CFP: NetEval 2009- The First Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Next-Generation Networks, Boston MA, April 26, 2009

                 CALL FOR PAPERS

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

April 26, 2009
Boston, MA, USA

Co-located with IEEE ISPASS'09

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
* 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
     * 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 ***
