The first NSF Workshop on Mobile Community Measurement Infrastructure was held on November 12, 2014, in Washington, D.C. This goal of this workshop was to respond to the increasing needs for increased visibility into network behavior to enable cutting-edge research in mobile computing. The workshop brought together the top researchers in both academia and industry, as well as policy makers from FCC, to discuss the requirements for such an infrastructure and identify the concrete steps to make progress towards the identified goals. Given the diverse research topics within mobile computing, we ensured that different research areas and all the important network layers (e.g., physical, MAC, network, transport, and application) were represented at the workshop to ensure a productive outcome from the discussions. We report on the talks, panels and discussions during the workshop, and make recommendations for future directions to address key challenges toward building critical community measurement infrastructure.
