[ACM SIGCOMM 2005 Workshop on Mining Network Data (MineNet-05)]

  • From: k claffy

perhaps more relevant to nanog-futures list but
i'll assume everyone cares.

  Today's IP networks are extensively instrumented for collecting a wealth
  of information including traffic traces (e.g., packet or flow level
  traces), control (e.g., router forwarding tables, BGP and OSPF updates),
  and management (e.g., alarms, SNMP traps) data. The real challenge is to
  process and analyze this vast amount of primarily unstructured
  information and extract structures, relationships, and "higher level
  knowledge" embedded in it and use it to aid network management and
  operations. The goal of this one day workshop is to explore new
  directions in network data collection, storage, and analysis techniques,
  and their application to network monitoring, management, and
  remediation. The workshop will provide a venue for researchers and
  practitioners from different backgrounds, including networking, data
  mining, machine learning, and statistics, to get together and
  collaboratively approach this problem from their respective vantage
  We are soliciting original/position papers on topics (including, but not
  limited to) listed below.
     - Collection, storage & access infrastructure: platform
       instrumentation (e.g. multi-modal, multi-resolution sensors),
       collection techniques (e.g. event sampling, filtering,
       aggregation, etc.), storage and access (e.g. retention policy,
       indexing techniques etc.).
     - Network data analytics techniques & tools: network stream mining,
       network graph mining, micro-clustering, temporal and statistical
       correlation, causality tracking, machine learning.
    -   Applications to network operations & management: network problem
       determination, network reliability and performance, root-cause
       analysis, security, emerging phenomenon detection (e.g. DDoS,
       virus/worm, spam etc.), traffic classification.
  Of particular interest are (i) new solution techniques as well as
  applications of existing techniques from data mining, machine learning
  and statistics to IP network problems, (ii) experiences with the use of
  such techniques for IP networks, and (iii) open networking problems and
  challenges that would benefit from the use of such techniques. Selected
  papers will be forward-looking, with impact and implications for both
  operational networks and ongoing or future research.  
  Submission Instructions
  Papers should be at most 6 pages long, in standard ACM format
  (single-spaced, double column, at least 10pt font). Accepted papers will
  appear in the workshop proceedings. Authors of accepted papers are
  expected to present their work at the workshop. Detailed submission
  guidelines will be available soon at
