"Towards Management of Future Networks and Services"


The 12th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2010) will be held 19-23 April 2010 at the Osaka International Convention Center, Osaka, Japan. Held in even-numbered years since 1988, NOMS 2010 will follow the 22 years tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE Communications Society forum for technical exchange on network and service management focusing on research, development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities. NOMS 2010 will present up-to-date approaches and technical solutions for novel management paradigms to deal with the new management issues in future infrastructures such as Web 2.0 or beyond service environments, cloud computing platforms, large-scale datacenters, and the Future Internet, as well targeting the conventional issues in large and complex services, systems, and networks.

NOMS 2010 will offer four types of sessions: technical, application, poster, and panel sessions. 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 the experience in IT and telecommunications industries, such as service providers, OSS vendors, and equipment manufacturers. The scope here includes customer requirements, management system implementations, and business practices. Poster sessions provide an insight into work-in-progress. Panel sessions will focus on business implications, market trends, and emerging applications with panelists who are the technology and business leaders.

Authors are invited to submit papers that fall into or are related to the topic areas that are listed below. In addition, we invite submissions of proposals for technical panels, tutorials, workshops, and application session papers.
