Call for Papers [PDF]
MONAMI 2014 invites researchers to submit papers within the scope of the conference that follow either evolutionary approaches based on current IP-centered architectures or introduce revolutionary 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:
- Multiaccess networks and resource management
- Mobile network management and virtualization
- Future 5G network architecture
- Operation and management of virtualized network functions
- Mechanisms leveraging the interplay between network functions virtualization and software defined networking
- Joint management and orchestration of cloud and networking infrastructure
- Future Internet architectures with smart objects
- Energy efficiency for multiaccess networks
- Emerging multimedia services, service enablers and management
- IEEE and 3GPP management standards and enabling technologies
- Design, implementation, and testbed/experimental evaluations
- Service and application management platforms
- Autonomic network monitoring and management
- Architecture and design of new services with smart objects, e.g., in smart home and ambient assisted living environments
- Energy-efficient, self-organized access and routing schemes for smart object systems
- Security solutions for managed and infrastructureless networks
- Management of wireless cognitive networks
- Traffic models and analysis for future networks
Papers accompanied by a live demonstration at the conference are actively solicited.
MONAMI 2014 is sponsored by ICST. The conference is technically co-sponsored by Create-Net and is organized in association with the European Alliance for Innovation.
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNICST series, and will be archived online on SpringerLink. Selected papers may be invited to publish in the [EAI Endorsed Transactions Mobile Communications and Applications](http://eai.eu/transaction/mobile-communications-and-applications)
Special Session on Software Defined Networking (SDN)
Software Defined Networking (SDN) marks a paradigm shift in networking by the separation of the control and forwarding plane in network elements allowing programmability based on a centralized view on the network. In particular, mobile networks benefit from the new concept introduced by SDN and related concepts such as network virtualization and network function virtualization based on cloud technologies.
As part of the main conference program a Special Session grouping papers on this topic will be organized. Submissions shall target one (or more) of the following aspects of SDN:
- SDN in Mobile Networks
- Mobile Network Function Virtualization
- Cloudification of Network Functions
- SDN based network management
- Orchestration of IT and telecommunication networks and resources
- SDN based mobile network applications
- Performance aspects and measurements
- Standardization and testbed activities
We encourage submissions of high-quality technical papers reporting original research that has not been previously published, and is not currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Full Papers should not exceed **14 pages** in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST) format. See [Author's Kit](http://mon-ami.org/2014/show/authors-kit) for more information.
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.
