The IFIP TC6 Working Group 6.6 has been very successful in organizing flagship events like IM and NOMS, as well as smaller events such as DSOM, MMNS and others. Key to success has been the good collaboration with our IEEE ComSoc sister organization CNOM. If elected, I would like to continue this successful collaboration. In addition, I would like to increase the coordination and cooperation with other IFIP WGs.
An important goal for the next years is to improve the quality as well as quantity of research contributions in our field. Quality can be improved by:
To improve quantity, it is important to attract more people to our field and increase the number of submissions to our journals and magazines (e.g. TNSM, JNSM, ComMag, IJNM). To promote our research field, additional ways to distribute information may be used, such as RSS feeds, wikis, podcasts and blogs. Collaboration with standardization and other organizations should be ntensified, as well as with operators and industry.
With your support I would like to contribute to achieve this goal.
