             Passive & Active Measurement: PAM-2001

                       Registration Opens

A workshop on passive and active measurement techniques for high speed
computer networks and the Internet

                    Amsterdam, the Netherlands,
                        April 23-24, 2001

As the Internet has grown over the last decade the need for precise
measurement of network traffic has become steadily more apparent; most of
today's Internet Service Providers and many of their large network
customers are collecting and analysing traffic data for the purposes of
performance monitoring, network engineering and cost recovery, but the
engineering quality of these measurements vary.

A steadily growing number of research groups have been working in the
areas of:

- Active Measurements, i.e. sending test packets and observing their
  progress through the Internet,
- Passive Measurements, i.e. observing actual traffic on 'live' networks,
- Performance Metrics, i.e. developing measures or indicators which can be
  used to characterise traffic behavior,
- Traffic Statistics, i.e. attempting to understand and develop models of
  'real' Internet traffic, and
- Visualisation, i.e. finding effective ways to display what's happening
  in a network.

After the successful workshop PAM2000 in Hamilton, New Zealand, in April
2000, the RIPE NCC will be organising another workshop on this topic in
Amsterdam in April 2001.

Registration for this workshop has now been opened.  To register online,

reservation sites can be found on the webpage.

There are still opportunities for participants to present measurement
equipment and software. Proposals for demonstrations (about 500 words,
plain ASCII) should be sent by email to the conference chair at
pam2001@localhost by 5 March 2001.
