                   Call for Experience Session Papers

The 14th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management

                     Ottawa, Canada, 11-15 May 2015

               (Paper Submission Date: 15 September 2014)


The 14th IFIP/IEEE Symposium on Integrated Network and Service Management
(IM 2015) will be held 11-15 May 2015 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada at the
Ottawa Convention Centre. Held in odd-numbered years since 1989, IM 2015
follows the 27 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 2015
will focus on the theme "Integrated Management in the Age of Big Data"
presenting recent, emerging approaches and technical solutions for dealing
with Big Data as well as using it for management solutions. IM 2015 will
offer five types of sessions: technical, experience, poster, panel and
dissertation digest. The goal of the Experience Session program is to
complement the Technical Sessions with contributions that emphasize
practical experiences and lessons learned in applying, implementing, and
deploying management technology. They will focus on aspects such as
real-world deployment scenarios, experiences with the management of new
services and technology, industrial applications of management technology,
implementation examples of new management technology, organizational
impact, and business cases.
