The 15th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium
on Integrated Network Management

8-12 May 2017, Lisbon, Portugal

"Integrated Management in the Cloud and 5G Era"


The 15th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network
Management (IM 2017) will be held 8-12 May 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal.
Held in odd-numbered years since 1989, IM 2017 follows the 29 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 2017 will focus on the theme "Integrated Management in the Cloud
and 5G Era" presenting recent, emerging approaches and technical
solutions for dealing with 5G and cloud infrastructures, as well as
associated services and applications. Submissions addressing
traditional network management challenges are also in the scope of the
conference. IM 2017 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
rigorous peer review of papers. A special call for demonstrations is
organized to allow industry partners and researchers to demonstrate
early products and prototypes.
