Hi all,

there was a request for an overview/survey paper on measurement platforms in the meeting. I just realized that this pointer was already posted on the hops list a while ago (see below).

We, as chairs, will start a Wiki (soon) to collect information about measurement platforms as well as measurement tools (and take this as a starting point). 

Let us as well as the group know if you have further knowledge about this kind of overview papers or similar things by posting a pointer on the list!
