Call for Dissertation Digest Papers

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.

Submission Instructions

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.
