Special Track on Data Centric Cloud and Network Management

Cloud and network analytics can harness the immense stream of operational data from clouds and networks, and can perform analytics processing---possibly in-network, possibly in real-time---to improve fault, performance, and security management. As the premier venue on network and cloud management, IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2014) debuts a special track on Data Centric Cloud and Network Management to be held in Krakow, Poland, 5-9 May 2014.  As part of the main technical sessions, this special track will provide a dedicated and timely venue for presenting and publishing the latest results in cloud and network analytics.

Topics include:  
  •  Networks and cloud analytics
  •  Social data for management
  •  Analyzing logs and operational data for management tasks
  •  Data-centric management of clouds and software defined networks  
  •  Data-centric management of virtualized infrastructure
  •  Data-centric data center management
  •  Storage systems and networks
  •  Real-time analytics
  •  Data mining and machine learning for management
  •  Statistical modeling, queueing theory, control theory, and optimization for management

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit original contributions written in English that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers must be formatted using the IEEE 2-column format and not exceed 8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers (excluding references). All papers should be submitted through JEMS at https://jems.sbc.org.br/noms2014-data_centric_management.

To be published in the IEEE NOMS 2014 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions.  Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper.  For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers.  Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE NOMS 2014 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.
