Call For Papers
The 17th IFIP/IEEE Symposium on Integrated Network and Service Management (IM 2021) will be held on May 17-21, 2021, in Bordeaux, France. Held in odd-numbered years since 1989, IM 2021 follows the 33 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 2021 will focus on the theme of “Intelligent Management of Open and Highly Programmable Networks”. It aims to capture recent results, emerging approaches and technical solutions for dealing with resilience and sustainability of network and service management in highly dynamic environments. Furthermore, the sudden and important uptake of work-from-home and the promise of the post-digital era are rising new challenges and exacerbating the dynamic nature of the communication infrastructure, pushing additional requirements on networks in terms of quality, resilience and sustainability. This is also accelerating the adoption of Artificial Intelligence advances along with the openness and programmability of network infrastructures, to make these more flexible and adaptive. In addition to this theme, IM 2021 will cover a wide range of topics of interest within the field in integrated network and service management. IM 2021 will offer five types of sessions: technical, experience, poster, panel and dissertation. High quality will be assured through a well-qualified Technical Program Committee and stringent peer review of paper submissions.
