**********************************************************************

The  15th IFIP/IEEE  International  Symposium  on  Integrated Network
Management (IM 2017)  will be held  8-12 May 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal.
Held in odd-numbered years since 1989,  IM 2017 follows  the  29 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 2017  will focus on  the  theme "Integrated Management in the Cloud
and 5G Era"  presenting  recent,  emerging  approaches  and technical
solutions for dealing with 5G  and cloud  infrastructures,  as well as
associated   services   and   applications.   Submissions addressing
traditional network management challenges are also in the scope of the
conference.  IM 2017  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
rigorous peer review of papers.  A special call for  demonstrations is
organized  to allow industry partners  and researchers to demonstrate
early products and prototypes.
