Call for Papers

DANMS 2008

3rd International Workshop on Distributed Autonomous Network
Management Systems
Co-located with Globecom 2008, New Orleans, USA
30 November, 2008


The DANMS workshop series focuses on distributed and autonomous
principles for network management and applications of those
principles in network design. This year's workshop emphasizes Service
Centric Network Management considering the impact on the system,
across the whole information flow from service creation to deployment
in the network.

This workshop is looking for full papers describing original,
previously unpublished research work, experimental efforts, practical
experiences with existing systems and industrial developments in the
field of autonomous network management. Papers with a deep focus on a
specific discipline or stimulated by the synergistic interaction of
diverse disciplines are encouraged.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics of interest:

Architecture and Systems Topics relating to Autonomic Networks
       * Cross-layer system architecture design
       * Middleware and O&M techniques for network management
       * Resource modeling approaches for network management
       * Peer-to-peer techniques for autonomic network management
       * Scalability issues in network management
       * Security aspects in network management

Autonomic Techniques
       * Adaptive & context-based self-management in networks
       * Policy (refinement techniques, policy models)
       * Knowledge based techniques to support autonomics
       * Data management for real-time dynamic service provisioning
       * Real-time MIB engineering to provide cross-layer provisioning

Aspects of Service Management
       * Use of semantics to enable service deployment and composition
       * Automated service composition and orchestration
       * Automated service provisioning across multiple service providers

Case Studies in Existing & Emerging Networks
       * Lessons, shortcomings and real world experiences with existing network management systems, protocols and architectures.
       * Experiences with service deployment in challenged networks (ad-hoc, pervasive, sensor etc.) and the implications on the network management plane
