Call for Papers
8th International ICST Conference on Mobile Networks And Management (MONAMI 2016)

23-25 October 2016
Abu Dhabi, UAE

AIM AND SCOPE________________________________________________________

MONAMI 2016 aims at bringing together top researchers, academics and
practitioners specializing in the area of Mobile Network Management,
Service Management, Virtualization and Object Management.

Multiaccess and resource management, mobility management, and network
management have emerged as core topics in the design, deployment and
operation of current and future networks. Yet, they are treated as
separate, isolated domains with very little interaction between the
experts in these fields and lack cross-pollination. Recently, new
avant-garde techniques and solutions have emerged; as notable examples,
Network Function Virtualization, Software-Defined Networking, Network
Virtualization and the Cloud Paradigm have taken roots. All in all,
these techniques bring about new requirements and scientific challenges,
and migration strategies are required to provide a smooth transition
from today’s legacy systems to future systems. At the same time new
wireless broadband access technologies, in what has been referred to as
5G, are posing new challenges and requirements that need to be taken
into account; energy efficiency, densification, offloading are examples
of the new issues the scientific community is currently addressing.

MONAMI 2016 offers the opportunity to leading researchers, industry
professionals and academics around the world to meet and discuss the
latest advances in these areas and present results related to
technologies for true plug-and-play networking, efficient use of all
infrastructure investments, and access competition. The aim of the
forum is to disseminate the latest innovative mobile network
solutions for increased competition and cooperation in an environment
with a multitude of access technologies, network operators and
business actors.

CALL FOR PAPERS______________________________________________________

MONAMI 2016 invites researchers to submit papers within the scope of
the conference that follow either evolutionary approaches based on
current IP-centered architectures or introduce revolutionary
schemes and new paradigms. Papers reporting experimental and
empirical studies as well as implementation/industry results
(including testbeds and field trials) are also welcome.

Topics of particular interest include:

- Multiaccess networks and resource management
- Mobile network management and virtualization
- Future 5G network architecture
- Operation and management of virtualized network functions
- Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networking
- Joint management and orchestration of cloud and networking
- Future Internet architectures with smart objects
- Opportunistic networks
- Energy efficiency for multiaccess networks
- Emerging multimedia services, service enablers and management
- IEEE and 3GPP management standards and enabling technologies
- Design, implementation, and testbed/experimental evaluations
- Service and application management platforms
- Autonomic network monitoring and management
- Architecture and design of new services with smart objects: in
smart home and ambient assisted living environments
- Energy-efficient, self-organized access and routing schemes for
smart object systems
- Security solutions for managed and infrastructureless networks
- Management of wireless cognitive networks
- Traffic models and analysis for future networks
- Big data

MONAMI 2016 is sponsored by ICST. The conference is technically co-
sponsored by Create-Net and is organized in association with the
European Alliance for Innovation.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the
LNICST series, and will be archived online on SpringerLink.

*Paper Submission*

We encourage submissions of high-quality technical papers reporting
original research that has not been previously published, and is not
currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Full Papers should
not exceed 14 pages in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST)
format and must be submitted by May, 15th. LNICST templates are
available from

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three
independent reviewers, including a TPC member to ensure high quality
and relevance to the topics of the conference. All accepted papers
will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST series and
then be included in major article indexing services.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version
of their works for potential publication in a Special Issue of the
Springer Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) journal.

*Important Dates*

Paper Submission Deadline: 15 May 2016
Notification of Acceptance: 7 August 2016
Camera Ready Deadline: 2 September 2016
Conference Date: 23-25 October 2016

CALL FOR TUTORIALS__________________________________________________

We invite perspective tutorial speakers to submit relevant proposals
for a half-day tutorial. The scope of the tutorial proposal should be
within the interest of MONAMI attendees (see Aim and Scope and topics
of interest). In addition, tutorial proposals on related and
complementary topics, e.g. mobile devices or applications, smart grids
or alternative energy supply are welcome. Each tutorial proposal
should include the title, objectives, abstract, outline, and intended
audience. A short biography of each tutorial presenter should also be
submitted along with the list of conferences/events where this
tutorial has been previously presented.

Please submit your proposal in electronic form to the Tutorials Chair
by 17 April 2016.
