About the Workshop:
More recently, requirements in network management and control have been amended by emerging network and computing models, including wireless sensor networks, ad hoc networks, overlay networks, Grid networks, optical networks, multimedia networks, storage networks, the convergence of next generation networks (NGN) or even nanonetworks etc. Increasingly ubiquitous network environments require new management strategies, which can cope with resource constraints, multi-federated operations, scalability, dependability, context awareness, security, mobility and probability etc. To bring complex network systems under control, it is necessary for the IT industry to move to autonomic management, context-aware management and self-management systems in which technology itself is used to manage technology. New theoretical approaches are needed in resolving the challenging problems in network management. This workshop will provide a forum to researchers to propose theories and techniques !
on the management of emerging networks, share their experience of IT and telecommunications industries and discuss future management solutions for emerging networks.

Guidelines for Submission:
Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review in any other conference or journal, and has not been previously published. All papers will be reviewed and accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, published in IEEE Explorer. Authors should prepare a PDF file following the IEEE single-spaced, double-column pages using the IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates: The cover page must contain an abstract of about 150 words, 3-5 keywords, name and affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail and postal address. Papers are restricted to a maximum length of 8 pages, including text, figures, references, and appendices, and must be submitted electronically through the EDAS system ( Authors of selected outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration of publication in a special issue.
