Call For Papers

The 14th IFIP/IEEE Symposium on Integrated Network and Service Management (IM 2015) will be held 11-15 May 2015 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada at the Ottawa Convention Centre. Held in odd-numbered years since 1989, IM 2015 follows the 27 years tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE Communications Society’s forum for technical exchange on management of information and communication technology focusing on research, development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities. IM 2015 will offer five types of sessions: technical, experience, poster, panel and dissertation. High quality will be assured through a well qualified Technical Program Committee and stringent peer review of paper submissions. A special call for demonstrations is organized to allow industry partners and researchers to demonstrate early products and prototypes.
