International Workshop on Network Management and Monitoring (NetMM 2013) - March 25-28, 2013 - Sept. 15, 2012
In conjunction with the 27th IEEE AINA 2013, the NetMM 2013 workshop offers an opportunity for researchers and industrials to present their novel and innovative methodologies, techniques, tools and real-life experiences concerning next-generation network management and monitoring.
The last decade has seen a revolutionary evolution in the telecommunications (3G/4G, LTE, etc.), mobile networks (Manet, sensors, Wifi, etc.), Internet of things, etc. While deploying, configuring, operating and managing such networks become today costly and time consuming, it is expected to increase drastically in the near future. These networks tend to converge, to interwork with their own contexts and new interoperability standards. However, while there are many advantages of providing such 'hybrid' networks, their management, configuration and validation need to be addressed. Although some methodologies and tools are already processed for this purpose in wired telecommunication networks, the dynamicity, heterogeneity and complexity of these new networks make their monitoring and the validation of their components much more difficult. Low-level interfaces on a per-device basis are currently used for the management of networks. Nevertheless, in these large- scale heterogeneous mobile networks, such interfaces become complex to reach, configure and control. Furthermore, many of the existing approaches lack controllability, scalability and testability in operational networks.
Similarly, existing end-to-end monitoring applications usually depend on low- level network activity information, such as MIB parameters, interface logs, traffic counters or signatures. Therefore, a major challenge is the way of monitoring these distributed outputs to provide a global knowledge of real- time network operations and then efficiently managing these next-generation networks.
This workshop will offer an opportunity for researchers and industrials to present their novel and innovative methodologies, techniques, tools and real- life experiences concerning next-generation network management and monitoring.
The workshop solicits papers on both completed work and work-in-progress.
Papers that bring out new and interesting approaches at an early stage of their development are very welcome. The workshop will be held in conjunction with AINA 2013 which draws many leading researchers in the field of networking.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Formal models for network management
- Runtime monitoring analysis
- Monitoring and passive testing
- Automatic and adaptive control of networks
- Algorithms and protocols for distributed monitoring and threshold
- Adaptive management protocols
- Analysis of tradeoffs between performance, availability and security
- Non-intrusive network instrumentation for monitoring and control
- Resource management of multi-access networks
- Future Internet architectures for mobile network management
- Wireless cognitive networks management
- Mobile network management and virtualization
- Software engineering methodologies
- Scalable management approaches
- Management of application overlays and peer-to-peer services
- Network management standards
- Testbed, experimental and industrial evaluations
