1st IFIP/IEEE International Workshop on Managing Federations & Cooperative
Management, Monday 23rd May 2011
In conjunction with The 12th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on
Integrated Network Management 23-27 May 2011 at Trinity College Dublin,


Management approaches that can be applied across organisational
boundaries are increasingly important in a wide range of application
areas. These range from algorithmic approaches which adapt to the
observed behaviour of third-party systems, based on game-theoretic
approaches or other predictive models, to explicit organisational
federations which adopt coherent solutions and management models to
facilitate interoperability among multiple independent organisations.

There are a number of significant, common, complex issues which must be
addressed in all technologies and applications that involve federated
organisations - how to enable secure governance in the absence of a
single, central point of authority; how to achieve semantic
interoperability in the absence of common schema; how to provide
effective access control in the absence of common user and role models;
how to provide analytics and support for effective decision making; how
to adapt to environments that can be highly dynamic as well as highly
heterogeneous; how to construct and maintain a common inter-domain
governance model in the presence of highly diverse local governance
infrastructures .

This workshop will, for the first time, bring together researchers from
a broad array of application and technical areas who are concerned with
cross-domain management. It will draw out common themes, problems and
issues encountered, and the solutions being designed to deal with the
problems of managing information systems that span autonomous domains.
It will aim to provide the basis for a common understanding and common
approaches to inter-domain management and governance that synthesises
the insights and best of breed solutions being developed in the diverse
areas in which these problems are encountered.


* Cross Domain and Federated Management Issues in the following areas
* Governance mechanisms for federated environments, e.g. Policy Based
* Collaborative management, algorithmic adaptation, game theoretic
approaches, predictive modelling.
* Modelling cross-domain relationships, i.e. Information models, formal
specifications, languages for federation
* Distributed trust management and federated security systems
* Data federation
* Semantic technologies, semantic mapping and linked data
* Information security in federated environments
* Cloud & grid computing management
* Software engineering for federated systems, i.e. tool chains, design
by contract, model driven engineering and design patterns
* Model driven approaches for the generation of adaptive inter-domain
* Adaptive analytics for the support of managing complex, dynamic
multi-domain solutions


Authors are invited to submit full papers (8 pages) describing the
original work to the ManFed.CoM 2011 website. All manuscripts must be
written in English and should be prepared in IEEE style. All submitted
papers will be reviewed by the ManFed.CoM Technical Program Committee.

For the review, all the papers should be submitted in PDF format through
the ManFed.Com page on the JEMS system
(, filling every item and uploading
the respective papers.

The contributed papers, after being reviewed and accepted by ManFed.CoM
referees, will be published in the Conference Proceedings that will be
included in the IEEE Conference Publication Program and will be
available on IEEE Xplore. The papers will also be indexed and abstracted
by several databases such as INSPEC, Engineering Index (EI), SCOPUS,
Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI), etc.

Finally, the organizing committee are currently in discussions with the
editors of of leading network and service management journals regarding
the publication of a special issue in which the best submissions will


* Full Paper Submission: 15th December 2010
