Call For Papers


The 5th International Conference on
Autonomous Infrastructure, Management and Security

Nancy, France, 13-17 June, 2011

The fifth International Conference on Autonomous Infrastructure,
Management, and Security (AIMS 2011) brings together researchers, PhD
students, prospective PhD students, and their dissertation advisors,
with the common goal of charting the future of management of
next-generation networks and services. In providing highly reliable,
robust, and secure network services, it is becoming increasingly
difficult to separate "network management" from "service management".
Managing next-generation networks and services will require new and
creative paradigms for network and service management, as well as
refinement of existing management techniques including autonomic and
fully distributed algorithms, virtualization, and self-organizing
network overlays.

Thus AIMS 2011 will look beyond traditional borders and stimulate
exchange of ideas across traditionally separate communities and among
PhD students. AIMS 2011 is a single-track conference integrating
normal conference paper sessions, tutorials, keynotes, and a PhD
student workshop into one highly interactive event. AIMS conference
papers, tutorials, and keynotes discuss the state of the art, while
the PhD student workshop gives new and potential PhD students the
opportunity to explore PhD topics and receive timely feedback on plans
for future research.

Authors are invited to submit unpublished papers that are not under
review in any other conference or journal in the following or related
topic areas:

- Autonomic network and service management
- Service provisioning mechanisms
- Socio-economic effects of service provisioning
- Adaptability and self-organization
- Economic traffic management
- Incentives in P2P and Grid networks
- Decentralized and distributed management techniques
- Management of grid resources and virtual networks
- Overlay- and P2P-based management systems
- Intrusion detection in large networks
- Protection against distributed attacks and botnets
- Monitoring and visualization of management data and systems behavior
- Accounting of systems, services, and behaviors
- Distributed network analysis and accounting
- Modeling of management technologies and procedures
- Virtualization of resources and services
- Configuration and security in the Internet of Things

Conference Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit original contributions (written in
English) in PDF format. Only original, full papers that have not been
published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted to
the AIMS 2011 paper track. Each submission will be limited to 12
pages in the LNCS paper format. Papers exceeding 12 pages, multiple
submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without
further review. Paper submission is handled by the JEMS system,
accessible from the AIMS 2011 Web page. Submissions to the conference
are expected to report substantial research results relevant for the
subjects listed above.

PhD Student Workshop Submission

The PhD workshop is open to both PhD and prospective PhD students
(i.e. graduate students in their last year who intend to pursue a
Ph.D.). This workshop provides the opportunity to present, discuss,
and obtain feedback from the AIMS 2011 audience about the planned
Ph.D. research work. Authors are invited to submit short papers (4
pages, written in English and in PDF format) describing the current
state of their research. The paper should include a clear description
of the research problem and the chosen approach, argue why the problem
is hard and the approach is novel, and should outline results achieved
to date. Specific, low-level technical details should be avoided.
Papers should have no more than two authors - the student and the
advisor. Accepted submissions will be published in the AIMS 2011
