The DANMS 2011 workshop is part of a series of workshops dedicated to
advances in network management and the application of new management
principles in network design.
This year’s workshop emphasizes on “Efficient Management of Loosely
Collaborative Service Networks” where network connectivity providers,
content and service providers come together to provide high-level
services such as Over-The-Top (OTT) services to end-users in a loosely
collaborative way.
In the recent past, end-user services such as high quality video
calls, web-based video content servers, HD video streaming and VoD
services etc. have driven the telecom market. The appearance of these
new content/service providers, which include so called Over-The-Top
(OTT) service providers, has driven network usage, but also created
huge network management problems for the operators. In this context,
content/service providers together with network operators provide
value to the subscribers in a “loosely collaborative” fashion. Service
assurance in this loose collaborative environment is challenging,
particularly in the presence of a network with limited or no
guarantees. This nascent eco-system is driving fundamental changes in
how networks are deployed and managed as well as how they interact
with content and service providers. In this context, together with
wider network management contributions, we expect to have technical
contributions in the areas of automated service assurance and in
loosely collaborative service networks.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

 * Federated network management
 * Impact of Over the Top (OTT) services in resource management
 * Case studies of service assurance
 * Efficient use of terminal reports in service assurance
 * SLA for OTT service assurance
 * Service and resource modelling approaches for management
 * Business rules and organizational modelling
 * Use of semantics in service deployment and quality assurance
 * Extensions and refinements of NM standards
 * Aspects of service management and assurance
 * Automated service provisioning across multiple service providers
 * Fault and performance management, diagnosis, and troubleshooting
 * End-to-end QoS management for enterprise networks
 * Measurements and insights from network operations
 * Metrics, techniques, and experiments for evaluating network
 * Convergence of fixed and mobile networks
