In many ways, computer network management remains the least understood aspect of computer networking. We lack well-established principles to guide the design of networks for manageability. We also lack scientific theories for analyzing the state of a network and for the evolution of network state.

The Internet Network Management (INM) workshop provides an opportunity to elevate participants' collective experience with IP networks into ideas, principles, and theories that can be leveraged in today's networks or can be carried forward into a clean-slate design of future networks that will intrinsically support management, rather than treating management as an afterthought.

The INM workshop seeks original and thought-provoking ideas, case studies, experimental results, position papers, and clean-slate designs. The workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of experience and work-in-progress discussions.


Topics of interest include:

* New abstractions for network configuration management
* New control plane architectures
* Data plane mechanisms to support management
* Management of backbone, access, enterprise, and home networks, and network-based applications
* Metrics, techniques, and experiments for evaluating network management architectures
* Experimental platforms that support network management research
* Automatic and adaptive control of networks
* Hitless planned maintenance
* Fault and performance management, diagnosis, and troubleshooting
* Data-center networking
* Network security
* Measurements and insights from network operations
* Traffic engineering and management
* Programmable network management
* Management of distributed systems and grids
* Service-oriented management
* Experience with prototype systems for network management


Submitted papers must be no longer than six 8.5" x 11" pages. Your paper should be typeset in two-column format in 10 point type on 12 point (single-spaced) leading, with the text block being no more than 6.5" wide by 9" deep. Submissions must be in PDF format and must be submitted via the Web submission form, which will be available here soon.

All papers will be available online to registered attendees before the workshop. If your accepted paper should not be published prior to the event, please notify The papers will be available online to everyone beginning on the day of the workshop, April 27, 2010.

Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the USENIX INM '10 Web site; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. USENIX, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may take action against authors who have committed them. See the USENIX Conference Submissions Policy for details. Questions? Contact your program chairs,, or the USENIX office,
