The 9th IFIP International Conference on
Autonomous Infrastructure, Management and Security (AIMS 2015)

June 22 - 26, 2015, Ghent, Belgium


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 2015 focuses on the secure, reliable and automated management of
networks and their services in an all-connected Future Internet. New
paradigms as well as autonomic and distributed algorithms, virtuali-
zation 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

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

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 2015 web page.

PhD Student Workshop Submission:

The PhD student workshop is open to both junior PhD (max 2 years)
and prospective PhD students. Authors are invited to submit short
papers (4 pages excluding 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 advisor(s).
Accepted submissions will be published in the AIMS 2015 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.
