Call for Papers (pdf | txt)

The seventh edition of the TRAC workshop continues to serve as a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to exchange and discuss their experiences and research results about all aspects of traffic classification, characterization, and analysis. The workshop is soliciting high quality papers discussing original and innovative experimental activities, unpublished and not currently submitted for publication elsewhere, on topics including (but not limited) to the following:

  • Traffic analysis and characterization algorithms and techniques

  • Detection, analysis, and classification of network anomalies

  • Platforms for on-line, real-time traffic analysis and characterization

  • Evaluation of traffic classification and analysis techniques

  • Data-reduction techniques for traffic analysis and visualization

  • Privacy-preservation in traffic analysis, classification, and characterization

  • Effects of anonymization on traffic analysis, classification, and characterization

  • Identification and classification of encrypted traffic

  • QoE-based traffic analysis and characterization

  • Advanced algorithms for deep packet inspection

  • Big data frameworks for traffic analysis

  • Post-DPI approaches for traffic classification

  • Applications of traffic analysis to network security

  • Traffic analysis studies on operational networks and large-scale traffic data sets

  • Applications of traffic analysis to network operations and management

  • Ultra-high rate traffic analysis, classification, and characterization

  • Analysis and characterization of mobile and wireless traffic

  • Forwarding-plane support for network measurement and analysis
