11th International Conference on

Autonomous Infrastructure, Management and Security

(AIMS 2017)

July 10-14, 2017, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland

The AIMS International Conference on Autonomous Infrastructure, Management, and Security is a single-track event targeted at junior researchers and Ph.D. students in network and service management and security. It features a range of sessions including conference paper presentations, hands-on lab courses, educational keynotes, as well as tutorials on transversal aspects of a research activity (e.g., publication strategies, paper reviewing, and research presentation design). The objective of AIMS is to offer junior researchers and Ph.D. students a dedicated place, where they can discuss their research work and experience, receive constructive feedback from senior scientists, and benefit from a number of practical hands-on sessions and tutorials on emerging technologies and Ph.D./research life-related topics. By putting the focus on junior researchers and Ph.D. students, AIMS acts as a complementary piece in the set of international conferences in the network and service management community, providing an optimal environment for in-depth discussions and networking.

Scope and summary

AIMS 2017 will focus on the theme of security of networks and services in an all-connected world. With the rapid development of advanced communication and networking services, providing security, reliability and resilience while guaranteeing the best performance in a wide range of more complex, more dynamic and hyper-connected environments, has become crucial. To address these challenges, new paradigms, smart and fully distributed approaches, as well as scalable and flexible management solutions have to be investigated. The design, monitoring, configuration, and protection of the next generation of networked systems in an efficient, secure, and smart manner are crucial to commercially viable and successful networks and services.


AIMS 2017 will be held at the University of Zurich, Department of Informatics, Zurich, Switzerland from July 10 - 14, 2017.
