The 14th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM 2015) will be held 11-15 May 2015 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and hosted by the Ottawa Convention Centre. Held in odd-numbered years since 1989, IM 2015 follows the 27 years tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE Communications Society's forum for technical exchange on management of information and communication technology focusing on research, development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities. IM 2015 will focus on the theme "Integrated Management in the Age of Big Data" presenting recent, emerging approaches and technical solutions for dealing with Big Data as well as using it for management solutions. IM 2015 will offer five types of sessions: technical, experience, poster, panel and dissertation. High quality will be assured through a well qualified Technical Program Committee and stringent peer review of paper submissions. A special call for demonstrations is organized to allow industry partners and researchers to demonstrate early products and prototypes.

Authors are invited to submit original contributions (written in English) in PDF format through the IM 2015 web site. Only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted. Each submission will be limited to 8 pages (full papers) or 4 pages (short papers) in IEEE 2-column style. Papers exceeding these limits, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review. The authors of the IM 2015 top papers will be encouraged to extend their work and submit to IEEE TNSM (IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management. These extended papers will undergo the normal TNSM peer-review process.
