The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on
Management of Emerging Networks and Services (IEEE MENS 2011)

in conjunction with IEEE GLOBECOM 2011, 5-9 December, Houston, Texas, USA

CALL FOR PAPER [TXT] [PDF]   

More recently, requirements in network management and control have been amended by emerging network and computing models and emerging network services, including wireless sensor networks, ad hoc networks, overlay networks, grid networks, optical networks, multimedia networks, storage networks, the convergence of next generation networks (NGN) or even nano‐networks etc. Increasingly ubiquitous network environments require new management strategies, which can cope with resource constraints, multi‐federated operations, scalability, dependability, context awareness, security, mobility and probability etc. To bring complex network systems under control, it is necessary for the IT industry to move to autonomic management, autonomic features in both the data and control planes of the network, context‐aware management and self‐management systems in which technology itself is used to manage technology. New theoretical approaches are needed in resolving the challenging problems in network management including network architectural reference models that incorporate autonomic and self‐management principles. This workshop will provide a forum to researchers to propose theories and technologies on the management of emerging networks and services, share their experience of IT and telecommunications industries and discuss future management solutions for emerging networks and services.
