Call For Papers

The Sixth International Conference on Network and Service Management is the premier annual conference in the general area of network and services management. Built upon the success starting in 2005 to collocate six management workshops within the same week (MANWEEK), this year we debut the single main conference. This consolidates and covers the scope of several workshops that explore various aspects of the management of networks and services. This includes: the International Workshop on Distributed Systems: Operations and Management (DSOM), the International Conference on Management of Multimedia and Mobile Networks and Services (MMNS), the International Workshop on IP Operations and Management (IPOM), the 6th International Workshop on Next Generation Networking Middleware (NGNM), and the International Workshop on End-to-end Virtualization and Grid Management (EVGM).

This year's theme is "Managing the Virtual Enterprise", a theme based on the following two trends. First, organizations are increasingly relying on third parties for services and infrastructure. Second, as we move towards an unprecedented global integration of business and social processes, systems must interact in ways with unprecedented fashions. These trends have fuelled interests in service-oriented architectures (SOA) as well as in cloud infrastructures for hosting third-party services. These trends have also placed various challenges on management. For cloud providers, how to dynamically allocate resources and take into account SLAs and energy concerns in a cloud scale? For service providers, how to provide trust and satisfy privacy requirements to enable interactions between services? For consumer organizations, how to provide mobile devices so that the mobile workforce can access the content any place and any time? For application developers, how to understand the relationship between applications, services and networks in order to develop reliable management software and techniques?
