This conference provides a unique opportunity to all IT educators,
researchers, and practitioners from all countries to get together to
network, develop lasting relationships, and exchange ideas. The clear
strength is the international participation and the following people
should attend:

• Educators, researchers, and practitioners from North America (including
US, Mexico, and Canada)
• Educators, researchers, and practitioners from all other parts of the
world, including developed, developing, and under-developed nations.
• Educators, researchers, and practitioners doing work in all areas of
Global IT Management

Track Title:
IT Service Management and Data Centers

Track Aim:
This track invites submissions derived from applied research which
addresses management and engineering problems, issues, and challenges
found currently in the Data Center and IT Function responsible for
providing right-sized IT services of value to their internal and external
users. Data Centers are core assets required for releasing the expected IT
services and the organizations invest relevant financial resources for
their deployment. Thus, ITSM and Data Centers are tied naturally, and ITSM
includes Data Center issues. We consider applied research no just already
implemented solutions in real settings but also solution proposals highly
feasible to be applied. In brief words, we consider applied research
papers to be naturally and highly relevant for both IT academic and
practitioner audiences. Our aim is to establish a knowledge-sharing bridge
between the global research and practitioner communities interested in
ITSM and Data Center topics. Thus, we invite academics and practitioners
interested in these relevant IT areas to submit papers mainly on the
following topics (not limited to):
Track Topics:
• Service frameworks and standards (ITIL, MOF, ITUP, ISO20K, COBIT,
CMMI-SVC, eSCM, eTOM, IT4IT) and Data Centers
• IT Service Management Functions (IT Operations Management, IT Technical
Management / ICT Infrastructure Management, Application Management, and
Service Desk) and Data Centers
• Critical Issues in Data Centers (Virtualization, Security, Risk
Management, Disaster Recovery Planning, Automatization Management and
Operation tools, DCIM tools, Open Source Tools, Design of IT Services,
Project Management)
• Emergent topics in Data Centers (DevOps, Green Data Centers, Green
Metrics for Data Centers, Maturity Models, Agile Approaches, Cloud and
Hybrid Data Centers, Software Defined Data Centers, Open Source Platforms
for Clouds such as OpenStack, CloudStack, OpenNebula, Decision-Making
Support Systems tools, Analytics in Data Centers)
• Success cases on ITSM and/or Data Centers Projects
• Short tutorials on ITSM and/or Data Center topics (1-hour)

Publication Options:
