8th International Conference on

Autonomous Infrastructure, Management and Security

(AIMS 2014)

June 30 - July 3, 2014, Brno, Czech Republic


The AIMS international conference is a single-track event, including conference paper sessions, hands-ons and keynotes. The focus of AIMS is on early research done by Ph.D. students and young researchers in network and service management and security. The participants find here a dedicated place for getting a constructive feedback by senior scientists and they benefit from tutorials on transversal aspects of a research activity (e.g., publication strategies, paper reviewing, research presentation design). By taking part in a dedicated workshop, the Ph.D. students are invited at an early stage to present and motivate their work as well as their research plans. Finally, by being involved in practical hands-on sessions, Ph.D. students and young researchers will get an up-to-date knowledge combined with basic skills on emerging technologies. This way, AIMS acts as a complementary piece in the set of international conferences in the network and service management community.

Scope and Summary

AIMS 2014 focuses on the management of infrastructures, services and content, as focal components of the Future Internet. New paradigms as well as autonomic and fully distributed algorithms, virtualization and monitoring techniques or self-organizing overlays have to be investigated to design scalable and resilient frameworks able to deal with dynamic and often domain-specific environments, and also to cope with big data to process and content to be delivered. The design, monitoring, configuration and protection of the next generation of networked systems in an efficient, secure, and autonomic manner are crucial to commercially viable and successful networks and services.


AIMS 2014 will be held at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic.


The AIMS 2014 proceedings are now available on-line for Springer registered members at LNCS Vol. 8508.
