Call for Papers IEEE/IFIP International Workshop on Management of the Future Internet
May 5, 2014 in Krakow, Poland The Sixth IEEE/IFIP International Workshop on Management of the Future Internet (ManFI 2014) will be held in conjunction with the IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2014) in Krakow, Poland, May 5-9, 2014. The workshop is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society and is endorsed by the Technical Committee on Network Operations and Management (CNOM) and by the EU FP7 Flamingo Network of Excellence research project. Following the success of the previous editions of this workshop, the main goal of the workshop is to present state-of-the-art research results and experience reports in the area of Future Internet Management, addressing amongst others currently important topics such as efficient network and service monitoring for the Future Internet, management of virtualized networks and services, management of IaaS, PaaS, SaaS offerings, content-aware and information-centric networks, management of software defined networks, federated management of the Future Internet, and economic based network and service management. ManFI 2014 will combine original full paper presentations with a motivating keynote, quick hot topic presentations and a panel discussion. Furthermore, the workshop attendees will be stimulated to participate in interesting discussions amongst the attendees, such that all participants can take home lots of ideas for consideration in their ongoing research projects or start new research projects to address the challenging topics. To this end, short papers describing late-breaking advances and work-in-progress reports from ongoing research are also welcome.
