           6th International Conference on Network and Service Management

                               Niagara Falls, Canada

The 6th International Conference on Network and Service Management (CNSM 
2010) is a premier annual conference, sponsored by IEEE COMPSOC and IFIP, 
in the general area of network, systems, and services management.  Built 
upon the success starting in 2005 to collocate six management workshops 
within the same week (MANWEEK), this year we debut the single main 
conference with a single track. The integrated conference provides a 
unique opportunity to showcase both premier research results and 
innovative cross-disciplinary explorations. As an open forum, we encourage 
authors to explore new ideas and to boost the synergy among distinctive 
but strongly correlated areas.

Topics of interest include:

     Service and Business Management

       Distributed systems operations and management

       Application management (context-aware, enterprise, healthcare)
