             "Integrated Management in the Age of Big Data"


The  14th  IFIP/IEEE  Symposium  on  Integrated  Network  and  Service
Management (IM 2015)  will be held 11-15 May 2015  in Ottawa, Ontario,
Canada  and  hosted   by  the  Ottawa  Convention   Centre.   Held  in
odd-numbered years since 1989, IM  2015 follows the 27 years tradition
of NOMS and IM as the  primary IEEE Communications Society's forum for
technical  exchange on  management  of  information and  communication
technology focusing on  research, development, integration, standards,
service provisioning, and user communities.  IM 2015 will focus on the
theme  "Integrated  Management in  the  Age  of Big  Data"  presenting
recent, emerging  approaches and technical solutions  for dealing with
Big Data  as well as using  it for management solutions.  IM 2015 will
offer five types of sessions: technical, experience, poster, panel and
dissertation. High  quality will be  assured through a  well qualified
Technical  Program  Committee  and  stringent  peer  review  of  paper
submissions. A special  call for demonstrations is  organized to allow
industry partners  and researchers  to demonstrate early  products and


Authors are invited to submit papers  that fall into or are related to
the  topic  areas that  are  listed  below.   In addition,  we  invite
submissions  of  proposals  for  demonstrations,  exhibits,  technical
panels, tutorials and workshops. Papers  can be submitted as technical
session  full  papers,  technical  session  short  papers,  experience
session papers and dissertation papers.
