Call For Papers

The AIMS international conference is a single-track event, including conference paper sessions, hands-ons and
keynotes. The focus of AIMS is on early research done by Ph.D. students and young researchers in network and
service management and security. The participants find here a dedicated place for getting a constructive feedback by
senior scientists and they benefit from tutorials on transversal aspects of a research activity (e.g., publication
strategies, paper reviewing, research presentation design). By taking part in a dedicated workshop, the Ph.D. students
are invited at an early stage to present and motivate their work as well as their research plans. Finally, by being
involved in practical hands-on sessions, Ph.D. students and young researchers will get an up-to-date knowledge
combined with basic skills on emerging technologies. This way, AIMS acts as a complementary piece in the set of
international conferences in the network and service management community.

AIMS 2016 will be centered on the theme of management and security in the age of hyperconnectivity. New
paradigms, smart and fully distributed algorithms, as well as large-scale virtualization have to be investigated to design
scalable and resilient frameworks able to deal with more complex, more dynamic and hyperconnected environments,
from cloud infrastructures to the Internet of Things. The design, monitoring, configuration and protection of the next
generation of networked systems in an efficient, secure, and smart manner are crucial to commercially viable and
successful networks and services.

Authors are invited to submit papers on the following topics, including related fields:
Network and service management

Wireless networks (adhoc, mesh, sensor, vehicular, ...)
Internet of things
Smart cities
Smart grids
Cyber-physical networks
Overlay, grid and virtual networks
Big data Analytics
Software defined networks
Data centers and clouds (Iaas, Paas and SaaS)
Content delivery (P2P, CDN, ICN, ...)
Social networks
Future Internet

Management functions

Intrusion detection
Protection against Smart Attacks / Advanced Persistent Threats (APT)
Protection of infrastructures and services
Security management
Configuration management
Accounting of systems, services and behaviors
Economic traffic management
Service provisioning
Resilience of management infrastructures and services
Privacy and management data
Quality of service and experience

Techniques and Methodologies

Autonomic and self-management
Cognitive management
Distributed monitoring and correlation
Risk management
Knowledge plane design and deployment
P2P-based management
Modeling of management technologies and procedures
Flow based management
Scalability of management infrastructures
Experimental studies


The conference proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes of Computer Science (LNCS) series and will include the conference papers as well as the PhD workshop papers. Tutorial materials will be distributed to participants at the conference.
