It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 16th IFIP/IEEE International symposium on Integrated Network Management, IM 2019, to be held on 8-12 April 2019 in Washington, DC, USA.
Held in odd-numbered years since 1988, IM 2019 will follow the 30 years tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE Communications Society's forum for technical exchange on the management of information and communication technology focusing on research, development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities. IM 2019 will offer various types of sessions: technical, experience, demo, poster, and panel. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry which provides a multidisciplinary trend-setting forum to explore the hottest areas of information and communications technology management related to industry, academia, government, enterprise and other market segments from around the world. IM 2018 will also present up-to-date approaches and technical solutions for novel management paradigms to deal with the new management issues in future infrastructures. In IM 2019, you will be able to network with friends, colleagues, customers, and vendors from around the world.
IM 2019 will focus on the theme “Intelligent Management for the Next Wave of Cyber and Social Networks”, reflecting the increasing convergence of both technical network infrastructure and infrastructure for social interactions as well as the emergence of new waves of communications technology involving areas as varied as cyber-physical systems, ultra-low latency services, and converged management and control planes. In addition to this theme, IM 2019 will cover a wide range of topics of interest within the field in integrated network and service management.
We look to grow the participation of companies and exhibitors in the growing areas of Cyber, Social Networks, and Intelligent management, as well as increase the participation of the expanding user and enterprise communities within the greater Washington, DC area, the Americas, and the world.
Washington, D.C. is the capital of the United States of America and the seat of its three branches of government, as well as the federal district of the U.S. The city has an unparalleled collection of free, public museums and many of the nation's most treasured monuments and memorials.
