The 15th IFIP/IEEE Symposium on Integrated Network and Service Management (IM 2017) will be held 8-12 May 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal. Held in odd-numbered years since 1989, IM 2017 follows the 29 years’ tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE Communications Society’s forum for technical exchange on management of information and communication technology focusing on research, development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities.
IM 2017 will focus on the theme “Integrated Management in the Cloud and 5G Era”, presenting recent, emerging approaches and technical solutions for dealing with 5G and cloud infrastructures, as well as associated services and applications. In addition to this edition theme, IM 2017 will keep a wide range of topics of interest within the field in integrated network and service management, as listed below.
