Call For Papers

3rd International Conference on
Autonomous Infrastructure, Management and Security
AIMS 2009
June 30 - July 2, 2009
University of Twente, The Netherlands

The AIMS conference is a single-track event integrating normal
conference paper sessions, tutorials, keynotes, and a PhD student
workshop into a highly interactive event. One of the goals of AIMS
is to look beyond borders and to stimulate the exchange of ideas
across different communities and among PhD students.

AIMS 2009 focusses on the scalability of networks and services. The
various aspects of scalability are of interest, in particular the
design, monitoring, management, and protection of scalable networked
systems in an efficient and autonomic way.

* Proceedings

The conference proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture
Notes of Computer Science (LNCS) series and will include the
conference papers as well as the PhD student workshop papers.
Tutorial materials will be distributed to participants at the

* 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 2009 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 2009 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 PhD).
The workshop provides the opportunity to present, discuss, and obtain
feedback from the AIMS 2009 audience about the planned PhD 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
novel, and it should outline the 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 proceedings.

* Best Paper Award

The program committee will select one paper for the Best Paper Award
(all regular papers are eligible). The winner will be presented at
the conference.

* Location

The University of Twente (UT), located in the east of the Netherlands,
is an entrepreneurial research university. It was founded in 1961 and
offers education and research in areas ranging from public policy
studies and applied physics to biomedical technology.
