The AIMS conference is a single-track event integrating normal conference paper sessions, tutorials, keynotes, and a PhD student workshop into a highly interactive event. One of the goals of AIMS is to look beyond borders and to stimulate the exchange of ideas across different communities and among PhD students. Furthermore, AIMS 2012 integrates 2 days of courses and labs which offers hands-on learning experiences in network and service management topics and which requires attendees to work in practical on-site courses combined with preceding short tutorial-like teaching sessions.
AIMS 2012 focuses on the theme of managing and monitoring of next-generation networks, network security and services. New paradigms as well as autonomic and fully distributed algorithms, virtualization and monitoring techniques or self-organizing overlays have to be investigated. The design, monitoring, configuration and protection of the next generation of networked systems in an efficient, secure, and autonomic manner are crucial to commercially viable and successful networks and services.
Authors are invited to submit unpublished papers (written in English) in PDF format that are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following or related topic areas:
Only original, full papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted. Each submission will be limited to 12 pages in the LNCS paper format. Papers exceeding 12 pages, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review. Paper submission is handled by the JEMS system, accessible from the AIMS 2012 Web page.
The PhD workshop is open to both PhD and prospective PhD students. Authors are invited to submit short papers (4 pages in the LNCS paper format, written in English and in PDF format) describing the current state of their research. The paper should include a clear description of the research problem and the chosen approach, argue why the problem is hard and the approach novel, and it should outline the results achieved to date. Specific, low-level technical details should be avoided. Papers should have no more than two authors - the student and the advisor. Accepted submissions will be published in the AIMS 2012 proceedings.
The program committee will select one paper for the Best Paper Award (all regular papers are eligible). The winner will be presented at the conference.
