6th Latin-American Network Operations and Management Symposium
(LANOMS 2009)
October 19th-21st, 2009
Conrad Resort & Casino
Punta del Este, Uruguay

Technically co-sponsored by the IEEE/IFIP/WG 6.9


The 6th Latin American Network Operations and Management Symposium (LANOMS
2009) will be held on October 19th-21st, 2008 at the Conrad Resort & Casino in
Punta del Este, Uruguay. LANOMS 2009 will offer the latest technical advances
in all aspects of the operation and management of distributed infrastructures,
including networks, application services and distributed systems in general.
LANOMS has been held in odd-numbered years since 1999 and pursues the tradition
of the NOMS and APNOMS events.

LANOMS 2009 is promoted by the University of the Republic of Uruguay (UdelaR).
It aims to be the primary forum in Latin America for the exchange of ideas and
results among the research, standards, vendor and user communities in the field
of operations and management. The symposium is co-sponsored by the
International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 6.6 on
Management of Networks and Distributed Systems , and by the IEEE Communications
Society Technical Committee on Network Operations and Management (CNOM).

Several types of sessions will be held at LANOMS 2009.

Technical sessions will be held for the presentation of full scientific papers
discussing recent research results.
Poster sessions are directed for more informal interactions and presenting work
in progress. Short papers can be submitted for consideration as poster
presentations. Posters will be selected from these short papers and full

Application sessions aim to complement the Technical Sessions with
contributions that emphasize practical experiences and lessons learnt in
conjunction with management technology. They will focus on aspects such as
real-world deployment scenarios, experiences with the management of new
services and technology, industrial applications of management technology,
implementation examples of new management technology, organizational impact,
and business cases. The intended audience especially includes decision makers
and experts from industry.

Paper submissions will undergo a rigorous review process performed by the
Technical Program Committee, which includes the most respected experts in the
field. We encourage the submission of papers that present new research results
or that present insightful results based on experience with the operation and
management of networks, systems, applications and services.The LANOMS 2009

to both technical and application tracks. Topics of interest include but are
