"Integrated Management in the Age of Big Data"


The  14th  IFIP/IEEE  International Symposium  on  Integrated Network 
(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 
Society's forum  for   technical   exchange  on    management   of 
information  and
communication   technology   focusing   on    research, development,   
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 


We would like to highlight the four Keynote Addresses confirmed so far:
