Call For Papers

The 13th Asia-Pacific Network Operations and Management Symposium

Sponsored by KICS KNOM, IEICE ICM 

September 21-23 2011, Taipei, Taiwan

The deployment of next-generation networks (NGN) and the trial of fixed-mobile 
convergence (FMC) services are in progress. We expect to see more and more FMC 
and content-based services coming to the market. In addition, emerging 
technologies like LTE and WiMAX will support wireless broadband services 
within the next two years. In addition, research in the management and 
architecture of future Internet(s) is gaining increasing importance. The rapid 
evolution mentioned above hinges on new network infrastructure, business and 
service models, and associated management platforms and architectures. APNOMS 
2011 will encourage open discussions on technology alternatives that focus on 
the management and operation of current and future networks and services.

English, which are not under review in any other conference or journal. 
Submission should be in form of a PDF file up to 8 pages, prepared in 
accordance with IEEE author guidelines (see Manuscript Guidelines page for 
details). The copyright of accepted papers will be transferred to IEEE. IEEE 
will own the copyright of each paper.

Innovation Session: 
APNOMS 2011 will include innovation sessions to present and discuss ongoing 
research, work-in-progress ideas, practical solutions, and experimental 
studies. Authors are requested to submit PDF documents up to 8 pages long in a
