DSOM 2008: 19th IFIP/IEEE International Workshop on Distributed Systems: Operations and Management
September 22-26, Samos Island, Greece

"Managing Large Scale Service Deployment"

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 almost 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 19th edition, DSOM 2008 will be held September 25-26, 2008 on the Island of Samos, Greece, as part of the 4th International Week on Management of Networks and Services (MANWEEK 2008).


The primary theme of DSOM 2008 will be "Managing Large Scale Service Deployment" focusing both on management of overlay networks and on virtualized service infrastructures. The concepts of abstract overlays and virtualization could constitute key contributors for efficient large scale service deployment and testing. Scalable abstract overlay networks accompanied with appropriate management techniques could offer flexibility for future service deployment and consumption with high quality of experience. Virtualization decouples service substantiation from its actual realization over networking and IT infrastructures enabling wide-scale deployment of services. The goal of DSOM 2008 is to bring together industry and academia to address the research issues related to managing large scale services deployment, report on practical experiences and discuss about future research steps.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Management of next generation service networks
- Virtualization of networks and services
- Self-management and virtualization in distributed systems
- Performance and QoS management in virtualized environments
- Scalable overlay network management
- Algorithms for dynamic overlay network topology construction and service selection
- Distributed, decentralized, and P2P-based overlay network management
- QoS and resilience through overlay networks
- Dynamic service deployment for fault tolerance, resource efficiency and high availability
- Federated experimental facilities
- Large scale distributed middleware
- Management and operations of massively redundant data centers
- P2P techniques for management of massive amounts of data and services
- Middleware for efficient management of sensor network services
- Large scale personal content management systems
- Managing security in a virtual environment
- Fault management and event correlation
- Monitoring and measurements


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 2008. Papers under review elsewhere MUST NOT be submitted to DSOM 2008. Authors are requested to submit either long papers or short papers (work-in-progress reports), strictly in LNCS format (see below):
- 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 (only PDF files are accepted) for detailed submission instructions.


The DSOM 2008 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 conference. Furthermore, the best papers of DSOM 2008 will be invited to be submitted as extended versions to the IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management - TNSM.
