The 3rd IEEE Latin American Network Operations and Management Symposium (LANOMS'2003)
Iguassu Falls, Brazil - September 4 - 6, 2003

Call for Papers


The Third Latin American Network Operations and Management Symposium - LANOMS, to be held in Iguassu Falls (Foz do Iguaçu), Brazil, is the result of the great success of both LANOMS'1999 which was held in Rio de Janeiro and LANOMS'2001 which was held in Belo Horizonte, as well as the other events in the area of network management known as NOMS and APNOMS. NOMS (Network Operations and Management Symposium) was originally created 13 years ago, and nowadays constitutes a worldwide event for the researches in the area of network management. The Asia/Pacific community promoted the APNOMS (Asia-Pacific Network Operations and Management Symposium), which is an event more oriented to the research and development community in that region. Continuing the success of the second LANOMS, we will promote the third edition of LANOMS ( on September 4-6 2003, in Iguassu Falls, Paraná, Brazil.

The symposium is a promotion of the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), Brazil, technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society, and supported by IEEE Technical Committee on Network Operations and Management (CNOM).

The main goal of LANOMS is to create a forum more specific to the necessities of Latin America in the area of network management involving networking and telecommunication companies, academic institutions and equipment vendors. LANOMS is an event open to participants from all over the world who are interest in having, or already have, research or commercial liaisons in Latin America - one of the fastest growing regions in the world in networking. This year, we intend to increase the submissions from North America, Europe, Africa and Asia.
