11th International Conference on Autonomous
Infrastructure, Management, and Security (AIMS 2017)
July 10-13, 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, and keynotes. 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 labs 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.
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.
Scope and Topics:
Courses and Labs
AIMS 2017 features three hands-on lab sessions spread across its four-
day program. They provide participants with the opportunity to gain
first-hand experience with several state-of-the-art network and
service management technologies and tools. Each lab session starts
with a brief theoretical tutorial-style introduction and is followed
by a hands-on part, allowing participants to experiment with the tools
through a set of practical exercises. The first lab will focus on an
introduction to security games. The second lab will present how to
program smart contracts in blockchains. Finally, the third lab will
explore P4, the emerging high-level data plane programing language and
its applicability to packet processors.
Keynote, Conference, and Ph.D. Workshop
AIMS 2017 will feature two exciting keynotes, presenting real-world
challenges for Telco Providers and concepts for cyber resilience of
complex interdependent infrastructures: Prof. Dr. Marcel Waldvogel
(University of Konstanz, Germany), who will discuss "Getting Rid of IoT
Insecurity", and Dr. Matthias Bossardt(Lead Partner for Cyber Security
at KPMG, Switzerland) who will share his view with the audience on
"Cyber Security Challenges - A Business Perspective".
Moreover, the three technical sessions will present the latest results
in Security Management, Evaluation and Experimental Study of Rich
Network Services, as well as Management of Cloud Environments and
Services. AIMS 2017 will also feature three short paper presentations
covering Ph.D. research proposal discussions on the themes of Methods
for the Protection of Infrastructure and Services, and Autonomic and
Self- Management Solutions, as well as an overview of research results
on the topic of Security, Intrusion Detection and Configuration.
The AIMS 2017 will be held at University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
from July 10 - 13, 2017. Further information on the venue as well as on
accommodation is available at
