                  The Second IEEE LCN Workshop on Network Measurements

        (To be held in conjunction with The 32nd IEEE Conference on
Local Computer Networks)

                               October 15-18, 2007
                                Dublin, Ireland


                                CALL FOR PAPERS

      The Second LCN International Workshop on Network Measurements,
will be held in
      conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks
(LCN). The
      workshop will include papers and panels dealing with latest
advances and
      challenges facing the field. The expected audience will include
      researchers, practitioners, scientists and engineers from
      academia and government.

      The first  IEEE LCN Workshop on Network Measurements was very
      in bringing together a set of participants actively working on
      measurements in various domains. This year we will continue with
the theme
      "Network Measurements - Different Perspectives," to further
promote the
      exchange of knowledge among different network measurement domains.

      Topics of Interest:
      Network measurements are crucial for operation, diagnosis, and
      characterization of complex networks. Accurate characterization is

      important for understanding the behavior of networks and for
      the scalability, reliability and performance of protocols.
Measurements in
      wired and wireless domains, and end-to-end and subnet measurements
      domain specific constraints while sharing common objectives.
      dynamics of the networks and also the difficulties in performing
      measurement itself pose many challenges. This workshop will
provide a
      forum for researchers and practitioners interested in network
      to discuss and exchange measurement related research in both
wireless and
      wired domains, and also explore emerging fields of measurements
such as on
      mobile devices.

      High quality, previously unpublished work is solicited on the
      including, but not limited to:

        * Measurements on homogenous and heterogeneous networks
        * Physical layer characteristics and measurements for wireless
        * Implementation and operational challenges of wireless testbeds

        * Mobility models and traffic patterns
        * Wired and wireless domain measurements
        * Measurement tools
        * Bandwidth, capacity and delay estimation
        * Active and passive measurements at core nodes
        * End-to-end and/or application-level measurements over the
        * Metrics for network characterization
        * Benchmark scenarios and data sets
        * Measurements on Mobile devices

      Paper length should not exceed 8 pages. Papers should be submitted

      electronically in PDF format via EDAS (Please refer to conference
      for detailed submission instructions). Papers will go through a
      review process. The accepted papers will appear in the IEEE LCN

      Proposals for panel sessions are also invited. Please send the
proposal by
      the same deadline as for papers.
