Call for Panels

The IFIP/IEEE IM 2017 symposium will feature a number of panel discussions that offer the opportunity to engage in exchanges with subject matter experts on leading-edge and frontier topics related to Network, Service and System Management. Accordingly, IM 2017 solicits proposals and ideas for panels.  A panel proposal should indicate a brief description of the topic and why it will be of interest to the audience. Panel topics should be related to the main theme of the conference – Integrated Management in the Cloud and 5G Era – and invite diverse perspectives and challenging viewpoints. Besides opening position statements, panels should leave room for spontaneous interaction between the panelists and the audience: They may be open ended to a certain degree. In addition, a panel proposal should include a suggestion for a panel moderator (if different from the submitter) and potential panelists. If needed, the Organizing Committee can assist with the identification of additional panel members. All proposals will be evaluated by the IM 2017 Organizing Committee.
