Please note that TECHNICAL papers that are registered before deadline of midnight 13th September GMT will have until midnight Wednesday GMT 15th September to upload the final paper.

The 12th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM 2011) will be held on 23 – 27 May 2011 at Trinity College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland. The IM series of conferences has been held in odd-numbered years since 1989 (taking turns with its sibling conference NOMS), and has established itself as the main venue for original research in the area of management, operations and control of networks, networking services, networked applications, and distributed systems.

Integrated management of networked systems and services is facing new challenges, stemming from difficult economic conditions and increasing environmental considerations. More than ever cost effective and energy efficient management strategies have become critical issues for all kinds of enterprises. The resulting demands for such management must be met in an environment of increasingly distributed and decentralized service provisioning and accelerated service lifecycles, often across organizational boundaries and over multi-vendor platforms. The theme of ‘Effective and Energy Efficient Management of Networks and Services' encapsulates the challenge faced by the community in moving to Next Generation Networks and Services Management solutions.

This symposium is once again sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 6.6 on Management of Networks and Distributed Systems, and by the IEEE Communications Society Technical Committee on Network Operations and Management (CNOM). The conference will feature: Technical Sessions; Invited and Keynote Speakers; Application sessions; Panels; Birds-of-a-feather sessions; Tutorials; Satellite Workshops and an Industrial experience track.

We invite authors to submit original contributions, written in English. Please note, that only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted. In addition, papers that do not conform to the requested format, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review process. Details and links to templates will be available on the conference web site athttp://www.ieee-im.org/authors.html.
