ISMA 2012 AIMS-4 - Workshop on Active Internet Measurements

On February 8-10, 2012, CAIDA hosted the 4th workshop on Active Internet Measurements supporting science and policy. This workshop continues the series of Internet Statistics and Metrics Analysis (ISMA) workshops that are held to discuss the current and future state of Internet measurement and analysis.

Participation in AIMS-4 is by invitation only. Registration is now closed.

Dates: February 8 (Wed) - 10 (Fri), 2012
Place: Auditorium B210E/B211E Meeting Room,
San Diego Supercomputer Center, UCSD Campus, La Jolla, CA


CAIDA is organizing the 4th Workshop on Active Internet Measurement Systems (AIMS-4) in February 2012. In response to survey feedback from the AIMS-3 workshop last year, this year we will focus primarily on two topics: broadband performance measurements and IPv6-related measurements.

Please join the AIMS-4 2012 workshop mailing list for updates, announcements, discussion of the workshop, etc.


A tentative list of agenda items includes (but not limited to):

  • reviewing objectives and plans of active measurement infrastructures, especially aimed at broadband performance and IPv6 measurements
  • broadband performance measurement data analysis and visualization
  • IPv4 to IPv6 transition technologies
  • adapting IPv4 measurement methods to IPv6
  • IPv4/IPv6 comparisons (e.g., topology, performance)
  • fostering collaboration and data sharing among participants

The workshop will run from 12pm Wednesday February 8th to 4pm Friday February 10th. We plan to limit presentations in order to have more time for discussions and interactions.

Local Arrangements / Getting to UCSD

For this workshop, attendees are expected to make their own hotel reservations and transportation arrangements from their hotels to the workshop. For CAIDA's list of recommended local hotels including shuttle availability, see the updated Recommended Hotels list (PDF). Contact the hotel directly for hotel shuttle schedules (if available) to the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).

This workshop is being held in the SDSC East Auditorium (Room B210E/B211E) that faces Hopkins Drive.
(For those GPS-enabled attendees, the GPS coordinates near the SDSC Auditorium is WGS84: 32°53'03.77"N, 117°14'20.31"W)

General driving directions to SDSC are located on the CAIDA Contact and Visitor Info page.

  • Parking on campus
    The most convenient parking is in the Hopkins parking structure at Hopkins Dr and Voigt Dr, just south of SDSC.

    Parking Permits: Parking permits will be provided at the small driveway directly in front of the SDSC building on Hopkins Drive, just outside the auditorium where the event is held. From 11am until the start of the workshop, we will be handing out parking permits for the day to AIMS-4 participants. We will give you instructions on how to mark the parking permit, and point you to the back to the Hopkins Parking Structure for parking. Park ONLY in green "B" or yellow "S" spaces anywhere on campus with the parking permit that is provided.

    Parking permits for subsequent days will be provided at the end of Day 1, just prior to the Reception.

    After picking up your parking permit, it is recommended you go to the Hopkins Parking Structure next to SDSC and park on the lower level. Exiting to the sidewalk along Hopkins Drive, walk north to the SDSC building (on your left; a grove of trees to your right). Facing a flight of concrete stairs into the building, the rooms for the conference will be on the left, labeled Auditorium or B210E/B211E Meeting Room.

UCSD Maps and general UCSD Visitor Parking information is additionally available.


Funding for this event is provided by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate.
