Call for Papers
IEEE Communications Magazine - Network & Service Management Series
Issue: July 2011 (submission deadline: December 1st)
IEEE Communications Magazine has been publishing a series related to Network and Service Management since 2005. The series appears twice a year: it was originally published in April and October and since 2009 it is published in July and December. The series provides articles on the latest developments in this well-established and thriving discipline. Published articles are expected to highlight recent research achievements in this field and provide insight into theoretical and practical issues related to the evolution of network and service management from different perspectives. The series provides a forum for the publication of both academic and industrial research, addressing the state of the art, theory and practice in network and service management. Both original research and review papers are welcome, in the style expected for IEEE Communications Magazine. In particular articles summarizing the results of large research projects, including PhD thesis, are suited for this series. Articles should be of tutorial nature, written in a style comprehensible to readers outside the speciality of Network and Service Management. This series therefore complements the now established IEEE Transactions on Network & Service Management (TNSM) – http://www.comsoc.org/tnsm/. General areas include but are not limited to:
* Management models, architectures and frameworks
* Network and service provisioning, reliability and quality assurance
* Management functions
* Management standards, technologies and platforms
* Management policies
* Applications, case studies and experiences
The above list is not exhaustive, with submissions related to interesting ideas broadly related to network and service management encouraged.
IEEE Communications Magazine is read by tens of thousands of readers from both academia and industry and has a 5-year impact factor of 3.3, which is amongst the highest in the field. The published papers will also be available on-line through IEEE Xplore and Communications Magazine Interactive, the WWW edition of the magazine. Details about IEEE Communications Magazine can be found at http://www.comsoc.org/ci/.
