Several 90-minute tutorials will be given on September 17, prior to the technical sessions. We solicit proposals for tutorials on all topics of network and service management. Especially encouraged are topics related to integrated management of software defined infrastructure, advanced network operations and service management for scalable, seamless & secure, and mobile broadband services including architecture, technologies, experiences, standardization activities and so forth.

Same amount of money with registration fee will be paid per tutorial as an honorarium. No travel expense will be paid.

  2. A two-paragraph description of the tutorial, suitable for a web page overview.
