Call For Papers


The 8th International Conference on
Autonomous Infrastructure, Management and Security (AIMS 2014)

June 30 - July 3, 2014, Brno, Czech Republic


The AIMS international conference is a single-track event, including
conference paper sessions, hands-ons and keynotes, which focuses on
early research done by PhD students and young researchers in network
and service management and security. The participants find here a
dedicated place for getting a constructive feedback by senior
scientists and they benefit from tutorials on transversal aspects of a
research activity (e.g. publication strategies, paper reviewing,
research presentation design). By taking part in a dedicated
workshop, the PhD students are invited at an early stage to present
and motivate their work as well as their research plans. Finally, by
being involved in practical hands-on sessions, PhD students and young
researchers will get an up-to-date knowledge combined with basic
skills on emerging technologies. This way, AIMS acts as a
complementary piece in the set of international conferences in the
network and service management community.

AIMS 2014 focuses on the management of infrastructures, services and
content, as focal components of the Future Internet. New paradigms as
well as autonomic and fully distributed algorithms, virtualization and
monitoring techniques or self-organizing overlays have to be
investigated to design scalable and resilient frameworks able to deal
with dynamic and often domain-specific environments, and also to cope
with big data to process and content to be delivered. The design,
monitoring, configuration and protection of the next generation of
networked systems in an efficient, secure, and autonomic manner are
crucial to commercially viable and successful networks and services.

Authors are invited to submit papers on the following topics,
including related fields:

Network and service management
- Wireless networks (adhoc, mesh, sensor, vehicular, ...)
- Internet of things
- Smart cities
- Smart grids
- SCADA networks
- Overlay, grid and virtual networks
- Big data
- Software defined networks
- Data centers and clouds (Iaas, Paas and SaaS)
- Content delivery (P2P, CDN, ICN, ...)
- Social networks
- Future Internet

Management functions
- Intrusion detection
- Protection of infrastructures and services
- Security management
- Configuration management
- Accounting of systems, services and behaviors
- Economic traffic management
- Service provisioning
- Resilience of management infrastructures and services
- Privacy and management data
- Quality of service and experience

Techniques and Methodologies
- Autonomic and self-management
- Distributed monitoring and correlation
- Risk management
- Knowledge plane design and deployment
- P2P-based management
- Modeling of management technologies and procedures
- Flow based management
- Scalability of management infrastructures
- Experimental studies

Conference Paper Submission:

Only original, full papers that have not been published or submitted
for publication elsewhere can be submitted. Each submission must be
written in English and will be limited to 12 pages, references
excluded, 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 2014 Web page.

PhD Student Workshop Submission:

The PhD student workshop is open to both junior PhD and prospective
PhD students. Authors are invited to submit short papers (4 pages
excluded references, written in English and in LNCS 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 novel, and it should outline the
results achieved to date. Specific, low-level technical details should
be avoided. Papers will be evaluated based on the proposed idea,
methodology and foreseen impact. Authors of the papers should only be
the student and his/her advisors. Accepted submissions will be
published in the AIMS 2014 proceedings.

Proceedings (pending approval):

The conference proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture
Notes of Computer Science (LNCS) series (pending approval) and will
include the conference papers as well as the PhD student workshop
