Call For Papers
The 17th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2020) will be held 20-24 April 2020 at Budapest, Hungary. Held in even-numbered years since 1988, NOMS 2020 will follow the 32 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. The theme of NOMS 2020 will be Management in the Age of Softwarization and Artificial Intelligence presenting recent, emerging approaches and technical solutions for dealing with management of Fixed Networks, Mobile Networks, Clouds, and Vertical Systems (e.g., smart cities and smart transportations, etc.) in order to enable convergence of the networked services. NOMS 2020 will offer various types of sessions: keynotes, technical, experience, demo, tutorial, poster, panel, and dissertation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
