CALL FOR DISSERTATION DIGEST PAPERS
The 17th IFIP/IEEE Symposium on Integrated Network and Service Management (IM 2021) will be held on May 17-21, 2021, in Bordeaux, France. Held in odd-numbered years since 1989, IM 2021 follows the 33 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 IM 2021 Dissertation Digest focuses on PhD dissertations finished recently, especially within the December 1, 2018 to November 30, 2020 time frame. Suitable content and topics fall into the exact same range as for the main symposium’s list of topics, cf. This digest can be considered an extended abstract of the thesis and must be limited to six pages, while the digest’s structure is very close to a regular paper.
In addition, this digest needs to add in the text and reference section a reference to a Web link for the full PhD thesis. Furthermore, the list of journal, conference, and workshops papers, published as part of the PhD work, have to be included in the digest paper’s reference section, too. Note that the authors of a digest will be only the (ex-)student and his/her supervisor(s). The dissertation digest co-chairs may request evidence of the defense or approval of the thesis for each submission before it can be accepted finally.
Only PDF submissions will be considered for review and they shall be uploaded to the JEMS system at this address : https://jems.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=3683
PAPER FORMATING INSTRUCTIONS
Prepare the dissertation digest paper with the maximal length of 6 pages (including all references, figures, and table) – in the English language only – following the IEEE double-column format using the published IEEE Conference Proceeding templates.
Authors of accepted submissions are required to present their digest within Dissertation Digest sessions of IM 2021, if the dissertation digest paper shall be included in the proceedings. Due to IEEE/IFIP technical co- sponsorship of IM 2021, your final paper is planned to be included in IEEE Xplore for archival value after the conference.
