MONAMI 2009

Call for Papers


First International ICST Conference on Mobile Networks And Management


MONAMI 2009

13-14 October, 2009

Athens, Greece


Aim and Scope

MONAMI 2009 aims at bringing together top researchers, academics and practitioners specializing in the area of Mobile Network Management (MNM).

Multiaccess and resource management, mobility management, and network management have emerged as core topics in the design, deployment and operation of current and future networks. Yet, they are treated as separate, isolated domains with very little interaction between the experts in these fields and lack cross-pollination. MONAMI 2009 offers the opportunity to leading researchers, industry professionals and academics around the world to meet and discuss the latest advances in these areas and present results related to technologies for true plug-and-play networking, efficient use of all infrastructure investments, and access competition. The aim of the forum is to disseminate the latest innovative mobile network solutions for increased competition and cooperation in an environment with a multitude of access technologies, network operators and business actors.

MONAMI 2009 invites papers that follow either evolutionary approaches based on current IP-centered architectures or introduce revolutionary MNM approaches and new paradigms. Papers reporting experimental and empirical studies as well as implementation/industry results (including testbeds and field trials) are also welcome.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to, the following:



Paper Submission

We encourage submission of high-quality technical papers reporting original material that is has not been previously published, or is not currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Full Papers should not exceed 12 pages in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST) style and must be submitted by 17 May 2009. Short papers of up to 8 pages, reporting most current results, are also solicited.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers, including a TPC member to ensure high quality and relevance to the topics of the Conference. All accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST series and then be included in major article indexing services.
