The IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management took place in May, 2013 in the historical city centre of Ghent, Belgium. This year's theme is "Smart Management in a Virtualized World."
IM 2013 was held 27-31 May 2013 at Ghent University, Belgium. Held in odd-numbered years since 1989, IM 2013 will follow the 25 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 2013 focused on the theme "Smart Management in a Virtualized World" presenting recent, emerging approaches and technical solutions for dealing with future cloud, network and ICT infrastructures, as well as with novel services provided on top of these infrastructures. IM 2013 will offer five types of sessions: technical, application, poster, panel and dissertation digest. High quality was assured through a well qualified Technical Program Committee and stringent peer review of paper submissions. A special call for demonstrations was organized to allow industry partners and researchers to demonstrate early products and prototypes.
