The 17th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2020) will be held 20-24 April 2020 in Budapest, Hungary. Held in even-numbered years since 1988, NOMS 2020 does follow the tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE Communications Society's forum for the technical exchange on management of networks, services, and communication technology focusing on research, development, integration, provisioning, and user communities.
The NOMS 2020 Dissertation Digest focuses on Ph.D. dissertations finished recently, especially within the 1 December 2017 to 30 November 2019 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 Ph.D. thesis. Furthermore, the list of journal, conference, and workshops papers, published as part of the Ph.D. 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.
Paper Formatting 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 NOMS 2020, if the dissertation digest paper shall be included in the proceedings. Due to IEEE/IFIP technical co-sponsorship of NOMS, your final paper is planned to be included in IEEE Xplore for archival value after the conference.
