The 31st Network Management Research Group (NMRG) meeting was organized at the Swissôtel Zürich, Switzerland, on Monday October 14th, 2013, co-located with the Conference on Network and Service Management 2013. This was the 1st NMRG workshop specifically tailored towards large scale network measurements. The goal of the workshop was to bring together researchers and in particular PhD students working in this area. In this report, we describe topics that were discussed at the workshop.

This workshop was organized and sponsored by the EU projects Leone and Flamingo in collaboration with the EU project mPlane. We would like to thank all the presenters of the meeting (in the order of presentations): Philip Homburg (RIPE NCC), Alessio Botta (University of Napoli Federico II), Brian Trammell (ETH Zürich), Hoang Dinh (Osaka University), Jeferson Campos Nobre (University Rio Grande do Sul), Nicolas Rouhana (Beritech), Julien Broisin (University of Toulouse), Andrey Sapegin (HPI Potsdam), Ahsan Saba (Aalto University), Fabien Duchêne (University of Louvain), Vaibhav Bajpai (Jacobs University Bremen), Jair Santanna (University of Twente), Dimitri Papadimitriou (Alcatel-Lucent), Lukáš Kekely (CESNET), and Daniel Dönni (University of Zürich). We would also like to thank Paul Brusil for reviewing our manuscript. This work was supported by the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) Grant No. 317647 (Leone). This workshop was also partly funded by Flamingo, a Network of Excellence project (ICT-318488) supported by the European Commission under its Seventh Framework Programme.
