IM 2011 includes the Dissertation Digest Session in Network and Service Management in the technical program. The Dissertation Digest Session in Network and Service Management was introduced in IM 2009. After its successful launch, the Dissertation Digest Session will once again be an integral part of 12th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM 2011), which will be held from 23rd to 27th May 2011 in Dublin, Ireland.

The goal of the Dissertation Digest Sessions is to select and award the best Ph.D. work in the area of Network and Service management. The session intends to support and promote young researchers in the area of network and service management, where obtaining the award will help enhance opportunities for future academic careers (Postdoctoral research positions). This will also allow recent PhD graduated (or defended) students to communicate their research to a wide audience, consisting of experts and professionals from industry and academia, and to receive high quality feedback that can support future research. The sessions will also highlight advisor’s guidance on the Ph.D works.
