[2013-09-20] The paper "Visualizing Internet-Measurements Data for Research Purposes: the NeuViz Data Visualization Tool" by Giuseppe Futia, Enrico Zimuel, Simone Basso, and Juan Carlos De Martin, which describes NeuViz (Neubot Visualizer), an architecture to visualize Neubot data to search for cases (to be investigated with more specific tests) in which a protocol seems discriminated, was presented in Fisciano (Italy) on 20 September 2013 in the context of the Congresso Nazionale AICA 2013.

[2013-09-01] The paper "Challenges and Issues on Collecting and Analyzing Large Volumes of Network Data Measurements" by Enrico Masala, Antonio Servetti, Simone Basso, and Juan Carlos De Martin, which describes the challenges and issues in analyzing large volumes of network measurements data (using Neubot as a case study), will be presented in Genoa (Italy) on 1 September 2013 in the context of the ADBIS Special session on Big Data: New Trends and Applications (BiDaTA) 2013 hosted by the 17th East-European Conference on Advances in Databases and Information Systems (ADBIS) 2013.

[2013-07] The paper "Strengthening measurements from the edges: application-level packet loss rate estimation" by Simone Basso, Michela Meo, and Juan Carlos De Martin, which compares the Inverse-Mathis model for estimating the packet loss rate at the application level presented at W-MUST 2012 with the more advanced Likely-Rexmit model, was published on the July 2013 issue of the ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review.

[2012-08-17] The paper "Estimating packet loss rate in the access through application level measurements" by Simone Basso, Michela Meo, Antonio Servetti, and Juan Carlos De Martin, which describes and evaluates a simple model to estimate the packet loss rate from application level measurements (like the ones performed by Neubot), was presented in Helsinki on 17 August 2012 in the context of the ACM SIGCOMM Workshop on Measurements Up and Down the Stack (W-MUST) 2012 hosted by the ACM SIGCOMM Conference.

[2011-12-17] The poster "Neubot: il network neutrality bot" by Simone Basso, presented in the context of the poster session of the Conferenza Nexa su Internet & Società 2011, written in Italian, provides a great introduction to the Neubot rationale and design, and includes a preliminary qualitative study of the results, lifted from the Congresso Nazionale AICA 2011 paper.

[2011-12-17] The slides "Network Measurement & the Neubot Project", by Simone Basso, were used by Simone Basso to present Neubot in the context of the Network Neutrality panel of the Conferenza Nexa su Internet & Società 2011.

[2011-11-16] The paper “The hitchhiker’s guide to the Network Neutrality Bot test methodology” by Simone Basso, Antonio Servetti, and Juan Carlos De Martin, presented on 16 November 2011 at the Congresso Nazionale AICA 2011, documents the details of the HTTP test, discusses the privacy policy that allows Neubot to publish raw results, and provides a qualitative by-ISP description of the Turin-area data. You can also download the slides and the raw data and scripts used for the article.

[2011-07-01] The paper "The network neutrality bot architecture: a preliminary approach for self-monitoring of Internet access QoS" by Simone Basso, Antonio Servetti and Juan Carlos De Martin, presented on 1 July 2011 at the IEEE 16th International Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC'11), describes enhancements of the Neubot architecture to be able to host "plug-in" tests and starts a preliminary discussion on the results collected in the first three months after the public release of the software. The article received the best student paper award. You can also download the slides.

[2010-11-27] The poster "Neubot, the network neutrality bot" by Simone Basso, presented in the context of the poster session of Conferenza Nexa su Internet & Società 2010, explains (in italian) what is the problem with network neutrality, how Neubot 0.3.x works, and reports the first results (mainly the number of downloads and the number of unique users as of 2010-11-22).

[2010-10-01] The paper "Rationale, Design, and Implementation of the Network Neutrality Bot" by Simone Basso, Antonio Servetti, and Juan Carlos De Martin, presented at the Congresso Nazionale AICA 2010, summarizes background and objectives, and describes the Neubot design and implementation. You can also download the slides.

[2008-06-27] The paper “The Neubot Project: A Collaborative Approach To Measuring Internet Neutrality” by Juan Carlos De Martin and Andrea Glorioso, presented at the IEEE International Symposium on Technology and Society (ISTAS 2008), offers a detailed description of the background and objectives of the Neubot project.
