*** Special Track on Autonomic Management ***

IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management
Lisbon, Portugal, 8-12 May 2017

(Paper Submission Date: 24 January 2017)


Programmable and software networks require more than ever management
systems with smart, adaptive and effective decisions, recommendations
and actuations. Management systems should incorporate autonomic
management principles to be able to sense their environment, perceive the
changes and react quickly to changing conditions in order to optimize
operation and performance, diagnose faults, and protect from threats.
Papers for this special session should address the diverse challenges in
the development and deployment of autonomic management solutions
including, but not limited to:

- Self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing and self-protection
in programmable and software-defined networks
- Self-optimization for dynamic controllers and virtual network functions
- Policy-based management, including imperative, declarative (intent),
and other paradigms
- Learning and reasoning techniques for programmable networks
- Data analytics and machine learning for autonomic management
- Autonomic based service lifecycle management and orchestration
- Autonomic resource allocation and configuration in virtualized
- Adaptive scheduling in cloud computing environments

This special track is supported by the IEEE ComSoc Technical Subcommittee
on Autonomic Communications (TCAC). More information about TCAC can be
found at
