The development and deployment of various cloud computing technologies is in progress. We expect to see more and more content centric networks and content-based services coming to the market.

In addition, enabling technologies like LTE and LTE-Advanced will support wireless broadband services more widely within the next two years.

What's more, research in the management and architecture of future Internet(s) is gaining increasing importance. The rapid evolution mentioned above hinges on new network infrastructure, business and service models, and associated management platforms and architecDtures. APNOMS 2012 will encourage open discussions on technology alternatives that focus on the management and operation of current and future networks and services. APNOMS welcomes submissions based on implementation and experimentation, as well as simulation and analytical approaches.
