Call for Papers

The 7th International Workshop on Network and System Management and Monitoring is held within the The 38th International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (AINA-2024.

--------------- CALL FOR PAPERS ----------------

In the past decade, the realm of telecommunications and mobile networks has witnessed a transformative revolution with the advent of technologies such as 3G, 4G, 5G, 6G, and more. Additionally, the integration of Manet, sensors, WiFi, and the Internet of Things (IoT) alongside Cloud services, Software-Defined Networking (SDN), and virtualized networks has brought about a new era in network communication. This paradigm shift has not only made the deployment, configuration, operation, and management of these systems increasingly complex, but also significantly costly and time-consuming.

The complexity of managing these interconnected systems is expected to escalate in the near future as they converge and strive to interoperate with their unique contexts while adhering to emerging interoperability standards. While the advantages of hybrid networks and systems are abundant, there is a pressing need to address the challenges in their management, configuration, and validation. Although some methodologies and tools have been developed for this purpose, the dynamic nature, heterogeneity, and complexity of these systems have rendered their monitoring and management more challenging.

In today’s large-scale, heterogeneous networks, managing networks using low-level interfaces on a per-device basis has become increasingly intricate. Furthermore, many existing approaches lack controllability, scalability, the ability to provide accurate measurements, and testability in operational networks. To address these issues, innovative approaches such as Software-Defined Networks (SDN), virtualized architectures (NFV), and more have been proposed. While some of these approaches have shown promise, further enhancements are necessary, especially concerning the management of distributed systems and vast data volumes.

In the same vein, existing end-to-end monitoring applications often depend on low-level network activity information. Consequently, a significant challenge lies in developing effective methods for monitoring these distributed outputs to gain a comprehensive understanding of real-time system operations and efficiently manage this diversity.
This workshop provides a unique platform for researchers and industry professionals to showcase their groundbreaking methodologies, techniques, tools, and real-world experiences related to next-generation network and system management and monitoring. The workshop invites submissions on both completed work and works-in-progress. Papers that introduce novel and intriguing approaches, even at an early stage of development, are highly encouraged.

The workshop will be held in conjunction with AINA 2024, attracting a diverse group of leading researchers in the field of networking. Join us in shaping the future of network and system management and monitoring by sharing your insights and innovations.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Future Internet architectures for system management
Automatic and adaptive control of networks
Algorithms and protocols for distributed monitoring and threshold detection
Adaptive management protocols
Non-intrusive network instrumentation for monitoring and control
Management of application overlays and peer-to-peer services
