The CNSM 2010 workshops invite researchers and practitioners to share and discuss their ongoing works, research and practical development experiences, and original results on specific new challenges and emerging trends in relation to the management of networks and services.
We welcome your contributions and look forward to your participations at CNSM 2010 workshops.
Workshops date: October 28-29, 2010
Please refer to the workshops websites for more details on the deadlines and other important dates.
The 1st International Workshop on Network Embedded Management and Applications
Alexander Clemm, Cisco Systems, USA
Ralf Wolter, Cisco Systems, Germany
NEMA 2010 is dedicated to the topic of network-embedded management and applications. It explores how the new emerging infrastructure of network devices that are programmable can best be leveraged and the related research questions this poses. One trend points towards systems that are increasingly autonomous and to a certain degree self-managing. The next frontier lies in applications that go beyond traditional management and control functions and that are becoming increasingly decentralized, not constrained in scope to individual systems. At the same time, another trend looks at utilizing increased programmability of networks to add more networking intelligence outside, not inside the network. The goal of NEMA 2010 is to provide a platform at which researchers and practitioners can discuss the latest trends and ongoing research in network-embeddable applications and contrast different emerging approaches of how to best leverage increased network programmability.
The 5th International Workshop on Modelling Autonomic Communication Environments
Brendan Jennings, TSSG, Ireland
Sven van der Meer, TSSG, WIT, Ireland
MACE 2010 will focus on the use of information and data modelling, as well as knowledge representation and inferencing, to represent adaptive and self-aware devices, systems, and networks. MACE addresses current and future network management by focusing on how to represent and use knowledge to provide adaptive, context-aware management, to learn and adjust to user and environmental behaviour, and to orchestrate services using context-aware policy-based management systems, which use modelled knowledge to dynamically generate code to automatically reconfigure network elements in response to changing context. The 2010 MACE workshop will continue to provide a platform for discussing latest trends, work-in-progress as well as demonstrations, evaluations and simulations.
The 4th International DMTF Academic Alliance Workshop on Systems and Virtualization Management: Standards and the Cloud
Mark Carlson, Oracle, USA
Michelle Sibilla, IRIT, Paul Sabatier University, France
Kes Wold, Wold Consulting, USA
With the advent and increasing popularity of Cloud Computing, systems management and virtualization management technology has taken on increasing importance. The goal of SVM 2010 is to illuminate related standards and research issues, covering areas such as: what are the implications of standards for virtualization in Cloud Computing, what advances in information models and protocols aid in managing Clouds, what new problems will we incur when managing Cloud offerings and services, and how management itself might benefit from virtualization and the Cloud. Submissions on topics related to managing Clouds, virtualization of distributed resources/services and work in management standardization are thus particularly encouraged.
