MONAMI 2014 : 6th International Conference on Mobile Networks and Management
Conference Series : Mobile Networks and Management
Call For Papers
AIM AND SCOPE
MONAMI 2014 aims at bringing together top researchers, academics and practitioners specializing in the area of Mobile Network Management, Service Management, Virtualization and Object Management.
Multiaccess and resource management, mobility management, and network management have emerged as core topics in the design, deployment and operation of current and future networks. Yet, they are treated as separate, isolated domains with very little interaction between the experts in these fields and lack cross-pollination. Recently, new avant-garde techniques and solutions have emerged; Network Functions Virtualization, Software-Defined Networking, Network Virtualization and the Cloud Paradigm have taken roots. All in all, these techniques bring about new requirements and scientific challenges, and migration ways are required to provide a safe transition from today’s legacy systems to future systems. At the same time new wireless broadband access technologies like 5G are are posing new challenges and requirements that need to be taken.
MONAMI 2014 offers the opportunity to leading researchers, industry professionals and academics around the world to meet and discuss the latest advances in these areas and present results related to technologies for true plug-and-play networking, efficient use of all infrastructure investments, and access competition. The aim of the forum is to disseminate the latest innovative mobile network solutions for increased competition and cooperation in an environment with a multitude of access technologies, network operators and business actors.
CALL FOR PAPERS
MONAMI 2014 invites researchers to submit papers within the scope of the conference that follow either evolutionary approaches based on current IP-centered architectures or introduce revolutionary approaches and new paradigms. Papers reporting experimental and empirical studies as well as implementation/industry results (including testbeds and field trials) are also welcome.
Topics of particular interest include:
• Multiaccess networks and resource management
• Mobile network management and virtualization
• Future 5G network architecture
• Operation and management of virtualized network functions
• Mechanisms leveraging the interplay between network functions
• Virtualization and software defined networking
• Joint management and orchestration of cloud and networking infrastructure
• Future Internet architectures with smart objects
• Energy efficiency for multiaccess networks
• Emerging multimedia services, service enablers and management
• IEEE and 3GPP management standards and enabling technologies
• Design, implementation, and testbed/experimental evaluations
• Service and application management platforms
• Autonomic network monitoring and management
• Architecture and design of new services with smart objects, e.g., in smart home and ambient assisted living environments
• Energy-efficient, self-organized access and routing schemes for smart object systems
• Security solutions for managed and infrastructureless networks
• Management of wireless cognitive networks
• Traffic models and analysis for future networks
Papers accompanied by a live demonstration at the conference are actively solicited.
MONAMI 2014 is sponsored by ICST. The conference is technically cosponsored by Create-Net and is organized in association with the European Alliance for Innovation.
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNICST series, and will be archived online on SpringerLink. Selected papers may be invited to publish in
The EAI Endorsed Transactions “Mobile Communications and Applications
We encourage submissions of high-quality technical papers reporting original research that has not been previously published, and is not currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Full Papers should not exceed 14 pages in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST) format. LNICST templates are available from www.springer.com/computer?SGWID=0-146-6-564009-0.
All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers, including a TPC member to ensure high quality and relevance to the topics of the conference. All accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST series and then be included in major article indexing services.
Paper Submission Deadline: 17 April 2014
Notification of Acceptance: 15 July 2014
Camera Ready Deadline: 12 August 2014
Conference Date: 22-24 September 2014
CALL FOR TUTORIALS
We invite perspective tutorial speakers to submit relevant proposals for a half-day tutorial. The scope of the tutorial proposal should be within the interest of MONAMI attendees (see Aim and Scope and topics of interest). In addition, tutorial proposals on related and complementary topics, e.g. mobile devices or applications, smart grids or alternative energy supply are welcome. Each tutorial proposal should include the title, objectives, abstract, outline, and intended audience. A short biography of each tutorial presenter should also be submitted along with the list of conferences/events where this tutorial has been previously presented.
Please submit your proposal in electronic form to the Tutorials Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org by 17 April 2014.
