The NOMS conference, which is co-sponsored by IEEE (Communications Society) and IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing), is held every other year. NOMS and IM (Symposium on Integrated Management) are the top conferences for research in network systems. There were over 180 papers submitted for the conference and 57 were accepted for publication. The top 10 papers were reviewed by current and past chairs of NOMS and IM.
Congratulations on the great achievement!
