The 2013 IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM 2013) was held in Ghent, Belgium, from May 27 to 31, 2013. Held in odd-numbered years since 1989, IM 2013 followed the 25 years tradition of 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 2013 focused on the theme "Smart Management in a Virtualized World" presenting recent, emerging approaches and technical solutions for dealing with future cloud, network and ICT infrastructures, as well as with novel services provided on top of these infrastructures. IM 2013 offered five types of sessions: technical, application, poster, panel and dissertation digest.

Within the 1st Workshop on Quality of Experience Centric Management (QCMAN) the paper entitled “Implementation and User-centric Comparison of a Novel Adaptation Logic for DASH with SVC”, which was partly funded by SmartenIT, was awarded with the “Best Paper Award”. Additionally, the paper on “A Fully Distributed, Replicating, Network-, and Topology-aware P2P CDN” (partially supported by SmartenIT) within the ManFI Workshop (5th International Workshop on Management of the Future Internet)  focuses on reducing the link congestion, and traffic peaks originating from P2P systems by replicating data during periods of low network traffic via the approach termed RB-Tracker.

The IM 2013 conference and its collocated workshops demonstrated again to be a highly active community and an interesting venue to SmartenIT’s interests, since the early ideas behind UZH’s PiCsMu was presented as a technical paper, additional ideas were collected to improve PiCsMu functionality, the traffic peak management by RB-Tracker paper by UZH within ManFI, and the Best Paper Award from the QCAM workshop for UniWue’s paper on the novel adaptation logic was received. Moreover, overall all SmartenIT members had the chance to check many excellent presentations and talk to senior researcher and experts to investigate on potential collaborations.
