CFP: NetEval 2009 Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Next Generation Networks, co-located with IEEE ISPASS'09 at Boston MA USA , April 26, 2009




                 CALL FOR PAPERS

NetEval 2009 – The First Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Next-
Generation Networks

April 26, 2009
Boston, MA, USA
http://cans.uml.edu/neteval2009.html

Co-located with IEEE ISPASS’09
http://www.ispass.org/ispass2009/

The design and prototyping of the next-generation Internet has been
an active research area in the networking community. Significant
efforts have been devoted to revise many aspects of current network
design including network architecture, network protocols, security
and privacy, and service abstractions.  The development of
experimental network testbeds (e.g. PlanetLab, Emulab, GENI, etc.)
has allowed researchers to evaluate and verify innovative designs
through realistic experiments at a global scale.

The design of the next-generation Internet also draws a great deal of
interest from the computer architecture research community. The
introduction of virtualization and programmability in router systems
requires high performance embedded processing elements. Network
processors, FPGAs, and multi-core processors play important roles in
modern routers and switches.

The expanding functionality of the next-generation Internet and the
increasing complexity of its router systems pose a novel challenge
for performance evaluation. Researchers and developers involved in
designing and implementing new network architectures, router systems,
and network applications need the ability to thoroughly evaluate and
quantitatively compare the performance of these systems. Currently,
there are no established evaluation methodologies, benchmark network
topologies, or application workloads to guide the performance
evaluation process in next-generation networks.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from the networking, computer architecture, and
performance evaluation communities to describe, discuss, and advance
the state of the art in performance evaluation of next-generation
networks. The workshop solicits papers that cover analytic,
simulation-based, and measurement-based performance evaluation topics
in this area. Since this workshop focuses on next-generation
networks, we envision that papers relate to either

1.      performance evaluation techniques in next-generation networks or

2.      specific performance evaluation studies of next-generation
networks and their systems.

*** Topics ***

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

     * Performance evaluation techniques for next-generation networks.
     * Active and passive measurement in next-generation networks.
     * Design and prototypes of network measurement systems and tools.
     * Performance metrics, analysis, and optimization for next-
generation networks.
     * Performance evaluation of network processing systems based on
network processors, FPGAs, or multi-core processors.
     * Performance studies of high performance and programmable routers
     * Benchmarks of next-generation network applications
     * Performance techniques and studies related to network
virtualization.
     * Performance techniques and studies related to network security.
     * Performance techniques and studies related to cross-layer
optimization.
     * Performance evaluation related to GENI and other next-
generation network testbeds.
     * Prototypes and techniques for network trace collection and
analysis in next-generation networks

*** Submission Instructions ***

The workshop welcomes original papers from academia and industry on
