"Integrated Management in the Age of Big Data"


The 14th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network
(IM 2015) will be held 11-15 May 2015 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and
hosted by
the Ottawa Convention Centre. Held in odd-numbered years since 1989,
IM 2015
follows the 27 years tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE
Society's forum for technical exchange on management of
information and
communication technology focusing on research, development,
standards, service provisioning, and user communities. IM 2015 will
focus on the
theme "Integrated Management in the Age of Big Data"
presenting recent,
emerging approaches and technical solutions for dealing with Big Data
as well as
using it for management solutions. IM 2015 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


We would like to highlight the four Keynote Addresses confirmed so far:
