IFIP/IEEE International
Conference on Management
of Multimedia Networks and
Services '97

July 8-10, 1997

Held at: Radisson Hôtel des Gouverneurs, Montréal
777, University, Montreal - Tel: (514) 879-1370

Organized by: Centre de recherche informatique de Montreal (CRIM)
Montreal, Canada

Sponsored by: IFIP Working Group 6.4 and 6.6 and IEEE



Scope :

Today, the trend is towards providing telecommunications services and in particular multimedia services in the emerging broadband, multimedia and "super-highway" era. To offer reliable multimedia services, the service architecture should integrate the service with its management while the multimedia networks that are used to provide those services need also a certain level of control and management. Therefore management is requested at both the service and network levels. Integration is also of paramount importance to facilitate the overall management process. The objective of this conference is to bring together researchers working in all facets of network and service management applied to broadband networks and multimedia services. The conference will serve as a forum for the dissemination of state-of-the-art research, design, development, and implementation experiences.
