Second NSF Workshop on perfSONAR based Multi-domain Network Performance
Measurement and Monitoring (pSW 2014)
Venue: National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA
Dates: 02/20/14 – 02/21/14

**Call for Participation (By Invitation Only)**

perfSONAR ( is an infrastructure and a set of
services for network performance monitoring, facilitating the ability to make
and exchange performance measurements in order to: (a) solve end-to-end
performance problems on paths crossing several networks, and (b) enable
network-aware applications. There are over 700 publicly registered perfSONAR
toolkit deployments worldwide, and the adoption is continuing to grow rapidly
within data-intensive application communities.

The Second NSF-sponsored perfSONAR Workshop (pSW2014) will run from 9am
February 20th to noon February 21st, 2014 at NSF, Arlington VA. The second
workshop builds upon the success of the first workshop held 8-9 July 2010 in
Arlington, VA, and is open to members of the network and system measurement
community that includes a variety of stakeholders: researchers, applications
developers, network operators, network managers, and others with an interest
in network/system research and performance measurement/monitoring. The
workshop aims to bring together these stakeholders for delivering targeted
tutorials, talks sharing latest advances/demos from invited speakers, and
fostering discussions to identify gaps that exist for solving prominent
issues such as:

- Network measurement tools development and calibration
- Algorithms and Techniques for Automated Network Troubleshooting
- Architectures for Federated Measurement Collection, Analysis and Sharing
- Measurement Federation related Standards-development Efforts
- Monitoring of Software Defined, and Overlay Networks
- Measurement of Cloud and Grid Application Environments
- Security and Policy Considerations for Federated Measurements
- Case Studies of End-to-End Network/System Performance Troubleshooting
- Applications Integration and Deployment (e.g., network support use cases in
Science DMZ, Cloud/HPC and BigData)

Participants who would like to present at the workshop are requested to send
a presentation abstract along with a brief bio (in PDF format) to

with the subject line as "<Speaker Name> Presentation Abstract". NSF-funded
travel grants are available for speakers.
**Presentation Abstract Submission deadline: December 20, 2013**
**Acceptance notification: January 10, 2014**

Participants who would like to attend the workshop to contribute in the
discussions should send a 1-Page description (in PDF format) of the intent to
participate to

with the subject line as "<Attendee Name> Intent Abstract". The description
should include: (i) a brief bio, (ii) a set of challenges and opportunities
relating to network/system performance measurement/monitoring that should be
discussed in the workshop, and (iii) how your participation would add value
to the workshop discussions.
**Intent Abstract Submission deadline: December 20, 2013**
**Invitation notification: January 10, 2014**
If travel support is needed, please follow instructions provided at -

We strongly encourage participation not only from current perfSONAR
stakeholders, but also from potential stakeholders and research community
members not previously involved in perfSONAR activities but are interested in
joining and contributing to the perfSONAR community.
