IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2012, Maui, Hawaii, USA 16-20 April 2012


The 13th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2012) will be held 16-20 April 2012 at The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, Maui, Hawaii, USA. Held in even-numbered years since 1988, NOMS 2012 will follow the 24 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. NOMS 2012 will focus on the theme "Managing the Next Wave of Information and Communications Technologies," presenting recent, emerging approaches and technical solutions for dealing with future network and ICT infrastructures, as well as with novel services provided on top of these infrastructures.

NOMS 2012 will offer five types of sessions: technical, application, poster, panel, and Dissertation Digest. Technical sessions will present high-quality papers on the latest research results in the network operations and management area. Application sessions will include papers focusing on experiences in the IT and telecommunications industries, including but not limited to service providers, OSS vendors, and equipment manufacturers. The application session scope includes customer/user requirements, management system implementations, and business practices. Poster sessions will provide insights into work-in-progress and rapidly evolving hot topics. Panel sessions will focus on business implications, market trends, and emerging applications with panelists who are the technology and business leaders. Dissertation Digest Sessions will select and award the best Ph.D. work in the area of Network and Service management. High quality will be assured through a well qualified Technical Program Committee and stringent peer review of paper submissions.

Authors are invited to submit original contributions (written in English) in PDF format through the NOMS 2012 web site. Only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted. Each submission will be limited to 8 pages (full papers) or 4 pages (short papers) in IEEE 2-column style. Papers exceeding these limits, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review.
