of this workshop is on mapping and measurement issues in networked systems (including probing and inference algorithms

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate current research or developments in theoretical and practical aspects of network mapping and measurement.  Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Network tomography
  • Inference of link-level performance from end-to-end measurements
  • Traffic matrix modeling and estimation
  • Active and passive probing measurement and inference
  • Social network analysis
  • Inference of routing policies from path-level measurements
  • Network anomaly detection
  • Network and measurement visualization
  • Bandwidth and capacity estimation
  • Sparsity in network inference
  • Network inference and monitoring in other domains (biology, chemistry, physics, power/water networks and other critical infrastructure)
  • Network science
