FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM"
The Seventh IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM 2001) will be held on 14-18 May 2001 in Seattle, Washington, USA. The symposium is sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 6.6 on Network Management for Communication Networks, and by the IEEE Communications Society Technical Committee on Network Operations and Management (CNOM). IM (tm) and the Network Operations and Management Symposia (NOMS) are the premier technical conferences in the area of network and systems management, operations and control.
IM 2001 will build upon the successes of IM and NOMS each year since 1988, in serving as the primary forum for technical exchange for the research, standards, development, systems integrator, vendor and user communities in the area of network and distributed systems management, operations and control.
At the dawn of the new millennium, the ubiquitous explosion of the Internet and the fast proliferation of networked devices and business applications create a unique challenge for the network management community. Innovative solutions are required for managing the sheer numbers of devices and the complexity of applications. Further, new ways of strategic thinking must be incorporated in future management products and services to ensure a smooth transition to the new networked society. Management in this new information era will need to support the integration of data and telecommunications networks, from narrowband to broadband, terrestrial to satellite, fixed to mobile and uni-media to multi-media. The IM 2001 conference provides a forum for discussion of new paradigms and architectures (or new spins on old ones) that can deal with the many management issues related to these next-generation networks.
This symposium, along with NOMS, is the premier annual event where the latest research and industrial solutions for integrated management of networks and distributed systems are presented in technical sessions, tutorials, and vendor exhibits. IM 2001 introduces a new track of industrial experience to permit the sharing of the lessons learnt from case studies by the user or vendor community.
The IM 2001 symposium will provide the highest quality professional event of the year through active participation on the Program Committee of many of the most respected people in the fields of network and distributed systems management, and a stringent review process.
