MANWEEK 2009 (Deadline extension)
Telecom Italia Future Centre, Venice - Italy
OCTOBER 26-30, 2009


We cordially invite you to submit papers to MANWEEK 2009. MANWEEK 2009 is the fifth in a series of events that was established in 2005, and will bring together leading figures from academia and industry to present and discuss the latest advances in management of networks and services. The Scientific Programme will include presentations given by leading invited speakers, as well as presentations based upon refereed papers selected by the International Programme Committee. The conference will take place at the Future Centre in Campo San Salvador close to Rialto. Rialto is an area of the San Polo sestiere of Venice, Italy, known for its markets and for the Rialto Bridge. The area was settled by the ninth century, when a small area in the middle of the Realtine Islands either side of the Rio Businiacus was known as the Rivoaltus, the "high bank". Soon, the Businiacus became known as the Grand Canal, and the district became the Rialto, referring only to the area on the left bank. The Rialto became an important district in 1097. The market grew, both as a retail and as a wholesale market. Warehouses were built, including the famous Fondaco dei Tedeschi on the other side of the bridge. Meanwhile, shops selling luxury goods, banks and insurance agencies appeared and the city’s tax offices were located in the area. The city’s abattoir was also in the Rialto. Most of the buildings in the Rialto were destroyed in a fire in 1514, the sole survivor being the Church of San Giacomo di Rialto, while the rest of the area was gradually rebuilt. The Fabriche Vecchie dates from this period, while the Fabbriche Nuove is only slightly more recent, dating from 1553.

Manweek 2009 will be supported by a comprehensive social programme, including a Welcome Reception, a Conference Banquet and a social event.
