Meet the leading experts at IM 2003!

Come join us at IM 2003 this March in Colorado Springs. This will be our eighth biennial IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management.

Sponsored by IFIP Working Group 6.6 on Management of Networks and Distributed Systems and the IEEE Communications Society, this premier event focuses on the pivotal role that integrated management strategies, new developments and solutions play in the worldwide information infrastructure. These will be sure to play a major role in revitalizing our industry going forward.

I promise you five powerful days of compelling technical presentations - a full program on hot topics and specific issues that influence your network strategy and relate directly to solving everyday problems. Focusing on the theme, “Managing it All,” you can anticipate:

  • A world-class program of renowned keynote speakers
  • Over twenty high-quality technical sessions
  • Sixteen timely tutorials presented by recognized leaders
  • Popular "Birds-of-a-Feather" ad hoc discussion groups
  • Poster sessions offering a more interactive presentation style
  • Perspectives of distinguished experts at the closing panel

Join hundreds of attendees from all over the world to meet friends, colleagues, and competitors. Discuss the rapidly emerging technologies that you will soon employ to meet tomorrow's integrated management requirements. Establish new contacts, and be part of this highly dynamic industry. Experience the global cooperation established at fourteen years of highly successful IM and NOMS (IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium) events. Catch the spirit of the Integrated Management week!

The meeting site, The Broadmoor Hotel, is ideally suited for our professional event and affords an excellent opportunity for you, friends and family to visit one of America's most hospitable cities not far from the scenic Pikes Peak.
