                    8-12 April 2019, Washington DC, USA

=============Important dates ====================

Technical paper submission deadline: August 19, 2018
Notification of Acceptance: November 15, 2018

PLEASE NOTE: Conference dates and timelines are about a month earlier than
for previous editions of IM. Please plan accordingly.  

================= Overview ======================

The 16th IFIP/IEEE Symposium on Integrated Network and Service Management (IM 2019) will be held?8-12 April 2019 in Washington DC, USA. Held in odd-numbered years since?1989, IM 2019 follows the 31 years tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE Communications Society
¡¯s?forum for technical exchange on management of information and communication technology focusing on research,?development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities.

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.

IM 2019 will offer five types of?sessions: technical, experience, poster, panel and dissertation. High quality will be assured through a well-qualified Technical Program Committee and stringent peer review of paper submissions.
A special call for demonstrations is?organized to allow industry partners and researchers to demonstrate early products and prototypes.
