Working Group 6.6: Management of Networks and Distributed Systems
Aims and Scope


To facilitate cooperation between different organizations and individuals internationally in the areas of distributed operations and management, integrated network management, systems management, and service engineering. To be an effective conduit in the technology transfer between the academic and research communities, industry and the standard bodies.


Our planet is increasingly being networked using a variety of media, a variety of protocols and a variety of services. On the other hand, computers are becoming increasingly pervasive in a variety of forms and architectures ranging from large scale high performance systems to micro computers in any type of appliances, cars, etc. The scope of WG 6.6 is Operations and Management paradigms and technologies for these novel and complex systems and networks continuously evolving over different levels of abstraction such as element, network, service, and business level. The Operations and Management encompass different function areas such as configuration, fault, accounting, performance and security. This includes new technologies such as autonomic computing, distributed and policy based management as well as already established management protocols and information models. The scope of the working group encompass the operation and management of existing networked systems including enterprise networks and multi-provider networks as well as emerging ad-hoc and sensor networks, Grids, peer-to-peer networks and interplanetary networks.
