There is considerable network measurement work being conducted within the Internet community -- both in standards bodies (e.g., IETF IPPM WG) and in various research labs. The goal of the Internet Measurement Research Group (IMRG) is to provide a venue to: (1) provide a forum for discussion of Internet measurement research issues, (2) aid in the coordination of various research projects, (3) assess new measurement techniques, and (4) increase interactions between operators, developers of measurement tools and techniques, and researchers who analyze and model Internet dynamics. The scope includes all kinds of network measurement (active techniques, passive monitoring, end-point probing, in-network methods, network layer, transport layer, application layer, etc.). The RG will both attempt to design new measurement techniques and analyze measurements of the network taken.
The group's charter is here.
