Call for Papers (.PDF)

In many ways, computer network management remains the least understood aspect of computer networking. There is a lack of well-established principles for guiding the design of networks for manageability. There is also a lack of scientific theories for analyzing the state of a network and for the evolution of network state.

The Internet Network Management (INM) workshop provides an opportunity to elevate participants' collective experience with IP networks into ideas, principles, and theories that can be leveraged in today's networks, or can be carried forward into the clean-slate design of future networks that intrinsically support management, rather than treating management as a bolted-on afterthought.

The INM workshop seeks original and thought provoking ideas, case studies, experimental results, position papers, and clean-slate designs. Submissions concerning special-purpose networks, such as VoIP, content distribution, or mobile wireless networks are welcome. The workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of experience and work-in-progress discussions.
