This workshop is by invitation only. ITL PI's and Grad Students involved with the Internet Teaching Labs should attend this workshop.
The Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA) is a collaborative effort
toward greater cooperation in engineering and maintaining a robust, scalable global Internet
infrastructure. Its neutral framework supports cooperative endeavors by government, academia,
and commercial providers and vendors.
CAIDA's Internet Engineering Curriculum repository offers dynamic, state-of-the-art Internet
engineering training materials. Other CAIDA outreach includes periodic Internet Statistics and
Metrics Analysis (ISMA) workshops focusing on problems inherent in scaling the Internet.
CAIDA's visualization tools are an important means of depicting the Internet infrastructure.
Publicly available measurement and analysis tools, including Coral passive traffic monitors,
cflowd software, and skitter active measurement tools provide unique windows into Internet
traffic behavior. CAIDA also supports deployment of prototypes, such as the commercial cache
initiative at the MAE-West exchange; benchmarking of Internet hardware and software; and a
network access point for Southern California ISPs.
