The International Workshop on Distributed Systems:
Operations and Management (DSOM) is the premier annual
workshop in the general area of network and services
management. It has built up its strong reputation over a
period of two decades. The workshop is sponsored by the
International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP)
Working Group 6.6 on Management of Networks and Distributed
Systems, with technical co-sponsorship by the IEEE
Communications Society, Technical Committee on Network
Operations and Management (CNOM). In its 20th edition,
DSOM 2009 will be held October 26–30, 2009 in Venice, Italy,
as part of the 5th International Week on Management of
Networks and Services (MANWEEK 2009).

*** SCOPE OF DSOM 2009 ***

The primary theme of DSOM 2009 will be "Integrated
Management of Systems, Services, Processes and People in
IT", keeping its focus on the traditional network and system
management disciplines, as well as extending it onto the
emerging research field of managing all other "soft" aspects
of IT, involving people and processes. IT management has
evolved significantly over the past few years as IT-based
solutions have become increasingly critical to the
functioning of organizations. From device, network and
systems management, solutions have evolved to include
service management and IT governance, as witnessed by the
recent popularity of ITIL and COBIT frameworks. The goal of
DSOM 2009 is to bring together industry and academia to
address the research issues related to managing all aspects
of IT, report on practical experiences and discuss about
future research steps.

Paper submissions must present original, unpublished
research or experiences. Late-breaking advances and
work-in-progress reports from ongoing research are also
encouraged for submission to DSOM 2009. Papers under review
elsewhere MUST NOT be submitted to DSOM 2009. Authors are
requested to submit either long papers or short papers
(work-in-progress reports), strictly in LNCS format (see

- Long papers (up to 12 single-spaced single-column pages)
- Short papers describing work-in-progress (up to 6
single-spaced single-column pages)

Submissions exceeding the above mentioned paper size will
not be reviewed and will be returned to the authors. Please
visit JEMS conference management system at
https://jems.sbc.org.br/ (only PDF files are accepted) for
detailed submission instructions.


The DSOM 2009 proceedings will be published in
Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
series. For more information regarding manuscript format
please visit the author's instruction links at LNCS
Springer. Awards will be presented to the best paper and to
the best student paper at the workshop. Furthermore, the
best papers of DSOM 2009 will be invited to be submitted as
extended versions to the IEEE Transactions on Network and
Service Management - TNSM.
