                 "Smart Management in a Virtualized World"

The 13th IFIP/IEEE Symposium on Integrated Network and Service Management
(IM 2013) will be held 27-31 May 2013 at Ghent University, Belgium. Held in
odd-numbered years since 1989, IM 2013 follows the 25 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 2013 will focus on the theme
"Smart Management in a Virtualized World" presenting recent, emerging
approaches and technical solutions for dealing with future cloud, network
and ICT infrastructures, as well as with novel services provided on top of
these infrastructures. IM 2013 will offer five types of sessions:
technical, application, poster, panel and dissertation digest. High quality
will be assured through a well qualified Technical Program Committee and
stringent peer review of paper submissions. A special call for
demonstrations is organized to allow industry partners and researchers to
demonstrate early products and prototypes.


Authors are invited to submit papers that fall into or are related to the
topic areas that are listed below. In addition, we invite submissions of
proposals for demonstrations, exhibits, technical panels, tutorials,
workshops, and application session papers.

review. The authors of the IM 2013 top papers will be encouraged to extend
their work and submit to IEEE TNSM (IEEE Transactions on Network and
Service Management. These extended papers will undergo the normal TNSM
peer-review process.
