Call For Papers

The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Management of Emerging Networks and Services (IEEE MENS 2011)
in conjunction with IEEE GLOBECOM 2011, 5-9 December 2011, Huston, Texas, USA

More recently, requirements in network management and control have been amended by emerging network and computing models, including wireless sensor networks, ad hoc networks, overlay networks, grid networks, optical networks, multimedia networks, storage networks, the convergence of next generation networks (NGN) or even nanonetworks etc. Increasingly ubiquitous network environments require new management strategies, which can cope with resource constraints, multi-federated operations, scalability, dependability, context awareness, security, mobility and probability etc. To bring complex network systems under control, it is necessary for the IT industry to move to autonomic management, autonomic features in both the data and control planes of the network, context-aware management and self-management systems in which technology itself is used to manage technology. New theoretical approaches are needed in resolving the challenging problems in network management including network architectural reference models that incorporate autonomic and self-management principles. This workshop will provide a forum to researchers to propose theories and technologies on the management of emerging networks and services, share their experience of IT and telecommunications industries and discuss future management solutions for emerging networks and services.


Authors are invited to submit papers in theories and techniques for the management of emerging networks or related areas. Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

- Management of Emerging Networks and Services
- Management of Next Generation Networks

IEEE MENS 2011 only accept original, previously unpublished papers. Concurrent submission to GLOBECOM and other conferences or journals is not allowed. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers in IEEE style up to 5 pages, but one additional page is allowed with additional publication fee. You may use the standard IEEE Transactions templates for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats found at Only PDF files are accepted for paper review and must be submitted through EDAS (

An accepted paper must be registered before the registration deadline. An accepted paper should be presented at the workshop. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of the paper from the workshop proceedings and the program. All accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEE GLOBECOM proceedings and available through IEEEXplore. GLOBECOM has the right to remove an accepted and registered but not presented paper from the IEEEXplore.


Submission due: July 19, 2011
