NNTools 2015 – Workshop outcomes
23 March 2015 TOP-IX Team

The Nexa Center for Internet & Society at Politecnico di Torino organized a two-day intensive workshop entitled “NNTools 2015 – Multidisciplinary Workshop on Network-Measurement Methodologies and Tools Applied to Net Neutrality” in the context of EINS, the Network of Excellence in InterNet Science.

This workshop gathered people working in network measurements and people studying telecommunications policy to discuss issues related to network neutrality and network measurements, both from the point of view of network measurement tools and from the point of view of policy.

One of the main outcomes of the workshop, currently being refined in a working paper edited collaboratively, is the discussion of the disincentives cooperate that reduce the potential impact of network measurement tools.

Before and during the workshop, there was also a hacking session in which participants worked to improve TheTorProject/libight, a network measurement library developed in the context of the MORFEO project. This hacking session was kindly hosted by TOP-IX (TOrino Piemonte Internet eXchange) Consortium.
