On 10-12 February 2016, CAIDA hosted the eighth Workshop
on Active Internet Measurements (AIMS-8) as part of our series of
Internet Statistics and Metrics Analysis (ISMA) workshops. This
workshop series provides a forum for stakeholders in Internet active
measurement projects to communicate their interests and concerns,
and explore cooperative approaches to maximizing the collective
benefit of deployed infrastructure and gathered measurements.
Discussion topics included: infrastructure development status
and plans; experimental design, execution, and cross-validation;
challenges to incentivize hosting, sharing, and using measurement
infrastructure; data access, sharing, and analytics; and challenges
of emerging high bandwidth network measurement infrastructure.
Other recurrent topics included paths toward increased interoperability
and cooperative use of infrastructures, and ethical frameworks
to support active Internet measurement.
