MONAMI 2012 aims at bringing together top researchers, academics and practitioners specializing in the area of Mobile Network Management, Service Management, Virtualization and Object Management.

Multiaccess and resource management, mobility management, and network management have emerged as core topics in the design, deployment and operation of current and future networks. Yet, they are treated as separate, isolated domains with very little interaction between the experts in these fields and lack cross-pollination. MONAMI 2012 offers the opportunity to leading researchers, industry professionals and academics around the world to meet and discuss the latest advances in these areas and present results related to technologies for true plug-and-play networking, efficient use of all infrastructure investments, and access competition. The aim of the forum is to disseminate the latest innovative mobile network solutions for increased competition and cooperation in an environment with a multitude of access technologies, network operators and business actors.

MONAMI 2012 invites researchers to submit papers within the scope of the conference that follow either evolutionary approaches based on current IP-centered architectures or introduce revolutionary approaches and new paradigms. Papers reporting experimental and empirical studies as well as implementation/industry results (including testbeds and field trials) are also welcome.

TOPICS Topics of particular interest include:

- Multiaccess networks and resource management

- Future Internet architectures for mobile network management - Energy efficiency for multiaccess networks

- Emerging & visionary multimedia services, service enablers & management - IEEE and 3GPP management standards and enabling technologies

- Design, implementation, and testbed/experimental evaluations

- Service and application management platforms

- Autonomic network monitoring and management - Architecture and design of new services with smart objects

- Security solutions for managed and infrastructureless networks

- Management of wireless cognitive networks

- Mobile network management and virtualization

Papers accompanied by a live demonstration at the conference are actively solicited.


Accepted papers will be published in Springer's LNICST series and will appear in the SpringerLink, one of the largest digital libraries online that covers a variety of scientific disciplines, as well as in the ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL). LNICST volumes are submitted for inclusion to leading indexing services, including DBLP, Google Scholar, ACM Digital Library, ISI Proceedings, EI Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus. See http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-1068921-0 for more information about indexing.


We encourage submissions of high-quality technical papers reporting original research that has not been previously published, and is not currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Full Papers should not exceed 14 pages in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST) format and must be submitted by

*22 April 2012*.

LNICST templates are available from www.springer.com/computer?SGWID=0-146-6-564009-0.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers, including a TPC member to ensure high quality and relevance to the topics of the conference. All accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes of ICST series and then be included in major article indexing services.



We invite perspective tutorial speakers to submit relevant proposals for a half-day tutorial. The scope of the tutorial proposal should be within the interest of MONAMI attendees (see Aim and Scope and topics of interest). In addition, tutorial proposals on related and complementary topics, e.g.mobile devices or applications, smart grids or alternative energy supply are welcome. Each tutorial proposal should include the title, objectives, abstract, outline, and indented audience. A short biography of each tutorial presenter should also be submitted along with the list of conferences/events that this tutorial has been previously presented.

Tutorial speakers will be compensated as per standard ICST guidelines.

Please submit your proposal in electronic form to the Tutorials Chair at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by 22 April 2012.
